Mixed Rain Results

The month of May has seen some wide swings in temperatures and mixed results for rainfall.

In general, the region has come up a little short in the rain category despite the recent run of unsettled weather. An exception to the dry conditions is an area of recently heavy rainfall just west of Baltimore.

A narrow band of recurring rain over the Friday-Sunday time frame has produced some rain totals in excess of  2 inches. The map above is a generalization and is based on rainfall estimates from the National Weather Service Doppler Radar installation at Sterling, VA.

It is evident that most of the Baltimore mtero area was left out of the generous rain. The result, continued below average precipitation for the month and year at the area’s official weather recording station.

It should be noted that significant rainfall is not in the forecast for the next week or so.
