Tuesday November 21

You want to know something interesting? 117 years ago on this date, Baltimore hit a record high of 79ºF. Yeah, that’s not going to happen this year.  We have flipped the switch to normalcy and will be trending coder for the foreseeable future. While we will warm a little this afternoon, clouds moving in will signal the next storm that is going to bring some of us rain tonight. Some, not all. The trend we all get will be colder winds into Thanksgiving and then another shot over the weekend that might bring some of that Lake Effect Snow over the mountains with flurries on Sunday.  Here’s the quick run-down…

Stats For November 21

Normal High:  54ºF

Record High:  79ºF in 1900

Normal Low: 35ºF

Record Low: 16ºF in 1951

Sunrise: 6:57 AM

Mild Afternoon

A sunny morning will give way to increasing clouds,  but we will remain dry during the day.

Rain Overnight…. East

A coastal system will bring rain around the Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore. But it develops around midnight and should be ending during Wednesday morning. On the flip side, snow showers will move into western Maryland. Only a dusting if anything expected there.

Thanksgiving and Friday will be dry but colder…

Weekend Outlook

Saturday (Rain) Showers:

The next system will bring in rain showers Saturday afternoon and evening.


Sunday Morning Flurries?

The colder air and wind direction on Sunday morning supports some Lake Effect Snow crossing the mountains. Much like this past Sunday night, we could get in on the action early this Sunday morning. Just a few flakes and no stickage expected.
