8 AM Monday October 9

The heaviest of the rain is now on our region. The remains of Nate are passing to our northwest keeping us on the warm and windy side.  The heaviest batch of rain will move away this morning, but we will have some lingering showers and maybe a thunderstorm this afternoon. Winds are sustained at 20 mph, but gusts can still reach 40 mph. The forward speed is an amazing 60 mph to the northeast. So, this is a quick moving system but the overall pattern is a fast mover. We will get another round of beneficial rain mid week. More on that below.

Temps remain warm and muggy, but it was Sunday that produced a record warm low temperature. As I mentioned yesterday, the coolest temperature measured at Baltimore’w BWI was 74ºF, which is 5 degrees warmer than the normal high.  That was the warmest low temperature on October 8th since 1922. The warmest low temperature for the month of October was 77ºF on October 6 in 1941.  Nearby airports in Washington also set records.
