Sunday February 11 2018

A Flood Watch is still in effect for much of our area today. Due to heavier rain on Delmarva there is a Flood Advisory, which to the north across Pennsylvania there has been less rain, but the push of warm air across higher terrain and colder ground has led to Dense Fog Advisory.  The same weather pattern is stuck over our region today with another push of Low Pressure to send another 1 inch or more of rain, but this will shift a little father north. There is a strong temperature gradient that will remain over our region, which is responsible for the energy in this storm. Heavy rain is being fed by a push of temperatures that will reach the mid 60s to near 70ºF even for Baltimore. But the chilly air may remain in southern Pennsylvania for York and Lancaster counties, one reason for the dens fog and advisory this morning.  The heavy rain will move a little farther north as well today.

Rain so far (until 7 AM)…

We can’t declare the drought over, but heavy rain has been measured across central and southern Maryland so far.  Baltimore’s BWI officially recorded 0.88″ up to midnight, and is over the 1 inch mark now. But Doppler Radar estimates over 2 inches of rain has already falling near Annapolis to the south and east through Delmarva. Centreville has had up to 2.5 inches of rain and in the heart of the Flood Advisory on the Eastern Shore. See the rain timeline and additional rain totals below.

This Morning

Warmer air is surging in from the south and already seen on the 7 AM temperature map. Compare the mid 40s in central Maryland to the mid 50s to the south. Salisbury reported 64ºF at the top of the hour. They should reach 70ºF today and so may Baltimore….

Look at the contrast right along the heavy rain path. Baltimore aims for the upper 60s to bear 70ºF, but Westminster to York and Lancaster should stay in the mid 50s.

Temperature Outlook

This model ensemble shows Baltimore into the upper 60s twice… We will feel a brief drop Tuesday, but no significant cold air for the next 10 days to 2 weeks. I still feel that early March will bring us another shot of cold air.
