10/5 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook

Rain in the Forecast! Maybe quite a bit too, but a lot depends on how slow the front pushes through! Much cooler temps for the weekend and a general dry pattern returning with temps near normal next week!

Summary:  Tropical Storm Tammy formed this morning and will play an important role in the weather the next few days. A strong front that is causing a serious winter storm for the upper Plains States and Canada will be approaching and slowly moving through the area. The remnants of Tammy should get entrained into the front and the low pressure will ride up the coast. This could really do some work on the rain deficits as the rain amounts MAY approach 3?+ in parts of the Eastern areas (East of I?95).  The concern is that the front is too far east to get most of the area really wet. The best bet for good rains would be right along the coast. After the storm goes by cooler drier area should come through this weekend. Long term we look to drier and remaining seasonally cool.


Tropics:  Tropical Storm Tammy was born this morning just east of Florida. Watching a few things out there, but tropics are not too busy beyond this system.
