Tuesday May 5 2020
Today is Teacher Appreciation Day and Cinco de Mayo. In this first week of May we will also celebrate Nurses, and end with Mother’s Day. These are all signals of mid spring, but the weather will return to late winter. In the cold pattern with a few events, snow is still possible in the mountains of western Maryland time this week. Flurries could reach metro areas Saturday and widespread frost on Sunday. It will feel more like March.
- Tuesday: Cooler, Rain south. Most get rain tonight.
- Wednesday: Chilly Rain, Snow in the mountains.
- Thursday: Dry, Cool
- Friday: Chilly rain, more mountain snow.
- Saturday: Rain showers mixed with snow or flurries.
- Sunday (Mother’s Day): Morning Frost Inland.
I wanted to start with the highlights through the weekend. Please see the breakdown and timeline below.
Tuesday Afternoon Highs: 10 to 15 degrees below average.
Rain: Should pass south today, but spread in tonight.

It will be a wet and chilly day for most of us.
Less rain in southern Maryland. Snow develops in western Maryland.
The time of day will battle with potential stickage. A dusting to a few inches (on the highest mountains) are possible. More snow is likely on Friday.
Skipping To Friday
Rain should be with us most of the day. The cold air will be deeper and time out with the evening to allow for a better chance of stickage.
Snow showers will be close! This model depiction is showing flakes in southern PA, but I believe the afternoon will develop more. Most of central Maryland will get chilly rain showers, but snow flakes could mix in.
