Friday November 30 2018

We have yet another rain event on a weekend. This one comes in at the start of a new month and season. December 1 is the beginning of meteorological winter. In Baltimore the average high at BWI is 50ºF on this date, but we will stay a little cooler than that. Just not cool enough for snow… yet.



This post is just a quick timeline to help you plan your day. It will not be a total washout, but we will have late morning showers that will eventually lead into steady rain later in the day. A better chance of the steady, moderate rain will be overnight.


Morning Ice Inland?

For starters, I do want to caution the damp ground and cold temperatures north and west of Baltimore. Temps may drop below freezing, so there could be some sidewalks and driveways icing up. There are a few degrees separating the NAM 3 Km and HRRR models. But still close enough to note…

The NAM  Km Model is colder…



Temps will warm up by noon and hold steady most of the day
