Drying Out

If you have been working in the garden or have played a game of golf recently you may have noticed that the ground is beginning to dry out. It has been a while since the area has received a significant rain.

The last heavy rain event was on June 18 when 1.77 inches of rain fell at BWI-Marshall airport. Since then rain has been infrequent and on the light side.

  • June 20   .32 inches
  • June 30   .11 inches
  • July 1     .37 inches

The weather pattern for this week positions the wettest weather to the north and south of the Mid Atlantic region. If any rain falls over Maryland it is likely to be spotty and light.
