10/7 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook

HEAVY RAINS Are here and will be for the next 24 hours. There could be a brief respite, but showers and storms (especially mountains) could fire again Sunday adding to what, by then, will be Saturated grounds. Flood watch in effect! Tropics remain active and a pattern repeat could happen later next week as well which would mean more heavy rains! True shifty in pattern could keep us in line for more storminess and seasonal to slightly below normal temps for a while!

Summary:  Wow.. It is famine to a feast when it comes to rain. Areas could, under the right circumstances, see rain totals in the 5-10? range by the end of weekend. Tropical systems and disturbances riding up a slow moving front has a tropical moisture fetch. This combined with a high off the new England coast which is bringing moisture off the Atlantic is combining for a great rain event to occur. Flooding threats will likely be small streams and not the main basins, but I am betting we get close to normal on river flows early next week! See the drought page (http://www.midatlanticweather.com/drought) I am not going to comment to much on next week except a another wet system (not likely this wet) could affect us again later in the week. Seasonably cool should be the rule with temps


Tropics:  Another Tropical system could be in the progress of forming off the FL coast. Will be watching.
