Thursday August 5 2021

We have and a break this week, but that is about to end. Summer heat will make a strong return starting this weekend, then full force next week.

A few chances for rain, but you may want to schedule watering your gardens and outdoor plants.

Morning Surface Weather

That storm system and stalled front are still off of the coast, so there will be cooling winds and clouds for the beaches. But the rain should be offshore.

Looking west, we see our future. A large dome of high pressure will dominate the next week with building heat. Perfect timing for The Maryland Trek

Sunshine State Of Mind

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.
