Wednesday October 25

A strong cold front moved through yesterday but we had another 70 degree day. Say goodbye to that for a while. Today will be close to ‘normal’ and the trend will be even colder over the next week and then some as we get to make up for lost time. There will be frost locally tomorrow morning and perhaps flurries in the mountains. The main weather event will be a strong storm coastal storm to end this weekend with heavy rain Sunday, followed by snow in western Maryland that should bring light accumulation. Then we remain cold through Halloween and into the first weekend of November.

It is time and this first image I can show with confidence there will be snow on the ground in western Maryland and West Virginia next Monday morning. I will be heading out west to see it and show it to you. FITF


Long Range A very long shot!

This next image is something I DO NOT TRUST! I am showing it to you because there is a good chance it will be shown on social media and needs to be addressed before the rumors begin. This is a 288 Hour forecast. Almost 2 weeks away!  I have NEVER seen a computer model accurately show a storm event that far away. The trend will lily push east and we need to consider that the Bay water is well above normal and influences the air temperatures nearby.  The cold air on the way will not cool this down enough yet.
