    It would be nice to get a rogue heavy rain band or two with those gusts.

    Winter 2018-19 Is Coming

    I remember that wet October 1976 which led into the severely cold record breaking winter. The storms were nor'easters for the most part and were often followed by strong cold air masses which brought early freezes and frost to the Baltimore area. Fall foliage was noticeably early that year too, I can recall after one of the early freezes (around the 18th I think) many trees started dropping leaves with or without much wind because they were basically frozen off.

    I picked up .66" just after midnight in a moderate thunderstorm. Looking through radar loops looks like Baltimore was in more pervasive stronger activity about an hour later.

    Hurricane Florence

    Looks to me like Myrtle Beach is lucking out. Offshore winds all day with the center passing north of them not hugging the coast like it was forecasted.
