Monday’s Record Rainfall

The record rainfall in Baltimore on September 15 is 3.20 inches. On that date a tropical storm passed to the south and east of Baltimore. Names were not assigned to storms in those days. This storm made landfall in South Carolina as a hurricane and then turned to the northeast, crossing southeast Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay and the DELMARVA Peninsula as a tropical storm. It weakened to a tropical depression as it moved across the New Jersey shore.
