Soaking Rain Possible Friday - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Soaking Rain Possible Friday

Posted:

Some big changes are coming to the forecast as we head into Friday. A strong cold front currently over the Midwest will push across Delmarva and bring the potential for heavy rainfall and some flooding.

The rain will begin early Friday morning between 6am-9am with temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The heaviest rain looks to occur between 11am-3pm before coming to an end after 4pm. Total rainfall could be upwards of an inch, maybe more in isolated spots. The highest totals will occur west of the Chesapeake Bay where 2"-4" is expected. The attached image is from our 47ABC Futurecast and gives an estimate of rainfall totals for cities across the peninsula.

Not only will this front bring rain, but also the chance for some thunderstorms. I am not expecting any severe storms, but don't be surprised if thunder is embedded within some heavier showers. Minor flooding is also possible, especially along coastal areas on Delmarva.

Much cooler and less humid air arrives in the wake of the front. High pressure develops over the region and brings lots of sun for the upcoming weekend with temperatures only in the low to mid 70s.

*Flood Watches have been issued Thursday night into Friday for areas west of the Chesapeake Bay and areas north of Dover where flooding is more likely.*
