(Joe Schumacher) More than an inch of rain fell between eight and nine o'clock this morning, leading to flash floods in the usual locations. As of 11 a.m., 2.39 inches of rain has fallen. That's almost twice the amount of precipitation that fell in all of April. More rain, possibly thunderstorms are expected are expected this afternoon as a low pressure system slowly makes its way across the Appalachians toward the Mid-Atlantic coast. Thick cloud cover and an easterly wind will keep the temperature to the lower 60s this afternoon.
The slow moving low means more unsettled weather is likely tomorrow. That surface low is being closely trailed by a cut-off low above and that combination calls for scattered showers and thunderstorms through Thursday afternoon. A weak high pressure will follow that system, bringing with it a mild Friday with highs in the mid 70s and only a slight chance of rain.
