October 29 Storm Day: High Winds And Major Coastal Flooding

Flooding
Severe Weather
Forecast
Warnings

Friday  October 29

Today is our storm day! Rain has already moved in, and a lull has been expected, before the main event mid day through evening. 

This report has a look at the Advisories for wind and coastal flooding, radar simulation and new wind forecasts below.

Schools have closed in anticipation of a combination of these factors. It will be worst this afternoon!

Traffic Problems: 

  • Storm drains clogged with leaves and wet leaves on road.
  • Wind restrictions on bridges likely.
  • Trees and power lines may get knocked down.
  • There will also be a total of 1 to 2+ inches of rainfall, which could lead to local inland flooding. 
  • Winds will also be gusting mid day and this afternoon between 50 and 60 mph.

 

Morning Surface Weather

The original storm has occluded. This new Low is what we will get today. That large circulate is responsible for the strong winds from the East-Southeast.

Major flooding is expected along the coastal areas of the Chesapeake Bay and some rivers. I have a spotlight on water level forecasts below for Baltimore, Annapolis, and Cambridge.

 

 

Worst Flooding in 10 to 20 years:

I have seen that it was NWS that made the mention of Hurricane Isabel. That storm raised a lot of anxiety. This is not the same as that once Cat 5 hurricane, but the flooding may be comparable ‘in some areas’, but not all.

Severe Storm Outlook

The risk for storms to turn severe is marginal, but the wind speeds may mimic severe storm limits (58 mph).
