A front has managed to settle into the mid-Atlantic region early Monday morning.
This boundary, which is probably going to stall not too far to the south of Baltimore at some point Monday afternoon or early in the evening, is going to be the focal point of multiple showers and thunderstorms over the next few days.
And we’ve already seen early Monday morning that these showers and heavier thunderstorms have been capable of producing flooding (a flood warning was in effect for Frederick County as of this writing, and it runs through 5:45 a.m. — watch for a possible extension of this warning!)
There are always “pros” and “cons” to being in a pattern like this: with the front located nearby, but the Greater Baltimore Area being in a position north of it, there will be RELIEF FROM THE OPPRESSIVE HEAT that we encountered
over the weekend.
Temperatures, in fact, should be no higher than the 80s here for the next several days… But we must also deal with the possibility of there being some measurable rain for four or five days in a row.
In relatively small doses, that’s fine — but any of these thunderstorms that develop over the next few days could lead to some flooding.
Have a good day!
