Thursday April 19 2018

We have a relatively mild start with temperatures in the mid 40s to mid 50s. But this is the surge of air ahead of our next cold front. Showers will be moving through in a few pulses today, with he peak rain and temperatures around noon.  Then strong colder winds will build in and drop the thermometer this afternoon. Gusts up to 35 mph and temps crashing through the 40s, and continuing to fall tonight. A Freeze Warning is once again in place for areas west of The Bay.  This chilly outlook extends through next week.

Water Vapor Satellite Loop

Check out the circulation entering Ohio this morning. That is a very potent upper level Low and was responsible for snow through the north central plains yesterday. We get mostly rain out of it, but snow will return with a few inches in Garrett County to Snowshoe, WV. This will kick up the winds and crash out temps this afternoon.
