Thursday October 5

Today is the Full Harvest Moon. Parents, teachers, and first responders… good luck!  The weather will be another step back to late summer as we aim of the 80s. The next few days will also reach the 80s as a cold front skirts just north but can not pass through. A few showers could reach the northern and western suburbs, but not much luck getting past the mountains this evening. Some drops could reach as close as Carroll, Baltimore, and York Counties by sunset.

The next hope for rain will arrive Sunday, and continue onto next week as we track a possible tropical system that is trying to form in the western Caribbean. We expect Tropical Storm Nate will get named today or tomorrow and heavy for the Gulf Coast this weekend.  Then reach us by Tuesday next week. Rain will spread ahead of it and could linger after it passes… but the track is still uncertain so how much water we get is still ‘up in the air’.
