Monday July 4 – The clouds are still covering the region and rain to our south will be moving in today. This is not what you want to see or hear, but worth paying attention to. First, 76 was the year of our independence, not what the high temperature is supposed to be. A typical July 4 would bring a high go 87°F, but we should remain more than 10 degrees below average. One interesting thing about the weather records in Baltimore one year and one day apart:
- Record Low on July 3 = 50°F in 2001
- Record High on July 4 = 100°F in 2002
The missing heat is not missing. It has reached the southern and western US and will be here this week. In a hurry. Back to the rain… This is what needs to pass before that hot air mass can reach us. Here is a quick look at the radar simulation for the rest of today. One thing to keep in mind: The rain will be advancing north and be with us this afternoon and evening, but may be a slow process. It looks like it will stay just south of Baltimore until mid afternoon. This will be a wet day at the beach while the mountains may be subjected to severe storms.
