May 12 Tracking The Old Coastal Storm Returning Inland For This Weekend
May 12 2022
Thursday Morning Report
That old storm that has been wondering off of the East Coast has been causing all of our wind and shoreline flooding this week. Yesterday it was evident on satellite as the center circulation was drifting back towards the coast.
Check this out: That storm was also responsible for the increase in clouds farther inland. This will be similar to what we expect today.
The focus will be on the onshore wind, which will build back in rain. However it is impossible to pin point where and when on Saturday and Sunday. So outdoor plans may be affected but not promised for any location. The rain will pop up at any time with more numerous thunderstorms in the afternoons and evenings.
The winds will be increasing and shifting direction around that Low Pressure. This is going to bring clouds back and eventually develop sprinkles today and widespread showers Friday through the weekend.
Cloud Forecast 8 AM to 8 PM
Showers will expand across southern Maryland and Southeast Virginia.
Some sprinkles may reach into metro Annapolis and Baltimore by the end of the day.
Another widespread range from mid 70s inland to 50s along the coast.

Rain Animation Friday Through Sunday Night
The slow moving storm off the coast will circle around, and is expected to build back in later in the week. At this time it looks like increasing clouds Friday with showers and storms next week.
7 Day Forecast
It is IMPORTANT to note that shower and storms will be scattered and random through the weekend. More numerous in the afternoons, but impossible to plot specifically for any location or event in this pattern.
I wish I could do better, but it will be a game of chance.

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:
I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:
I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell. I didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region.
I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse.
All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.
There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline.
I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…
It’s part of my charm.
