More Wet Weather

Another big rainmaker is on the way.

The mid-day Wednesday satellite image shows the storm complex that covers the eastern half of the country.

Low pressure areas headed for the Great Lakes will be responsible for pulling huge amounts of Gulf and Atlantic moisture into the Mid Atlantic region over the next 48 hours. The potential rainfall totals may be higher than those recorded last Sunday.

The ground is saturated from recent rain and snow so the runoff from this developing storm may result in flooding. Flood Watches are in effect across the area. Gusty east to southeast winds will likely pile water up along the western shore of the Bay, resulting in unusually high tides. Creeks, streams and rivers that drain into the Bay may back up as well.

Stay dry.
