Well, summer certainly feels like it’s over! It was a little cloudier and thus cooler than I thought it would be today. But that is how weather forecasting goes. But not all is lost.
Showers on tap for tonight (up to .50” at most … radar not very impressive. Notice not based on models, but on observation). Tuesday and most of Wednesday looks pretty nice. But Thu and Fri wet as system stalls over us and gives us a soaking rain. Am very glad I inserted the rain chances previously. I was correct in assessing the threat of rain for the end of the week into the weekend: like I said, not all is lost in the forecast.
Some notes on this Stalling System: Since it will be slow moving, there is potential for some areas to get a lot of rain as showers train over the same area repeatedly. I am not sure where this will set up, but so you know we are in the target zone. I believe this zone is centered around Maryland to central Pennsylvania. I will hone in on this more by Wednesday evening. I expect a solid 1-2" for everyone at this time. More details to come.
This coming weekend looks like a toss-up: Not a washout, but not totally dry either. Lots of clouds, but some sun too. It will be warmer Sat and Sun also. So a decent weekend is in store.
Temperature during the daytime will be around seasonal for the last week in September, but be mild at night for Wed – Fri nights.
As we head into next week we are likely to be watching some kind of tropical storm/hurricane in the Caribbean Sea. This will have to be watched very carefully for impacts in the eastern US and our area more specifically. Stay tuned.
