WEATHER BLOG: Drying Out
We tied a single day record for rain at BWI Marshall with 3.06 inches. The record was previously set back in 1947.
Thursday, there can be some lingering showers/sprinkles, followed by several dry hours later into the afternoon. A cool front remains hung up just to the west (across east central Pennslyvania) and its slow progression will allow temperatures to warm into the 70s out ahead of it, with dew points near 60 in many cases. The cool front will slide to the east later Thursday afternoon as it is forced eastward by an approaching upper level low, thus, we’ll continue to cover for a spotty shower/thunderstorm later this p.m.
Beyond the front, there will be a dry push, as we’ve been noting over the past couple of days. Friday looks decent with a drier, but occasionally gusty, west-southwesterly wind. Another upper low will dig into the Ohio Valley Friday night and advance eastward during the day on Saturday into Saturday night. There can be a spotty shower associated with this feature, though most should be contained to the typical higher spots to the west.
