April 2 2021
We are still in the grip of a winter-like weather pattern. This even brought snow showers to Kent Island and parts of the Maryland Eastern Shore this morning. The good news is that the winds are easing up, and the clouds will diminish tonight. The down side of that will be the core of the cold air early Saturdays morning that may challenge the record low temperatures at BWI.

The little warm up next week may be replaced by another push of cold air next weekend. Here we see that next trough in the jet stream (blue) arriving Friday and Saturday.
Stay tuned as we continue to have active weather and a bumpy ride early in the season.
