Memorial Day Still Has Rain And More During The Week

Memorial Day Still Has Rain And More During The Week

Screen Shot2016-05-30 07_17_58May 30 2016- Thank you to all men and women that served our nation and gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. That is the ultimate message on this Memorial Day  as we remember and honor. We have some good weather news for services and celebrations. Trying to make the most of this holiday, the bulk of the heavy rain that hit last night has moved out, but some lingers along the beaches. That will be the trouble spot today as Tropical Depression Bonnie is stalled and the front will be as well. Essentially, more rain will develop and the heaviest should fall over southern Maryland and Delmarva. That might make for an early traffic jam heading back home. It could once again produce local flooding conditions with training rain and thunderstorms. Between 2 to 3 inches of rain could fall in the prime target zone.

Here is a quick look at the radar simulation showing the redevelopment of rain, and there will be some scattered thunderstorms inland but some heat as well. The high temperature map shows where sun is more likely to break out vs. the areas that will hold on to the clouds.  In short, there weather will not be the same across our region. Some sun, hot, and scattered storms west and north of the Bay. More clouds and rain likely near Rt 50 and south/east to the coast.
