Amid a drought, the Baltimore region got more rain Sunday than any other single day in the past six months, and this week should bring more.
The 1.36 inches of rainfall recorded at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport as of 9 p.m. was the most in the area since the 1.74 inches of rain April 21, said Brandon Fling, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
The rain followed a Wednesday drenching of more than an inch and nearly doubled the 1.54-inch total rainfall in what otherwise has been an unusually dry October, following less than two-tenths of an inch of rain in all of September.
Light rain has stubbornly been hanging on across the Mid Atlantic as low pressure (remnants of Nestor) spins off the Delmarva. However, the rain will be ending this evening. It will remain damp overnight, with lows in the 40s to near 50. pic.twitter.com/XRIHQz1rNA
