Saturday Evening Update February 27 2021

The start of this weekend was damp with. chilly rain and fog.  But when that broke and we got the sun we expected, the afternoon quickly warmed to the mid 50s.  That is if you were away from the water.

Sunday will be a different story. It is the end of February and I was trying to think of the best way to describe the day.  March has its lamb or lion, but what about this?  Well, I figured if someone was stuck inside with the frequent snow and ice we had this month, it would be like a hibernating bear.  Now give that bear an afternoon to get outside, only to be followed by a soggy day with temperatures in the lower 40s.  That bear would be grumpy. Agree?


Saturday Evening Surface Weather

This evening remains somewhat mild as the full moon was visible, but its about to end.  Cooler air is moving in from the northwest while the next wave of Low Pressure will bring us the rain by morning.   I have a different way I want to present the timeline to you below.

Chilly, and it doesn’t move!  The best way to show you how it will feel outside, was this snapshot timeline (8 AM, Noon, 4 PM, and 8 PM).  Slide through, I promise you these are different time stamps, but we will be stuck all day in the lower 40s.

The animation is below, but I know the times are not easy to reach there.
Here are key time frames with annotation to show the movement.
Notice, the band of rain will move up to the Maryland/Pennsylvania border around noon, then breaks up to showers, only to move back south at night into Monday morning.

There is a lot of chatter about the Polar Vortex possibly impacting us mid month.
I will address that in my next update Sunday morning.
