Happy Valentines Day ❤️ We are in for a wild ride that includes temperatures near 70ºF Thursday and then snow on Saturday. I said winter wasn’t done and today is the day to show off your love of snow.  Wear your L❄️VE shirts and get a photo solo or with your loved ones. Please look for my post about it on Facebook this afternoon around 2:14 PM and then share your photo so we can share the love. Your support has helped raise over $5,000 for the pediatric oncology wellness program Shannon and I are building. THANK YOU!

Weather Update: Please read closely, we have a lot of changes over the next few days.

Warmest day of the week! There spread on the models still puts metro Baltimore to 70ºF within the margin of error. It will be more than 20 degrees above average!


More rain showers developing around the low Chesapeake Bay



Rain in the morning


Weekend: Winter Returns

This is a storm that models have only caught on to in the past 24 to 36 hours. It is based on the front returning farther north and just barely tapping into the brief bought of cold air in place.  Considering the model accuracy this winter, I do not believe we can lock into ‘amounts’ at this time since we need to firm up the precise track and freezing line.

Note: The track gives us a southeast wind, which would normally bring in warmer air to metro/I-95 locations. That needs to be factored in before promising snow totals. See the animation below.
