Monday September 24 2018
It’s just wet! This morning starts with drizzle and fog for many areas with a northeasterly wind that will increase today. While the pockets of rain are scattered early, we all get back into the steady rain during the day and afternoon. This may seem like nothing new, and you might be wondering about records. After the second most rainy summer (June through August), we may have a chance to challenge the wettest September… but it will be a stretch. As of this morning, Baltimore has had 7.27″ of rain this month. The record was set in 2011 with 13.32″. We need 6.05″ of rain to fall this week to hit that mark and have 7 days to get there.
Another area of Low Pressure will move north and increase the steady rain mid day through this evening from south to north. We have more steady rain likely on Tuesday, then Wednesday we get a break in the morning to warm up, but a round of stronger storms in the afternoon. The pattern doesn’t seem to break until Friday afternoon and the weekend. Just hang on a little longer and we should see an improvement. At least October is looking to start dry.
