Weather Forecast:

Morning rain in metro areas is already strong than our best model guidance. But here is a simulation to show the shift to the east this afternoon. This could be stormy at the beaches.

The NAM 3 Km model once again was underplaying the morning rain, but is the best guidance we have. So the storms this afternoon on Delmarva and the beaches could be stronger than shown here.
