Wednesday August 5 2020

This quick evening weather update is for the changes on the way. We had a really nice break today after the tropical storm left the region, but tomorrow you may wake up to rain.

Next up is a slow moving wave of energy in the atmosphere that has already sparked thunderstorms to our south. We can see that on radar this evening. We should see that spread across the Mid Atlantic Thursday morning and linger into Friday. The weekend is looking good.

New Look

Here’s a quick view of the rain on the way. You may also notice a new look to this site.  We continue to make upgrades and improvements. See the new local interactive weather pages below the rain total map.  I’d love to hear what you think so far.

Evening Radar Loop




There will be a combination of weak Low pressure to our south and High Pressure to our north helping to funnel moist, unstable air our way all day.

In the afternoon, there may be an area over Delmarva with slow moving storms than can produce locally heavy rain.

Two more streams of storms (north and south) are expected.
