Thursday August 10
We start today quiet and cool and sunshine will eventually fade behind late day clouds. Temperatures will end up comfortably warm. The humidity will be building into the weekend and the next storm will move in late Friday. Afternoon storms will build in the mountains and move to metro Baltimore after dark and overnight. Then the weekend should improve for the mountains but could remain wet at the beaches.
Perseid Metro Shower: Sadly the cloud cover will block us form the peak showing Friday night.
As for the tropics… The weather pattern should protect us should anything develop. See more below.
Friday Rain And Storms
Storms develop in the mountains during the afternoon and will spread across metro Baltimore after dark and overnight. Note that rain will arrive sooner west and north of Baltimore. If you live near or south of I-95, the storms should arrive after midnight.
Rain Over The Weekend
Shift of the focus east of the Bay and over the beaches
Like we need more rain? The potential is between .25 and 1.00 inches. That would depend on the track of track of individual cells.
This stalled front into early next week should protect the Mid Atlantic from any developing tropical system.
There is a 40% chance of something developing over the next 5 days, according to the National Hurricane Center. There is a separate area over the Bahamas worth watching. Meanwhile the first hurricane of the season is already downgraded to tropical storm. Franklin is onshore in central Mexico
No heat in sight! Temps appear to stay cooler than average through next week

Get the award winning Kid Weather App I made with my oldest son and support our love for science, weather, and technology. Our 3 year anniversary of the release and our contribution to STEM education is this November. It has been downloaded in 60 countries, and works in both temperature scales. With your support we can expand on the fun introduction to science and real weather.
Maryland Trek 2017
On Sunday August 13 my team will join me for my 4th 329 mile hike and bike across Maryland. We will start on the summit of Wisp and do a minimum of 41 miles each day. The weather always is a factor so I will begin to focus on our route each day. At this point, the threat of rain may be with us through early next week, but statewide we should be quiet and cool next Wednesday through Friday. Those are the days we travel from Frederick through central Maryland and then on to the Eastern Shore and finish in Ocean City on Saturday August 19.
Donations now being accepted. Please select “Cool Kids Campaign” in the options to add to our entire team’s total.
Milestones this year:
- I will do my 1000th mile on Day 1 in Garrett County
- We aim to reach $100,000 for Cool Kids Campaign for the entire event.
Faith in the Flakes
The store is closing for the season. Next week we wil be shifting back to spring mode. This will include a severe weather STEM assembly program.
