Salisbury MD

Tropical Storm Warning

The Maryland counties of Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, and Dorchester are under tropical storm warnings, but you only have to travel towards Virginia Beach to be under a hurricane warning, as evidenced by this radar image from 5 AM this morning.

Expect windswept rain, perhaps heavy at times, overnight into Friday.  Thunderstorms are likely but tornadoes are not at the present time.  It is expected that the worse conditions for us, whatever they may be, would be from Friday morning into the afternoon.  Wind is likely a bigger concern than the rain for most of us, but the rising tides will allow for the possibility of some flooding.

The good news is that Hurricane Dorian, now a Category 1, is picking up speed and moving to the NE.  It has yet to make landfall in the United States.  I believe Salisbury will be spared tropical force winds. We may well get lucky!

The Delmarva Shorebirds Class A South Atlantic League Championship baseball game is scheduled for this evening at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium as well as the National Folk Festival in Salisbury.  I do not know how much rain our baseball field can handle.  The bigger concern downtown is probably the wind.

The sun should return on Saturday.
