Slow-moving storm unloads on Timonium
A slow-moving thunderstorm is dropping quite a load of rain on portions of northern Baltimore County this afternoon. Although downtown Baltimore remains dry just before 6 p.m., radar shows more than 3 inches has fallen this afternoon on a small area of the country north of Towson.
Is that even possible? Maybe so. A private weather station reporting on the Weather Underground seems to confirm the radar estimates - more than 3 inches today on their gauge, too.
