Commence Washout

     Rain has or will be quickly overspreading the area. As you can see by the radar picture below, rain is really starting to fill in and organize over the Middle Atlantic States. The plume of moisture will be pushing south to north and will be over the area for an extended period of time. 2-4" can be expected over the area. Below is also the GFS and NAM model runs showing precipitation amounts over the next couple days total. As you can see, we are in for a soaker. 

     The other interesting thing about this storm is areas to the NW and West will more than likely be dealing with SNOW. Snow will fall, especially in the mountain areas, as the storm cranks up along the coast and really drops in some cold air. In fact, Winter Storm Watches have already been posted for areas as close as State College, PA.

Severe Thunderstorm Warning

For most of the area. Be on the lookout for high winds and heavy rains. In addition, dangerous lightening.

Soaker Sunday

Looking like rain moves in tomorrow morning and a nice soaking rain will fall. Over the state, a general 2-4" of rain will fall (which is almost equivalent to our snowfall from last winter). A flood watch has been posted for the area. More to come.

Late Weekend Washout

For those of you suffering from allergies over the past week, there is a bit of some good news on the way. Sunday into Monday the area will experience a significant rain storm dropping inches of rain over the area. While the pollen is getting washed into storm drains, the storm will also help to put a dent into our deficit of rainfall. 

More to come on this as we near closer to the start. For now, just know that there is the potential for a significant rainfall Sunday into Monday

Tornado Alley

Another tornado outbreak is getting underway right now through the Midwest. This is an even bigger area than last months Ohio Valley outbreak. This outbreak is going to last through tomorrow and can become even more dangerous over night as people are sleeping. I will be posting updates on twitter and Facebook
