October 31 2018

You will not feel it this morning, but we will have a warm day ahead of us. There is a storm to our west and it will help shift the winds push up the thermometer close to 70ºF this afternoon. That pales in comparison to the hottest Halloween in Baltimore in 1946 (85ºF). But, this is great news for the kids in their costumes through this evening. Depending on how soon the clouds roll in, we may stay mild through the evening.

Rain will begin to arrive locally Thursday night, but Friday could bring some thunder. Then a chilly rain may repeat last Saturday with dry weather returning Sunday.  The outlook shows another warm up next week, but winter may be around the corner.

More Winter Weather Outlook Stuff: This afternoon I will post a list of winter weather folklore. Tomorrow a look at hints from the tropics.  All will be combined into my call for winter snowfall this week.

Clouds Thickening Up

There will be more clouds arriving from the west and south. If they arrive sooner, then temperatures will actually stay closer to 60ºF into the evening.

The steady rain will arrive Friday with some thunder possible. It will be heavy at times. Like last weekend, Saturday appears to be cooler and wet, but the winds will dry us out Sunday. Another storm next week will take a warmer track.
