Monday May 10
We remain in a chilly pattern as another weather system will be passing through today. This one will bring rain to southern Maryland, Virginia, and The Carolinas.
I mention this because metro and mountain regions get a chance for some sun, but temperatures remain below average. We still may have one more morning with inland frost.
We will also be watching the weather at Wallops Island in Virginia for the 4th attempt to launch the latest rocket mission this evening.

Rocket Launch Weather
The cloud forecast looks better, but still scattered pockets. So if this happens, it will be a gamble where you may be able to view it.
Scheduled Launch: 8:04 PM; Window = 40 minutes. I will have an update as we try to track it later.
Yesterday, upper level winds were unfavorable, but they will be lighter this evening.
Watching inland suburbs for possible frost as a clearing sky will allow temperatures to reach the 30s.
Chilly temperatures remain this week. There are some model guidance plots that bring tens near 70ºF by the end of this week. Even if BWI touches that mark, it will remain below average.
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.
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.
