Dry Streak Passes 3 Weeks

The last time the rain gauge at the National Weather Service’s BWI-Marshall weather station recorded more than a trace of precipitation was more than three weeks ago, back on September 15th, and that was just .02″. Without rain today we will have recorded 23 straight days without measurable precipitation. Another week of dry weather would put us near the record for dry spells in Baltimore which dates back to September and October of 1963. From September 30, 1963 through October 31, 1963, a stretch of 32 days, no measurable rain fell at BWI. We have two chances to end the dry weather this week. The first is a chance for a few showers as a front moves through Tuesday night. The second chance comes as an area of low pressure in the middle levels of the atmosphere drops from northern Michigan Wednesday morning into the mid Atlantic states on Friday. These weather systems not only bring us a chance of rain, they are expected to drop temperatures back to near normal levels by next weekend.
