Monday January 22 2018

We are on the warm side of the storm track and will get warm air surging in ahead of rain. Most of today will be dry, but some sprinkles are possible later this afternoon. The main rain will arrive overnight and last through Tuesday when a few rumbles of thunder are possible. This will help to clean some of the salt off of cars and the roads. The main story will be the temperatures reaching the 60s, however more normal conditions will return mid week and snow back into western Maryland and mountain ski resorts. Our snow chances will have to wait at least another 10 days or so, but winter will come back in February.

Rainfall Potential

Baltimore is 1.34″ below normal for this month! So we could use any precipitation!  The bulk of the rain will fall along the mountains, but a decent push for a quarter to half an inch in much of central Maryland. 

Jet Stream: Weather Trend

Friday and the weekend will warm up again, then the pattern appears to show long term cooler as we enter February. At least back to near normal… The longer range shows a stronger push of cold air back for the middle of next month that could be similar to how January began for us.  There is hope winter lovers.
