Thursday Weather Overview

Well, the storm off the Mid Atlantic coast is still stalled.


Most of the significant rain activity is north of the storm center. A high pressure ridge over the northeast U.S. has more or less prevented the storm and its’ rain from moving very much so rainfall over the Baltimore-Washington area has been spotty and the weather has actually been fairly decent.


Rainfall has been pushing westward onto the DELMARVA Peninsula Thursday evening and the trend is expected to continue. Areas east of the Bay, including northeast Maryland could receive up to one inch of rain in the next 24 hours. West of Baltimore, however, rain totals may amount to one half inch or less.

qpfA bulls-eye for up to three inches of rain is forecast for parts of New Jersey.


The beautiful satellite image above show the active weather over the Atlantic Ocean Thursday evening. Two non-tropical storms are churning in the western Atlantic. One is the storm off the Mid Atlantic Coast and the other is a disorganized cluster of storms reaching north from Cuba. In the eastern Atlantic, Hurricane Fred continues to spin 740 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. Fred’s winds have weakened to 90 mph and the storm is expected to stay out at sea.
