Friday February 9

Is it possible to go from ice and a deep freeze to flooding rains all while under severe drought? The answer is yes and we are about to experience that.  That benefits of the storm that is about the hit us is that it comes with warm air so there will be no question of a freeing line for snow or ice to try and explain. In fact, the edge of the really warm air will come along with the storm track, so Sunday will show 60ºF in some of our area.

Also, we need rain! According to NWS, Baltimore is 5 inches below normal since November and we are about to make up a lot of that. The latest indication is that a wide area will get over 2 inches, most of which will be on Sunday.

Here is the latest look at the storm on the way, after a chilly Friday. If you are making your weekend plans, Saturday is the day to get out.  Our rain will arrive by the evening and the heaviest will fall Sunday morning.
