This is Baltimore's wettest November on record — with more rain moving through Monday

Saturday's downpours made this Baltimore's wettest November in what is already its wettest year on record.

And more rain fell through Monday afternoon.

There had been 7.72 inches of precipitation at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport this month through Saturday, breaking a record of 7.68 inches dating to 1952.

That means Baltimore has now experienced two monthly rainfall records this year. The other was set in July, with nearly 17 inches of precipitation that month.

2018 became Baltimore’s wettest year on record earlier this month, so each additional rainy day means the region is just adding to that extreme. The annual total at BWI is up to 64.86 inches.

Another 0.4 inches of rain fell at BWI through 2 p.m. Monday, and some rain was expected to continue through the afternoon hours as a low-pressure system moved off toward New England.

A coastal flood advisory is in effect along the shores of Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties and Baltimore City. High tides Monday afternoon and evening were forecast to be 1.5 to 2 feet above normal.

High pressure is forecast to move in, bringing colder, dry weather for Tuesday and Wednesday.
