Tuesday January 23

A rough start to the day for a few hours as heavy rain and strong winds with s cold front move through. The bands of rain may contain a rumble of thunder, but the winds are expected to spike up between 30 and 45 mph. The warm start will be replaced by colder air as the winds shift and rain stops for most of us before noon.

Note, today is the anniversary of our largest snow event on record. Baltimore had a daily record of 25.5 inches of snow on January 23 2016. The storm total was 29.2 inches. Oh, we can dream…
