Friday September 7 2018

The heat wave is over but some will hang on to a warm day but a noticeable change is spreading in.  Showers will rebuild later this afternoon and evening which can be locally heavy. Then we get stuck with a wet weekend. So outdoor events will have to deal with more rain than they hoped… and the rain will be more persistent near and north of Baltimore, more spotty south.

With the rain and shift of the wind from the east, temperatures will drop dramatically. It will feel chilly as afternoons will be in the 60s. Ravens game tailgating and the start might actually be in the 50s, so plan to wear a comfortable hoodie. It looks like rain will be back in that morning and through the game. So maybe a water proof jacket as well.

Florence has weakened to a tropical storm, but it expected to become a major hurricane again. IF we get any influence from it, the timing will be Wednesday night into Friday. But the latest modeling supports the storm stalling and looping off of the coast.

This GFS solution now shows Florence stalling and looping off of the east coast. To be honest, no one knows for sure what this storm will do, so its a waiting gain.
