Thursday November 1 2018

A brand new month but we carry the heat from Halloween over today. In fact we should reach into the 70s as the breeze picks up ahead of the next storm. This one will bring most of its hit Friday afternoon and night. Then colder air will move in over the weekend. Much like the last storm, this one will bring the heaviest rain at night and should be moving away to start the weekend, but it will turn colder.

For what its worth, this pattern turns warm next week, but I think the warm start to the month is a signal of the extreme flip that could bring our first snow within a week of Thanksgiving. Then an early start to winter.  I posted two more winter outlook articles yesterday. My call for winter snowfall is on the way.

The breakdown is important! I have seen quite a few events since this summer with a sharp cut off just west and north of Baltimore. This may play a role in winter storms and snow ahead.
