March 13 2020

It is Friday the 13th and for many families and schools the last day of normalcy thanks to coronavirus closings. I have two school aged kids who will be home with me for a few weeks as well. At this time I think it will be OK for them to go outside and play, and tracking the weather may be helpful for adults to get out for a walk or just fresh air. That is in nature and avoiding crowds.

This morning we had the heavy rain move through between 3 and 6 AM. The resulting dampness on the ground has led to some fog developing.

Today will turn breezy, as temps get up to near 70ºF across Central Maryland.

This weekend: Cooler!  Saturday night into Sunday morning will bring rain ending with a mix of snowflakes.
