Friday February 22 2019
Temperatures this morning are mild as we are on the edge of the next weather system. Rain is falling in southern Maryland. While it will stay south today, it will move in to our area on Saturday. This will develop during the afternoon and spread across our entire region Saturday night and into Sunday.
This storm will bring us up to 1 inch of rain, which on top snow melt and soggy ground will make from some flooding. It will also warm us into the 60s on Sunday. But that comes with the price tag of strong winds…which could reach the 50 to 60 mph range.
Many waking up with temps in the 40s. Rain is falling south of Washington through southern Maryland and Virginia.
