We will see lots of sunshine today with temperatures in the mid 60’s. While still breezy the winds will be nothing compared to the ones we experienced yesterday. The weather will cooperate with the cleanup operations from yesterday’s tornado in Sussex County. Winds in the Laurel-Seaford area reached 120 mph.
When yesterday morning’s storms rolled through the Salisbury area the temperature dropped 7 degrees in 10 minutes. We went from calm to wicked in a matter of minutes and were suddenly pelted with heavy rain. In fact, the rain was falling at a rate of 6.86 inches per hour at my weather station at 4 AM. I was lucky as many areas on Delmarva received much more rain than my recorded amount of .86 inches. Many areas received 2 to 3 inches of rain in a short time.
Wednesday brings sunshine and highs in the upper 60’s. It will be nice to see the sun for a couple of days before clouds return on Thursday.
