Wednesday December 19 2018
We have another Flood Watch in place for most of our region for yet another end of work week event. This round of rain will be heavy at times and add up between 1 and 3 inches and likely bring Baltimore’s epic year to over 70 inches. The rain will arrive late morning and early afternoon on Thursday. The heaviest rain will be overnight Thursday, but another round of heavy rain and possibly thunder on Friday will come with a brief surge of warm air into the lower 60s.
A Flood Watch these days means more than just high water on prone streams, river, and around the Chesapeake Bay. It also applies to the soggy soil that could once again lead to some trees falling over. We have had 24 events this year over 1″. Of these, 14 events over 2″ rain. Of those, 4 events over 4″ of rain. See the break down below.

Showers will develop late morning and mid day, then steady rain in the afternoon and evening. The heaviest rain will arrive overnight after midnight.
Friday Rain Timeline —> simulation slider
Heavy rain will fall between midnight and sunrise, with another round in the afternoon. This may shift to Delmarva, while showers linger over central Maryland and PA.

Snow Day Kit
Our ritual the night before a storm is finally in one kit. Maybe if more Maryland kids had this, the storm would reach us 🙂
- This includes a very soft raglan Tee printed inside out with #FITF AND the check list, #FITF spoon for under your pillow, ice cube tray with snowflake shapes, chalk, a #FITF wrist-band, a mini SnowStix, and a bag to carry it all in.
- New Orders are likely to be delivered after the holiday.
- This will also help us give a free Snow Day Kit to each of the Just In Power Kids.
FITF and SnowStix Stores are now OPEN
