Wednesday 24 2021

This will be a rare rainy day for us this month. After a very busy winter, Baltimore’s BWI only has had two other days this month with measurable rain.  Today will be number THREE: Compare the live radar to the hourly rain timeline forecast maps is below. The heaviest rain will arrive in the afternoon, with a second push later on Delmarva.

The weather map this morning shows the system we have now, but the next one will be the severe storm catalyst for the Deep South, which is what will pump in our warm up tomorrow and. Friday. 

Morning Surface Weather

The large circulation is well to our west, but the trailing cold front is the rain we get today. It will actually be warmer behind this front, because of the next storm racing in behind it.
