scattered rain

By: cws6196 , 3:14 PM GMT on July 14, 2012

Yes, I know it is the weekend, but we really need rain, especially those in Southern MD. Today, and most of next week, each day is a chance for rain. Today is a chance for scattered rain and possible thunderstorms later in the afternoon. I wouldn't change any of my plans, but keep an eye on the sky. Remember, if you can hear the thunder, no matter what the sky looks like above you, you could be hit by lightning. Stay safe out there.

The tropics are quite calm, and I expect that to remain as such, but just know that August and September are the more active months. Those of you reading my posts for some time know that I am not a fan of long-range climatology predictions, but right now the data is indicating a return to an El Nino pattern. For us in MD that typically indicates a return to a "normal" winter with a possibility for snow storms. Last winter was a La Nina winter while the winter we had the multiple blizzards was an El Nino winter. Not saying that will again happen, just making comparisons.
