Heavy rain and isolated bouts of flooding possible again this evening

/ July 20, 2021 at 8:23 AM

We look to have another wet day ahead, with some showers already popping up west of the Ashley as I write this. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will again be later this afternoon into this evening. There will once again be a chance for localized heavy rain, with a 30% probability of 3” of rain in 3 hours once again being indicated by the high-resolution ensemble data. Yesterday this bore out in the 17-A corridor headed into College Park, with floodwater on the ground for a few hours after the main rain event. Thus, we are going to need to watch radar trends carefully, noting that high tide will be coming up at 5:39 PM.

Clouds and rain will keep temperatures a few degrees below normal, with highs in the mid-80s expected across the area. A few peeks of sun aren’t out of the question, allowing temperatures in a few spots to perhaps jump quickly. Humidity will still factor in, though, and it’ll feel closer to 94-95° in the afternoon.

Try to stay dry and weather-aware once again today!
