Tuesday March 30 2021

After a chilly start and some patchy frost, we have a nice afternoon on the way.  Perfect timing for my son’s start of baseball practice, and after all school sports (where is it open).

Steady rain arrives tomorrow afternoon, with some heavy bands and thunder to the south overnight. By Thursday morning, the cold air will bring wet snow to metro Baltimore and north. Yes, that will be April Fools Day, but it’s not a joke.

Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure in control with the wind shifting from the south/southwest to bring back a warmer afternoon. That cold air in the northern plains will reach us in two days.
