Forecast Graphic for 8/27/12

Active weather day yesterday! A few tornado warnings were issued, including damage reported just north of Hagerstown in PA, and a confirmed waterspout near Cobb Island, MD.  Rainfall also set records yesterday thanks to the moist, tropical flow.  This led way to a record 3.36” of rain at BWI Airport as storms trained over central Maryland.  The Eastern shore received even heftier amounts of precipitation, with some estimates in the double-digits.

Today has been a stark contrast, with the sun remaining overhead and very warm temperatures into the upper-80s.  All of this ahead of a weak cold front which is moving towards our area.  What does that mean for our forecast this week?  Read on to find out!

Rain showers scattered around the DC area today, with the heavier precipitation staying further east.  This due to a low pressure system which is occupying Eastern Virginia.  As all eyes are on Isaac and Florida, we won’t have to worry about it here until the remnants reach us at week’s end; but will any other showers affect us?  Read for the full forecast!
