Okay all you allergy sufferers ... Is it any better today? Did last night's rain clear the air and provide some relief from your pollen-induced hay fever? I know I feel about as lousy as I did yesterday,
and I'm going to have to cut the grass tonight. Ugh. I could use this woman's "hay fever hat."
We heard maybe one clap of thunder out on the WeatherDeck in Cockeysville last night. And the rain gauge showed just under a half-inch of rain this morning. But the oak flowers are still up there, and there was already new pollen on the car at daybreak.
Some places across Central Maryland saw as much as an inch of rain from last night's frontal passage, including Forest Heights, Prince Frederick and Oxon Hill. The nearer suburbs - Columbia, Towson, Long Green and Bel Air got about two-thirds of an inch.
Officially, BWI recorded 0.68 inch, the first measurable rain there in 10 days.
So we're probably looking at more allergy weather ahead. The pollen forecast calls for high numbers again by Sunday after a couple of "medium" days today and Saturday.
The forecast shows sunny, pleasant weather throughout the coming seven days, with highs, once we get past today's 50s, in the 60s to near 70, and cool nights.
