Tuesday October 20 2020

This time of year we can expect more humidity when we get a warm up. That can bring in morning fog, and make the mild afternoons seem a little warmer. Reminder that today at 5 PM begins the NASA live stream of the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft probe taking a sample from an Asteroid. See more below.

Here is first look weather forecast, and NEW GFS Interactive simulation slider.  Also see the journal of Maryland Weather conditions observed in Baltimore yesterday, climate report today, sunrise/sunset, moon phase, and daily weather map.


Morning Set Up

Some areas of fog have developed as a light southeast wind has added more moisture with the milder temperatures.  Warmer winds will continue for a few days. This will keep showing afternoons in the 70s and keep that front and rain to our west.
