September 24, 2023

Sunday Morning Update

Overnight Ophelia was further downgraded to Post Tropical. It is now being treated as Low Pressure and lived up to the flooding forecast overnight. There was a push of high water that led to flooding in Annapolis and other western parts of the Chesapeake Bay. We will track the next high tide cycle below.

There has also been additional rainfall and gusty winds to down trees overnight.

This report will include the forecast today for the local football games AND into Monday. Also the outlook into next weekend.

Rainfall Estimate So Far

I have seen many say they have been underwhelmed by the storm so far. While it has mostly behaved as expected, there was more rain overnight. That brings us to these totals estimated by Doppler Radar as we begin today. This is close to the forecast with still more falling.

7 Day Forecast

This week will remain cool. Showers are still possible through Tuesday, then improving and returning to the 70s later in the week.

The storm next weekend is a wild card. I would not promise it yet… just something to watch.

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos and occasional other glitches. I take responsibility for my mistakes and even the computer glitches I may miss. 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 during my second year at Cornell University. It didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree and being the first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. One of my professors told me that I had made it that far without knowing and to not let it be a crutch going forward. That was Mark Wysocki, and he was absolutely correct! I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. I also can make mistakes in forecasting. No one is perfect at predicting the future. All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.  There has been no editor who can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. Barbara Werner is a member of the web team that helps me maintain this site. She has taken it upon herself to edit typos when she is available. That could be AFTER you read this. I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me… It’s part of my charm.
