WEATHER BLOG: Get On The Ark
The movie “Noah” came out this weekend. Coincidence…maybe not.
Locally heavy rain will redevelop during the mid-to-late morning as a low centered over the DelMarVa slowly tracks northeastward. A stationary boundary, connected to the storm on its northern side, will prevent the storm from making a swift exit off the eastern seaboard. Thus, rain will continue for much of the day today, adding to these totals.
Through AM Sunday:
Baltimore (BWI-Marshall): 1.11 inches
Baltimore (Downtown): 1.20 inches
Dulles: 0.95 inches
Reagan Ntl: 1.07 inches
An additional 0.50-1.00 inch of rain is expected today through tonight. As the low continues to churn today into tonight, some gusty winds will also develop; 10-20 mph sustained with gusts to 30 mph. The steadiest precipitation will likely become more localized tonight as a band of heavy precipitation, caused by the separation of the warm conveyor belt (deformation band), sets up from Maryland through eastern PA, NY and into New England. Rain or drizzle will likely end shortly after midnight tonight. Better conditions expected by Monday afternoon as skies clear out and temperatures warm to seasonable levels as high pressure approaches from the west. A pretty spectacular day on Tuesday, probably the pick of the week, with a good deal of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
