August 1

At first glance, there is nothing out of the ordinary as we begin August. It will be hot and more humid. No big deal, right? The risk of showers is low, but the HRRR model is insisting that a Bay Breeze might develop over Baltimore to produce an afternoon storm. I want to show this, but please understand that I don’t expect this to be precise, rather a general idea that something will develop for a few hours. The exact location might be slightly different, but perhaps around the beltway.

High Temperatures:

Most of our region will be in the upper 80s to near 90ºF

 

More Storms Building To Finish The Week

Notice the focus appears to be in typical areas along the hills and front ridge north and west of Baltimore. Often the terrain helps enhance showers there while near and south of I-95 has to wait for more of a focus or trigger a few days later.

Temperatures will be climbing into the lower 90s, and then we get a break from the heat and humidity for the weekend. 

 

 

Tropical Depression Emily

This storm was ramping up and overachieved in Florida yesterday with flooding rain and tornadoes. There are 31 counties under a State of Emergency.

Today, winds are down to 30 mph as it moves off of the east coast into the Atlantic. Not more threat to land, but the rip currents will be a nuisance to beach goers all the way up to North Carolina.
