Saturday Rain Progress

Significant rains and potential flooding have been threatening all day Saturday. As of early evening, the heaviest rains have skipped around the Baltimore area … for the most part.

radsattotjThe map above shows the radar rain estimate for Friday and Saturday from the Dover AFB Weather Radar. Most of the significant rain today has been south of Baltimore. On Friday, one storm cell laid down a band of 4-5 inch rains in parts of Frederick, Montgomery, Howard and Carroll counties. That particular cell also showed tornadic wind rotation up in the cloud but no tornado damage was confirmed on the ground.

Hurricane Bill is starting to turn to a more north to northeast trajectory and as the storm pulls away, a couple of cool fronts in the region will be able to move through and allow drier air to filter in.
