Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram has been obsessed with weather since she was a teenager. She earned a B.S. in Meteorology from North Carolina State University, then studied broadcasting and electronic journalism at Lyndon State College in Vermont. While in college, Chelsea worked as an operational meteorologist for V-Trans, the Vermont Department of Transportation through the Vermont Institute of Applied Meteorology. She also worked as a research meteorologist for Earthrisk Technologies.
Community outreach is very important to Chelsea. With heart disease on both sides of her family, she has worked closely with the American Heart Association promoting heart health and heart disease prevention. She’s also been very involved with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Before coming to Baltimore, Chelsea was a meteorologist in Colchester, Vermont, where she represented the state of Vermont at the Miss America Pageant.
The second half of the weekend has definitely been better than the first! High pressure brought the return of sunshine this Sunday with an official high of 43 degrees at BWI today. That’s 2 degrees above average for this time of year so this was a typical January day.
Snow showers rolled through early Tuesday prompting a brief winter weather advisory for areas north and west of town. With the showers moving out, this will leave the balance of the day mainly dry and cloudy.
Another very cold day is on tap with highs only in the upper 20s for most areas.
Winds relax somewhat tonight, but it is going to be *very* cold as we drop into the teens with some of the burbs in the single digits under mostly clear skies. Highs on Monday are in the upper 20s with plenty of sunshine.
*Winter Weather Advisories* & *Winter Storm Warnings* remain in place for portions of southern Maryland as well as the Eastern Shore through tonight. Many areas have already picked up a good 6-10″ plus of snowfall, as expected.
Round number one of the rain is winding down and leaving behind areas of fog and drizzle. Areas of dense fog will be possible overnight and a dense fog advisory might need to be issued. Round number 2 arrives tomorrow on the tail-end of the morning commute.
Wind chill values have been in the 20s, while actual air temperatures have been in the 30s. We will remain dry tonight while lows drop into the low 20s with increasing clouds.
Another chilly day is on tap for Monday and it will still be windy. The wind will make it feel more like the 30s on Monday. The winds really won’t relax until Tuesday.
We had warm air surging ahead of that throughout much of the day today, but as the front continues to progress east, the temperature are really beginning to drop.
A freeze warning will go into effect overnight for parts of the viewing area, Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram reports.
We tied a record high temperature at BWI today of 83 degrees (originally set back in the 1940s).
There is definitely a difference in the weather today compared to yesterday. Temperatures in many locations have reached into the 60s making it much warmer than just 24 hours ago.
