Morning Report

Baltimore hit 100ºF yesterday for the second time this summer. The latest numbers for BWI also show 17 days at or above 90ºF. Today we will add another to the list, but the humidity will be down a notch to make it a little more tolerable.

The heat will remain as we increase the humidity during the week. This is thanks in part to the inland push of Beryl and may bring welcome rain from thunderstorms to our region for many days. Here is a brief look at the system with the full analysis and forecast below.

Tropical Storm Beryl

While still holding with winds of 60 mph, the satellite is looking more organized. The wind field reaches out 125 miles.

Rain has reached Texas, totaling between 5 and 15 inches. The Storm Surge may reach up to 6 feet near the eye at landfall. This is the same area that Alberto affected a few weeks ago AND has been subjected to flooding rains for months.

More on this storm below.

Today’s Weather

Hot but not as humid today. Some added cloud cover may help early on.

Relief will be slow and trade-off with more storms during the week. As Beryl makes landfall on the Texas coast Monday, some of that moisture may influence our weather in the week ahead.

Tropical Storm Beryl

There has not been much change since yesterday, but the satellite is starting to show more organization. As the circulation improves, Beryl is forecast to regain Hurricane intensity before making landfall on the Southeast Texas Coast tomorrow. It may reach winds up to 85 mph, making it a Category 1 storm.

It will move inland through Texas and up the Mississippi River Valley, and towards the Great Lakes. The widespread impact will increase tropical moisture across the Eastern US all week ahead.

RESTATING MY MESSAGE ABOUT DYSLEXIA

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 while writing and to 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. #FITF
