Wednesday March 24 2021

Finally! We got a storm to live up to computer model projections, but that also resulted in record rainfall across the region. This was only the third day with measurable rain this month, and it made up for lost time. Today’s rainfall in Baltimore nearly doubled what we had so far for the month (0.82″)

Record rainfall included:

  • Baltimore at BWI = 1.52”
  • Washington at Regan National = 1.68”


Doppler Radar Digital Rain Totals

This is the digital interpretation of the rainfall, but some local reports were actually higher. There were some minor flooding reports as well.

Thick Fog

If you were driving after the rain ended, you may have seen the fog developing. There is no push to move the moisture out until Thursday, so the low clouds will thicken.

Dense Fog will dominate the morning, and some advisories might be issued. Plan for slow travel Thursday morning.

Severe Storms Thursday: The Avocado Map

The dynamics have increased for a large tornado outbreak in the Deep South. Multiple supercells and long track tornadoes, as well as large hail producing storms are likely across Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee.

There has also been a slight shift bringing in some shower for us by evening.

Local High Temperatures 

We should have the 70s push in, but it depends on a few factors:

  • When the fog lifts and clears.
  • Wind Direction: It will be noticeably cooler by the Bay water.
