1 Month of Rain in 2 Days to Soak Philly, Baltimore, Washington, DC

BE PREPARED:  1 Month of Rain in 2 Days to Soak Philly, Baltimore, Washington, DC
     Between today and Thursday morning (May 1) from Philadelphia to the Baltimore/Washington D.C. region could receive what amounts to a month of rain in 2 1/2 days. The National Weather Service forecast for those cities and the area around them calls for as much as 5 inches of rain in just over 48 hours.
  Average monthly rainfall is about 4 inches and we may get more than that in 2 days, so expect FLOODING, and FLASH FLOODING.  Flash Flood Watches and Coastal Flood Advisories and Watches are already in effect.

Today - Rainy and breezy with easterly gusts to 25 mph. Cool.   High near 53.  (up to 1/4" poss.) 
Tonight - Showers and poss. thunderstorm (some heavy rain), breezy. Low 51. (Btwn 1-2 Inches)
Wednesday -   Showers and poss. thunderstorm (some heavy rain), breezy. 67. (Btwn 1-2 Inches)
Wednesday Night -   Showers and poss. thunderstorm (some heavy rain), breezy. Low 63. (Up to 1" poss.)

 Thursday - Becoming Partly Sunny. 75

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?  A CUTOFF LOW PRESSURE AREA (one that is not being pushed) over the Central Plains today will drift northeastward toward the great lakes Wednesday. A frontal boundary associated with this system will remain stalled to the south of the area today and tonight before lifting northward as a warm front Wednesday. A cold front will move through the area Thursday.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
