Friday May 12 – The water vapor satellite loop tells the story. A large storm system is spreading our way, even though the upper Low is diving southeast into Arkansas. The compilation of radar simulations below is as much for my personal need to know as for your events. Rain is on the way this evening and if you live south or west of Baltimore you will get it first. The north side may stay dry until after sunset.

My oldest son has a baseball game this evening, and my youngest has one tomorrow morning. So dealing with rain while watching is different than it being canceled. Tonight’s game will get in, but tomorrow morning is sketchy. That goes for your plans as well. Morning races tomorrow will be windy and wet, in addition to chilly.  The Flower Festival in Westminster was moved back to allow for the heavy rain to depart, but it will remain chilly and damp through lunch time. Before showing the timelines below, I should also add that chill. Temps will remain in the upper 40s to lower 50s through Saturday. Mother’s Day will see an improvement, and yes we are still aiming for close to 90ºF… by the end of next week.

Friday Night – Saturday Morning

Heavier rain will arrive after midnight

Rain will be heavy around sunrise, then taper off as the storm pulls away. Showers and drizzle will linger north of Rt 50 through noon. Some improvement later, but it will remain windy and chilly.
