Thursday April 8 2021

Before we get to today’s weather, I want to address the UFO reports last night. It was actually identified, but still special, or startling if you saw it.

This was the view from Brock Goddard that many had seen over central Maryland and Virginia. It was described as a long white to orange streak, or a cluster of many lights if you had better resolution. See his video below.

We have had more clouds mix in across our sky as a weak front is draped over our region. Where the winds are from the east from the ocean it is a little cooler. But inland, remaining mild.  

Today will still be nice, but we bring in the chance of showers Friday, then maybe thundershowers over the weekend when we warm back up.


Morning Surface Weather

We are still between a large and strong storm in the central US and the circulation over the Atlantic that has been nearly stalled all week. Eventually this pattern will break down.
