Tuesday October 13 2020

Low clouds, fog, and drizzle has continued to hold tight in parts of our region. Elevation can play a role with the high level of moisture left behind our recent storm. A cold front is moving through the state, and that wind shift is what we need to help dry us out. At least to break up the clouds. The should happen in time for the big Mars Opposition show tonight.


Visible Satellite

This visible view of the clouds at 11 AM shows some interesting things.

  • Between Washington, Baltimore, and York, there are two layers of clouds.  Here is it quite dark and damp in spots.  Look closer (zoom in on mobile) and see the shadow of the higher clouds on the lower solid layer.  This lower layer includes areas of fog, especially in the hills north and west of the cities and int southern PA.
  • Western Maryland: The ripples show the influence of the northwest winds over the mountains. Where the air is pushed up, there are still clouds, but where the air rides ‘down’ the mountains it dries out and clears.
  • Delmarva: This cloud deck is more speckled, as it thins out and lets some sun through.
