Monday April 12 2021

Even with a cool day, the atmosphere has had enough energy to produce some strong showers. This should not be like the cluster of storms we saw last night, but is all part of a changing pattern this week, which I will address next. But for now, this may impact your kid’s sports activities or your plans.

The purpose here is the track the showers and contrast it with the HRRR Model, which updates every hour.  It does appear as if it maybe nearly 1 hour ahead of schedule on the north band but behind for the southern part of this. Check it out.

Radar Simulation —-> HRRR Model

I noticed the cluster in Frederick at 6 PM, looked a lot like the snapshot above 40 minutes earlier.  However, the band of rain expected to hit southern Maryland seems to be missing or lagging father west in Virginia.

I post this to see if it may be on to something, or to spot some limitations in the season ahead.

Sunshine Sate Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
