Friday April 12 2019

If you like the rain and missed it, well, it’s back. I am writing this report as I sit under cover on a deck in Sykesville, Maryland watching the rain fall. It’s like welcoming back an old friend, or at least someone you are familiar with, then realize why you stopped talking.  But at least the view is nice. I do love this sport because the part on the left side is the exact half way point of my Maryland Trek. Last August our team planted flowers and a plaque for Just In Power Kids there.


The rain today just opened the door for more. There will be some breaks and a few more spotty showers. But the next wave overnight will be more impressive. This is like to include some embedded thunderstorms. So there is a chance you hear some rumbles of thunder. See the timeline sliders below for more.


Let’s take at look at the current weather. Here was the Doppler Radar view at 2 PM when I was writing this report. It’s important to note the the model I am showing is already wrong, but it still have value.

The image of the rain band over here in Sykesville and heavier rain in yellow over northern Baltimore and Towson is moving to the northeast. That is up I-95 towards Bel Air, Havre de Grace, and Elkton.

But the NAM 3 Km Model I am about to show you is off by at lest 1 hour. That is the error, showing the rain forecast at 2 PM in the first image lagging behind what was verified. Otherwise, it is doing the best job showing the event. That is why I wanted to use it here.

Rain Timeline Saturday —> slider

Notice the heavier rain developing tonight. There are two sliders below. The second Ione picks up at midnight and goes through noon Saturday. While there may be some boomers between midnight and daybreak, the bulk of the rain does appear to move far enough east and south to bring central Maryland a dry window for much of Saturday. The low Eastern Shore of Maryland may not be so lucky.

I will have more on the second round of heavier rain later Sunday into Monday in my next report.
