Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was really a split decision. Saturday a washout and Sunday was terrific.

Saturday’s rainfall broke a 23 day dry spell at BWI-Marshall. The airport received .72 inches of rain bringing the month’s total to .84 inches. Other locations in the region measured 1 to 1.5 inches. Despite the rain, the month will probably end in a deficit at the airport. As of Sunday the rain total is 1.82 inches below the 30 year average.

A cold front will be moving across the Mid Atlantic region Monday, probably rain free. Much colder air will filter in behind the front though, driving temperatures below average.

An upper air low pressure system will be parked just to the north and will keep the cold air flowing for several days. Upslope flurries or snow showers are possible in the Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia mountains. A few sprinkles wouldn’t be out of the question closer to the Bay on Tuesday and Wednesday.
