A large ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the weather across the Eastern Region. This has resulted in some unseasonably warm weather, which will continue today. Most temperatures should climb into the mid-80s this afternoon, except in some of the highest terrain.
Heavy rain cripples parts of Maryland once again, stranding people on the roads. On Pulaski Highway, the water rose so quickly that a car became almost totally immersed. Emergency crews made a number of swift water rescues in both Baltimore and Harford counties. But there are no reports of injuries so far.
Firefighters were among those who had to be rescued Wednesday as storms flooded roads, trapping cars in rushing water and filling basements in a region still cleaning up from Hurricane Irene less than two weeks ago.

Another day but the same storm. Today, the center of the storm has drifted down into the Carolinas. That has kicked up our winds a bit and forced them around to the east. This easterly wind is keeping temperatures down a few degrees from yesterday while creating a huge moisture connection with the Atlantic. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are being pulled into and across the state already and will continue tonight into tomorrow morning.
We’re expecting a much more unsettled, wetter weather pattern over the next several days.
Concern remains that it does not rain until mid-morning Friday and that it may stay damp through at least part of the day Saturday.
Clouds have taken over and rain is moving through. This is just the beginning of a series of storms that will keep clouds, some rain, and cool air around right into the weekend.
The weather is quite active today as a major storm system will be affecting the eastern third of the United States.
While it won’t be as cold as Thursday was, the sky won’t be as “blue and pristene” as it was yesterday, either. Most temperatures will be in the upper 40s this afternoon.
