There is so much to discuss because there is so much rain. A lot fell on Tuesday leading to flooding warnings that continue in Baltimore and Harford Counties until 9:00 AM. Baltimore’s BWI measured 2.58″ setting a new record for the date. The old record was 2.00″ set in 1963. Looking at the Doppler Radar estimation and that was more than shown here. So places that appear with over 3 and 4 inches may have received more! Note that this was only the 4th time this month with measurable rain. This dry pattern is being reversed. A lot more rain is on the way through the weekend, and that is ‘before’ any impact from Joaquin. I will have more details on that expected hurricane off of the coast in my next report. Also, temperatures over the next few days will drop with highs only in the upper 50s and low 60s.
Closer look at some of the heavy rain areas between Bel Air, Reisterstown, and Frederick:
More Rain On The Way
The forecast into the weekend looks very wet! In fact a front stalled off of the coast will buckle back to the west. This radar simulation does NOT include Joaquin! If we get that storm, it would arrive early next week. So prepare for more flooding for sure.
