Additional Rain But Still Short

Scattered storms moved across the area on Thursday but the numbers still come short of average and the region is still under various degress of drought status.

As of 5:00pm Thursday, BWI-Marshall is .52 inches below average for precipitation in August, 2.29 inches below average since June 1 and 4.97 inches short for the year. Below is a map showing the drought situation across Maryland as of August 9.

Additional rain is in the forecast for Friday and early next week but as is usual for summertime rain systems the results will probably be scattered in nature. The area is really in need of remnants from a tropical weather system and activity is very limited right now.
