Monday September 17 2018

Florence is no longer a tropical storm, and the National Hurricane Center has stopped issuing advisories. But the remnant Low will bring us some rain today and tomorrow. The core of the storm and heavy rain will be just west of the big cities with the potential for 1 to 3 inches of rain. Light rain moves in this morning, then we increased the threat of storms this afternoon into Tuesday. Some may be heavy, but they will be spotty.

Considering the wet summer and soggy soil, our flood potential is similar to what we have already experienced, so that should limit the anxiety of this former hurricane.  The outlook shows a big pattern change that will make it feel much more like autumn next week as temperatures will drop.  But we have a few more muggy, wet days first. Here’s a look:


Rain Potential 

The heaviest rain will bee inland from I-95 with 1 to 3 inches. The most will be in the mountains. The big cities to Delmarva expect a general 0.5″ to 1.0″. Any individual heavy cell could boost that.
