Saturday May 8
Another cold front is moving through that appears to have some circulation on that. This peso-low pressure is enhancing the rain this morning with this slow moving line.
Surface temperatures are in the lower 40s, so the freezing level is not too high up. As a result, some ice pellets could be mixed in with this cluster. That is part of what is giving the higher returns on Doppler Radar.
Here is an example of what might fall and how to identify them.

Radar Simulation —> slider
The radar simulation is proving to not be perfect. It is missing a chunk of this cluster in northern Maryland and southern PA. I have annotated that for the morning portion.
This afternoon there will be a flow from the NorthWest bringing in some heavy showers, which could contain thunder.

Behind this cold front it will be chilly. We will get a taste of that this afternoon.

Temperatures Sunday Morning
I would be on the lookout for First Advisories in the colder inland areas.
Also, plan to protect your plants by covering them or bring them inside tonight.
Mother’s Day Showers
The timing of this may bring northern areas rain showers late mornin to early afternoon.
Chilly temps with highs remaining in the 60s through next week.
Sunshine State 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.
