Tuesday November 27 2018

It is Giving Tuesday and the storm to our north is giving us plenty of wind and cold air. The snow is locked up to the north and some reaching western Maryland. After a few cold days, another storm reaches us making yet another wet weekend. The extended outlook does show the pattern change on target in early December after a mild start to the month.

Temps And Wind Chill Today





Wind Gusts

Gusty today, stronger tomorrow.



Looking Ahead

The next storm will bring showers Friday. At this point it looks like an afternoon arrival, so the risk of icing will be confined to the mountains. But heavy rain is expected on Saturday… especially in the afternoon (again).


Temperature Outlook

After the weekend storm, warmer air will surge in… But don’t be lulled by the warm start to December. There will be a crash with the pattern change around December 5-8


Pattern Outlook

The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is the best predictor of cold and stormy patterns. It does NOT give specifics on storms, just the set up for the atmosphere to ‘turn’. This appears to show up between December 5th and 8th.
