Wet And Getting Wetter

Some areas across the region got a good soaking on Monday.

The map above show rain total for Monday from various reports received by the National Weather Service.

The pattern really doesn’t change that much over the next several days as tropical moisture will continue to be channeled northward from the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

A new twist is the development of Tropical Depression 16 in the western Caribbean. If strengthening continues as expected the storm will become Nicole.

The storm is forecast to reach marginal tropical storm strength and track across western Cuba and southeast Florida and then losing any well defined identity as it approaches the South Carolina coast. The remnant of the storm is expected to continue northward and carry a significant plume of tropical moisture to the Chesapeake Bay region.

The forecast map above shows the rain total outlook along the eastern seaboard through Friday morning. The heaviest rains locally will be most likely fall Wednesday night and Thursday.

Don’t put your umbrella away.
