Severe Storm Risk Today Then Weekend Improves For Most Except Beaches

Severe Storm Risk Today Then Weekend Improves For Most Except Beaches

Friday July 27 2018

Too much rain! There has been a downpour around Baltimore this morning and the results of the record monthly rain are seen all around. Some area roads are still impacted and on the Susquehanna River the flood gates continue to open. This places Port Deposit and Have de Grace in the likely flood zone.  Now we set our sights on the risk for severe storms this afternoon and evening. Heavy rain will lead to more flooding, plus the potential for damaging winds to topple trees in soggy soil. We also have the watch for large hail and an isolated tornado.

Full Moon but no eclipse here

We have a full moon which may make the kids with cabin fever extra wild today, but the longer lunar eclipse of the century is NOT going to be seen here. Besides the clouds and rain, the timing does not line up for us. The eclipse is for the other side of the planet.
