Rainy day not over yet

No sunshine today.

Most of Greater Baltimore is under a flood warning as of 6:59 p.m., through 10 p.m. The National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., is calling for isolated thunderstorms to pass through the area, and I'm hearing reports in the Twittersphere that they're already here.

Further west, Hagerstown is under a flood watch and Cumberland is under a flood warning, with flash flood warnings out at Deep Creek Lakeand in West Virginia.

It comes on top of a dreary day. The rain gauge topped an inch at BWI Airport, hitting 1.05 inches as of about 6 p.m. Downtown seems to have seen a little less -- we recorded 0.84 inches here at the Sun weather station.

In both places, the bulk of the rain fell before lunchtime -- it hit a rate of nearly an inch and a half per hour around noon, the rain gauge here tells me.

Thursday, nice weather will return.

I got a question from one reader about just how nice -- AccuWeather was predicting temperatures in the 60s while Sterling expected nothing warmer than the mid-50s. Looks like AccuWeather might prove ahead of the curve on this one -- Sterling has upped its temperature forecast to the low 60s.
