Drying Out Today

Meteorologist Tiffany Savona did a great blog last night about the flooding and storms from yesterday.  So I’ll just do a quick update to do more on the forecast for today.  Yesterday a warm front and ample humidity helped to create a lot of the rain in the region.  It wasn’t everywhere though.  There was heavy rain over the Middle Peninisula, lower Eastern Shore, and southern Outer Banks.  However, places in between had much less.  Take a look:

Today a cold front is moving through the region from the west.  This may kick off an isolated shower this morning, but the window of opportunity is closing.

Even though there is a cold front moving through, we won’t really cool down today.  The sun will pop out (it has already).  So this will still allow temperatures to heat up to the mid 80s  The good news is that the dry air will gradually push in.  So we will go from dew points near 70 to dew points to near 60 by the end of the day.  Winds will be northwest at 5-10mph.

Other than a possible stray shower on Saturday, we are looking good for the next few days.  Highs will be in the 80s. Lows in the 60s and 70s.  The Atlantic is nice and quiet.  I think we could all use some quiet weather for a while.
