The short term forecast remains quiet with a northwesterly flow and cooler air moving across the area.
High pressure over the coast of Nova Scotia will allow for southeast flow across the region today.
Other than clouds and a little spotty drizzle (mainly east) the coastal storm has pretty much been a non-event for our area.
A coastal area of low presure will be bringing showers to the region as early as this afternoon & evening and lasting through tomorrow.
With high pressure in place, the region will remain dry this afternoon.
Here we are… it is August 18th and so far we have not had one 90° day this month!
Yesterday we talked about the deluge that occurred in the Baltimore area.
It has been a day of wild weather to say the least! We had the perfect set-up today for heavy rain with a very juicy air mass along with high dewpoints and p-wat values.
We are enjoying a somewhat cooler day today, compared to the warmer temps of yesterday.
As promised… today turned out to be a very pleasant and comfortable day after a rather record breaking, chilly start.
After topping out below average for the past few days… we will be returning to more summer-like weather during the upcoming week.
Numerous reports came in from thunderstorm wind damage yesterday, which was expected due to the strength of the low level jet.
