PM Update: Our raw and rainy story goes on
Storm continues to plague region through Friday
The story of the week remains the slow-moving storm system dumping significant rains and causing coastal and urban flooding concerns. If the rain was not enough, highs mainly in the mid-to-upper 40s coupled with winds gusting over 30 mph have made the day feel quite raw and wintry. The rain shield that temporarily shrank back toward the south and east today is expected to come back west and north, setting the stage for another wet night.
Through Tonight: Rain that shifted back to the south and east today should swing back north across much or all of the area overnight. The highest totals will remain near and east of I-95, with generally lower totals in the north and west suburbs. Lows mainly fall to the mid 40s.
Tomorrow (Friday): More rain and chilly northeast winds gusting over 30 mph greet the end of the work week. Rain will likely continue through the day, though it may be lighter in some places and heavier in others. Temperatures should be a little milder on Friday, with highs rising to 50 or just above most spots.
Snow: Though this storm has been pumped full of tropical moisture, there has been enough cold air around to produce some accumulating snow in the mountains to the west of the region. Winter weather advisories were up last night for the highest elevations and locations such as Canaan Heights and Snowshoe, WV. measured accumulations of just over 1" and about 4" respectively.
