We have had clouds for days, but the rainfall deficit continues to grow because there hasn’t been much rain with the clouds. That deficit hit 5″ for the year Monday and even .68″ already for this very young month. The average rainfall is around .11″-.13″ per day this time of year.
The first part of a two-part storm is finally changing up the days of clouds with some rain. A band of rain moved across the state Tuesday afternoon, breaking up along the way. Even though rainfall amounts are light, it’s something. We will continue to see scattered showers through the evening and then some rain or maybe even a thunderstorm overnight.
The second part of the storm moves our way Wednesday into early Thursday morning. That part will keep some rain and maybe thunderstorms in Maryland until it clears us. In any thunderstorm, there will be a good dose of rain. Otherwise, we hope to get something measurable out of this – maybe .25-.50.”
The stormy weather moves away Thursday. However, morning sunshine will give way to building clouds and maybe an isolated shower. It will be breezy and cooler with highs in the upper 60s/near 70 degrees. The dry weather will give us more sunshine on Friday and Saturday before a new storm moves our way late in the weekend.
Right now it looks like clouds will be on the increase Sunday and just the CHANCE for a late shower. We will keep you posted.
