Monday October 26 2020

Big changes this week. We already saw a 30 degree temperature drop from Saturday to Sunday. This morning there is some drizzle and fog, then recover to the 60s for a couple of days.

The big story will be the snowstorm in the Southern Rockies entering Texas, while Tropical Storm Zeta flirts with hurricane intensity and aims for the Louisiana coastline.  Those will then send us heavy rain later in the week.

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

Drizzle and fog this morning, but the storm is moving away.

Snow is still falling across Colorado Ito New Mexico, north Texas through Nebraska and Kansas.

Tropical Storm Zeta has winds up to 70 mph and should become a hurricane before reaching Cozumel and Cancun. This is what Delta did a few weeks ago.
