Wednesday March 2
What is “groovy time” you ask? Well, back to the 60s! Today we have temperatures about 10 degrees above average, bringing more energy to outdoor activities. But a cold front will arrive tonight and drop us into the 40s for a few days to balance things out.
This is the “weather spring” so appropriate to bounce back. This time a change from our model, with the warm temperatures of the weekend. So in honor of my wife: Flip Flop Army get ready for your marching orders. Check it out!
Morning surface weather
A weak stationary front is expected to push northward this afternoon, allowing a push of warmer air to bring us back to the 60s. However, the next cold front will arrive overnight. Maybe a brief shower, but the wind shift will be more noticeable as temperatures will be 15-20 degrees lower tomorrow afternoon.
Cool start, but these numbers are already a bit above average…
Spring energy in the air… The 60s most likely around Baltimore and the south… Staying in the 50s at the waterfront, Delmarva, and inland to the north.

I have suppressed the Friday showers, but it will be cool. It won’t last long.
This weekend is heating up with the notable bounce of the 70s from Sunday to Monday. Yes, it’s flip flops time… There may be a few rain showers in the mix in exchange… But those days will be MOST DRY! Then gusts of wind to mark the maximum temperatures and the return to reality by Tuesday.

*Disclaimer due to frequently asked questions:
I know there are spelling and grammatical errors. I’ve made a few public statements over the years, but if you’re new here, you might have missed it:
I’m dyslexic and discovered it in my sophomore year at Cornell. That didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree and being the first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington area.
I miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The automatic spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make matters worse.
All maps and information are accurate. “Word” stuff can get sticky.
There is no editor who can verify my work when I need it and have it ready to ship on a newsworthy schedule.
I accept this and maybe prove that what you read is really mine…
It’s part of my charm.
