This is NOT Hurricane Joaquin hitting the Mid Atlantic. That storm is more than 1000 miles away and now on the move away from the Bahamas into the central Atlantic. More on that in another post. But locally you might be interested in your Saturday weather. The Orioles are hosting the Yankees for the last series of the regular season. Friday’s game was postponed, and they need to get these in for the Wild Card race. So if you go today, plan on a cool wet day. There may be delays, but I think they will try at all costs to play. However many other events have been cancelled this weekend.
All this storm talk, we shouldn’t overlook that Friday brought over 1 inch of rain to many places. Baltimore’s BWI recorded 0.96″ by midnight. The high temperate of 56F was 16 degrees below normal. That pre season chill might be the main story, if not for the otter impacts on the Chesapeake Bay. I posted a weekend water animation you can check here.
The purpose of this post is the rain. It looks looks like the main steady rain is moving inland to the mountains. But the steady flow from the east will keep us chill, damp, and showers will be on and off most of the day. Here is the HRRR Model radar simulation though evening. The worst of the heavy rain for us is done, but it will still rain. Steadiest rain will be in southern Maryland.
