Friday March 22 2019
The Noreaster is moving away this morning but it definitely overachieved. Most of our area received between 2 and 3 inches of rain, with some spots even higher. We have a Flood Warning and Wind Advisory behind this storm. There will be more rain, perhaps with mixed snow or ice pellets this afternoon. Temperatures should remain nearly steady in the 40s to near 50ºFm but it will feel chilly with the winds. But first, here is a look at the radar loop.
4 Hour Radar Loop Ending At 6 AM
The movement has slowed and still dumping on Delmarva. The last of the rain should be moving out between 8 and 10 AM.
Morning Surface Weather
The Low Pressure is slowly moving to the Northeast this morning. A cold front will help ignite strong showers and maybe some low based storms this afternoon. See that rain timeline below.
Flood Warning and Wind Advisory
Just about every waterway in central Maryland is under a Flood Warning, at least for the immediate banks overflowing. But large ponding on roads with poor drainage is also an issue. A Wind Advisory is also in place from Carroll County westward. Winds may gust to 50 mph. While the advisory does not include bay areas, there are wind restrictions on the bridges this morning.

There may not be lighting and thunder, but a cluster of heavy showers will develop and drop locally heavy rain. Some may mix with snowflakes and or small hail. This is due to the low base of the freezing level. Ground temps will be too warm for a problem, but this may result in drivers needing to pull over to let it pass.
Radar Simulation –> slider
Temps will be in the lower 40s, so too warm for anything that may be frozen to stick. Note that intense showers may coat the ground briefly.
This weekend will be better with more sun and a slight warm up.
Clouds will increase later Sunday with the next event bringing rain Monday… This still may end with some snow mixed in Tuesday morning.
Rain Monday May End With Brief Snow Tuesday Morning
This still is not expected to accumulate, but worth mentioning so you are not surprised if you see it.
