Monday July 23 2018

We are stuck in the thick of it.  What is it? The humidity you may feel this morning as temperatures are in the 70s to near 80ºF already. Also this incredibly moist and persistent pattern pushing more ‘stuff’ our way for the near future. Our fate will likely bring more flooding and all I can suggest is NEVER try to drive through high water. One friend of mine lost his car over the weekend.

This past weekend produced between 3 to 7 inches of rain across our region. That would be enough, but there will be more and similar to what we have seen. Clusters of heavy rain, some with dangerous lightning and isolated cells that may spin up a weak tornado. Below is a look at this morning’s satellite, radar, and simulation. Plus the animation for the week that remains soggy.

The focus today may shift a little to the west. There is a glimmer of hope for a break in the pattern by the end of the week and part of next weekend. But we are in this set up next week as well.


  • A Flood Watch means we might have high water develop.
  • A Flood Warning means the high water is happening now.
  • Flash Flood means it is rising fast vs the coastal flooding which is high water along the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic beaches.
