The moderate to heavy rain will be with us for the next few hours. The good thing is that it appears to be moving a little faster, so it might be out of here earlier this evening. But during this afternoon commute or plans for dinner or leaving town for the weekend will have to contend with what we know the rain will do: Slow down traffic. There is a chance for some area flooding in the downpours. Any risk of these turning severe might be on Delmarva where the temps are a bit warmer:


Temperatures at 2 PM

  • 30s in western Maryland
  • Mid 40s to mid 50s across central areas
  • Ocean City in the lower 60s
