[4:50 PM] A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for portions of the VA and MD Eastern Shore late tonight through Friday morning. Moisture associated with Tropical Storm Fay in addition to already wet soils will make for an increased risk of flash flooding across the Eastern Shore. pic.twitter.com/L0J37m2YLC

Tropical Storm Fay has formed and will hug the east coast and bring copious amounts of moisture to coastal regions of the mid-Atlantic before reaching the northeast. Thunderstorms should develop overnight and continue throughout the day Friday.
In this inconsistent world, it's nice to be able to count on the 3 km NAM to give us consistently amusing solutions, like this forecast of likely future tropical storm #Fay (provided by @PivotalWeather).

Areas east of Salisbury, like the Maryland and Delaware beaches, can expect several inches of rain. The Salisbury area itself should receive a minimum of one to two inches of rain if the storm does not change its path. We are fortunate that this is not a hurricane.
