Wednesday May 3 – This morning is already cool but we are about to make up for lost time. The warm February and April is about to get payback and it could last into Mother’s Day weekend. First, we have a drop to the 50s this morning and that is just a sample of the pattern ahead. The main story this week might be the heavy rain on Friday that will change everything. So field trips and plans that day may have to consider this:

I want to skip ahead to Friday, but should quickly mention:

Today: ? Mostly Sunny (south) Partly Cloudy (north)! Highs Lower 60s

Thursday: ⛅️ Partly Sunny. Highs Lower 60s… ?Rain arrives late evening or overnight.

Friday: ⛈ Heavy rain and Thunderstorms. Some flooding. Highs near 70ºF

Then it gets chilly

Friday Rain

Heavy Rain is likely much of the day, with the heaviest around lunch time.


Closer look: The timing of the cold front (at this time) appears to be mid day


On the cool side of the storm and under the developing upper level patter, showers will develop in the afternoon and evening. This could produce cold downpours with small hail



Rainfall Potential

Yes, there could be local flooding in the downpours on Friday


Chilly Pattern Next Week

The upper level pattern that develops this weekend behind the storm will settle in through next week. Some morning could be frosty inland from Baltimore…especially near and north of the PA line.  Temps will average 10 to 20 degrees below average as some days stay in the 50s.


I wil have more on this chilly pattern later this morning.
