High pressure is still dominating our weather pattern, and will for a few more days. The one difference is that it is slowly drifting off to the east of us.
Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue until the remnant center of Isaac clears us later this week.
Sunday proves to be one of the wettest days of 2012 after several parts of Maryland experience five to six inches of rain.
Once again, the storm moved quicker than we thought. Like Saturday, Sunday’s storm was moving at a faster pace than expected. This time, it brought the rain in quicker. We thought this rain would hold off until Sunday evening, but it obviously overspread the state earlier in the afternoon.
The front got out of here earlier than expected, and we all benefited. Showers lingered into the early morning hours for Baltimore, but moved away for sunrise. Even along the Eastern Shore, the morning showers cleared pretty quickly.
A weakening front is moving across Maryland Friday night. Showers and thunderstorms are scattered along this front and very slowly spreading to the east.
A break today, but another round of thunderstorms and showers is on the way. A new front is pounding the Midwest from Indiana to Missouri with strong thunderstorms.
The last of the short waves associated with the upper trough that has been ever so slowly inching toward the area will move across the area Wednesday afternoon. It will bring a good deal of clouds along with a couple of showers and a
thunderstorm. Mainly in areas east of I-95 there is potential for severe storms and flooding downpours Wednesday afternoon and early evening. Then the whole shebang finally moves away overnight and we get into a settled pattern for the better part of a couple of days.
The combination of strong daytime heating and a gradual cooling aloft from an approaching upper level system is setting the stage for the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms late Tuesday afternoon into the first part of the evening.
The front that started to move into Maryland Thursday, is finally gone.
What a difference! The front that moved into Maryland yesterday has slowed down significantly, and is still draped along I-95 this evening.
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect from Frederick County east to the Atlantic through 9 PM. Numerous severe thunderstorm warnings are following the strong line of thunderstorms as it crosses the state.
