Wednesday September 5 2018

The Heat Advisory issued today has a focus on Southern Pennsylvania, but I would consider central Maryland under the same conditions as yesterday. It will not be comfortable and Baltimore County and City both have schools impacted. But the end is in sight as a cold front will reach us this weekend.

Simply put, it will get cooler this weekend. The complicated thing is trying to determine if the cold front will stall and keep us rainy or keep moving through. At this point, the easy call is to go with the stalling solution, which means the risk of rain will continue all weekend and early next week.  Ironically the high temperatures may be lower than some thermometers are reading this morning.

Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall between Mississippi and Alabama overnight. That will curve inland and may eventually bring us rain along the old front.  That plus watching Hurricane Florence that could get close off the east coast next week will all help to change the patter and bring in much cooler weather soon.

Animations Looking Ahead:

Rain with the cold front will provide the chance of rain Thursday evening through early next week. This is based on the front stalling and some moisture from Gordon being injected in


Wider View Forecast

Rainfall Potential

Heavy rain at time from the stalling front and perhaps some moisture from Gordon mixing in. Most of that will stay to our west and north.


Long Range Animation

Watch beyond this weekend and see Hurricane Florence possibly west of Bermuda and close to the east coast. I do not expect landfall from this, but it will be a player in rip currents and could be an adjustment of the east coast pattern for the next season ahead…
