I would have guessed among the cloudiest, but did not expect that I95 stripe.

 

    I wonder if that's connected to May being a peak season for backdoor cold fronts.    The signal here in the Mid-Atlantic certainly looks "wedgey".

I've noticed several times over the years its a misty cloudy in Baltimore in Spring but partly sunny with just cumulus clouds out by my house once you get further away from the Bay/Ocean maritime airmass.  Kinda opposite the winter when its way more often nice in Baltimore and cloudy out where I am.

I've found it be to a little more cloudy in Frederick compared to Moco.  It's usually either post-frontal passage or from one of those little northern stream disturbances that causes debris clouds to stream across from the mountains.  It's not a showstopper for me because I like being closer to the more rugged trails, but it's noticeable.

Considering we just received 3" of rain, my yard isn't soggy at all. It was a good soaker too. Today was decent although felt a little chilly when the clouds rolled in. Good for getting yardwork done. 

Anyone else notice tons of gnats already? Almost impossible to get work done without a hat or head covering. A lot of birds in yard, so maybe something else eats gnats?

We're wasting prime spring weather on days stuck in the upper 50s with cloud cover.  Hard pass.

This weather pattern is the pits lol. The only reason I’m tolerating it is because we needed the rain, but I’m ready for that GL low to move on out. These types of northern stream systems are becoming all too predictable…mostly cloudy, cool with some wind is the typical output. Awesome.
