Friday November 3

A mild start this morning around 60ºF comes with moisture and some areas of thick fog. The lowest visibility under 1 mile will slow down traffic between Baltimore and York along I-83 and I-95  east including Delaware and much of Delmarva. Once that dissipates, very warm air will surge ahead of a cold front. Some showers will reach our northern/western suburbs but most areas spend most of the day dry as we jump into the mid and upper 70s. That’s 2 months back in time for what we would expect in September.

The Hunters or Beaver Moon will be full just after midnight, but the kids might be a little wild today thanks to warm temps and it being Friday. I will be in Northern Frederick County for my first FITF assembly of the season, so we will be talking snow. We only have a chance of a flurry next week.

Spotty showers this evening mark the front that will tank the temps. Highs on Saturday will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler in the 50s, only to get back to the 70s on Sunday. The next storm focuses the rain on Tuesday and then we settle back to cooler temps much of next week. Here are the maps:

Warm morning but the cold air is not too far away. That will settle in Saturday 


Highs Today

This is one of the coolest projections for today. Some suggestions could reach the upper 70s.

The band of showers in the mountains will fade away by lunch time. More spotty showers could pop up this evening, but remain light.
