Rain On a Few Lawns And Gardens

Although they brought some unwelcome wind gusts and hail as well, thunderstorms in the area this evening managed to produce some substantial rain in a few spots. A report from Crumpton on the eastern shore indicated 2.5″ of rain fell in that town. Radar estimates of rainfall at 8:00 p.m. indicated an inch or more of rain fell in many areas south of Crumpton through Queen Anne’s, Talbot and Dorchester Counties. Radar also indicated over an inch of rain in a small area of extreme northern Baltimore County near the Pennsylvania line. Andrew’s Air Force base south of D.C. measured .96″, but here at our weather station in northwest Baltimore we had just .02″ and most of the major National Weather Service reporting stations did not record much rain either:

BWI-Marshall: Trace
Naval Academy, Annapolis: .19″
Reagan National: .14″
Dulles: .18″

We have a chance for more beneficial rains from scattered thunderstorms Wednesday before high pressure settles in with a stretch of mainly dry weather going into the weekend.
