Okay, I’m officially tired of gray, drippy skies and chilly temperatures while it’s actually warmer and sunny north and west of here. This is a typical cold air damming wedge, which is due to an onshore eastern wind off the cool ocean waters and is somewhat “normal” for springtime here in the Mid-Atlantic. We do need the rain given the growing drought conditions in our region, but it would be nice to see some sun now and then. Looks like Tuesday may provide a little sunshine, with Wednesday looking even better.

As for chasing potential the long range models aren’t showing much hope for storms in our area through early next week. We may still get a chase in before the end of March, but it looks like the final week of the month may be the first opportunity.
