Friday May 1 2020

We just finished the month of April that was wetter and cooler than average. How do you think May will begin?  Well, we have left over rain showers today and more rain expected Sunday. But the weekend temperatures should warm to 70ºF. However, the outlook for the first two weeks of May will be cooler than average. This is the weather pattern we expected this winter and never got. Now that it’s here, it’s delaying our typical spring.

Morning Set Up

Flooding Continues

High water on some rivers, and high water on the Bay. Flooding has been an issue in Bowley’s Quarters and downtown Annapolis.

Rain Showers

This radar snapshot was not close to any short term computer model. So there is little guidance for today. We will track this and plan for more pop up showers at any time through this afternoon.

This cluster is a morning thing. There will be more showers develop in the afternoon.

Notice the blue (colder air aloft). This pattern continues to send troughs and surges of colder air into the eastern US.



Temperature Outlook

This may not look as intense as the maps above, but the trend is for afternoons to be 5 to 10 degrees cooler than normal.  We should we warming 1 degree every 3 days.
