Friday Soaker

The storm off the Mid Atlantic coast finally pushed close enough to the coast to generate some significant rain across the area.


The image above is the radar rainfall estimate from the Sterling, VA radar.


The late afternoon satellite image shows the storm spinning slowly toward New England. The image below shows the late afternoon surface conditions.


As the storm pulls away Saturday, a disturbance rotating around its’ southwest quadrant may stir up some spotty shower activity over Maryland but, by and large, the day should be dry. The weekend should be capped off Sunday with some nearly perfect late summer weather.

In the eastern Atlantic, Fred has been downgraded to a tropical storm and is forecast to continue the weakening trend.


Southeast of Fred a new tropical wave is coming off the west African coast and has a small chance for further tropical development.
