Wednesday February 26 2020
A Dense Fog Advisory is in place this morning. Visibility dropped down to 1 mile or less will make travel slow and has led to school delays in Queen Annes County in Maryland. The low visibility extends beyond the advisory locations this morning and should be with us possibly until lunch time. The next weather focus will be possibly thunderstorms tonight and snow in Western Maryland.
Tomorrow will be colder and windy. Some advisories are already in place for PA counties as gusts are expected to reach 50 mph.
Dense Fog (and other) Advisories
Severe Storm Risk (Tonight)
Note: The risk is ‘marginal’ which is small. There may be rumbles of thunder and strong winds. If we get storms to turn severe, small hail, gusts to 58 mph are possible. The tornado threat is very-very low. The time around midnight will limit the available energy to feed into the system.

Radar Simulation —> slider
- Showers become more widespread as we can see the heavy rain and snow in the mountains charging east.
- The most action will be within an hour of midnight as the line of possible thunderstorms crosses the region. Heavy snow will remain over Western Maryland, but some snow will mix in after midnight in the western and northern suburbs.
Widespread 40 to 50 mph bursts are expected during the day. The Wind Advisories may be expanded into Maryland.
It will be chill through the weekend. But the cold can’t hold like most of this winter. Next week will feel like spring, and I expect the actual temps will be warmer than shown here.
