Friday March 23 2018

The snow pack on the ground is helping to refrigerate the atmosphere and we will remain in the daytime thaw/nighttime freeze cycle into the weekend. The Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington this weekend had to make special arrangements to accommodate, but their peak is still about 1 week away.  As far as the weekend weather for us, there is another storm, that will pass to our south. This may bring snow to Virginia mountains and Southern VA Saturday night into Sunday morning. We could get some flurries or light snow on the back side Sunday morning. Then we set our sights on the warm up next week. This may time out perfectly for the Orioles home opener next Thursday.

Morning Temperatures

This Afternoon

We should have another mostly sunny day.



The next storm will be doing south and just miss our region. There will be a band of snow in the West Virginia mountains to Southern Virginia Saturday night into Sunday morning.  Following this there is a chance for some light snow. See more below.


Sunday Morning 

The NAM 3 Km Model 

This model shows a push of that system farther south and takes some energy into our area at sunrise on Sunday. This should not be a travel issue, but there might be some flakes flying for ambience.



Warm Trend: Jet Stream


The shift in the jet stream will begin next Tuesday. This will establish the warmer flow during the second half of next week
