Arundel got the big rain Thursday
Looks like Southern Maryland and the lower Eastern Shore missed Thursday's rain. This time it was Anne Arundel County that really dropped into the crosshairs of the late afternoon and evening storms, with well over 2 inches in some locations. BWI Airport picked up 1.72 inches, with 1.4 of that falling between 4 and 5 p.m.
More showers and thunderstorms are expected again late Friday afternoon and evening, with more of the same due right through the weekend. There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect for all of Central Maryland.
Here are some of the local rain tallies, from the CoCoRaHS Network:
Green Haven, Anne Arundel: 2.82 inches
South Gate, Anne Arundel: 2.35 inches
BWI-Marshall Airport: 1.72 inches
Severn, Anne Arundel: 1.44 inches
White Marsh, Baltimore Co.: 1.25 inches
Bel Air, Harford: 0.57 inch
Taneytown, Carroll: 0.47 inch
Towson, Baltimore County: 0.18 inch
Baltimore City: 0.02 inch
The forecast from Sterling says there's a 60 percent chance the storms will resume Friday after 4 p.m., with up to a quarter-inch possible, and another quarter-inch to follow overnight. More rain is possible in thunderstorms. Like yesterday, some storms could become severe, with damaging winds and hail, localized heavy rain and flash flooding.
Rain chances continue, at diminished probabilities, through the weekend. But there's a cold front due to pass through Sunday or Monday. That should clear the air and leave us with sunny weather next week, and seasonable temperatures.
