If you live on the north side of Baltimore, then you may have seen the snow or graupel showers today. The radar has indicated that this was changing to rain around Baltimore and the rest of central Maryland, but you might have had some lucky flakes survive. Nothing is sticking for any road issues. But there will be one more wave of snow in a band that is part of the arctic air. When it arrives, you will feel it for sure.

Here is a look at the afternoon satellite showing the flow of cold air with plenty of clouds off of the Great Lakes.

Satellite Loop

Notice the ripples in PA, MD, and VA. That is a result of the instability as cold air flows up and down the mountains.

The dark line moving south form Lake Erie is the surge of arctic air to ignite the last snow band and our big cool down.


Radar at 2 PM

Snow = blue; Rain = Green

The initialization was pretty good compared to the 2 PM simulation below. Note this was generated a few hours earlier, so its good to compare to make sure the model is identifying everything properly.

Snow Day Kit

Our ritual the night before a storm is finally in one kit. Maybe if more Maryland kids had this, the storm would reach us 🙂

  • This includes a very soft raglan Tee printed inside out with #FITF AND the check list,  #FITF spoon for under your pillow, ice cube tray with snowflake shapes, chalk, a #FITF wrist-band, a mini SnowStix, and a bag to carry it all in.
  • The introduction special price will end tonight.
  • This will also help us give a free Snow Day Kit to each of the Just In Power Kids.
