November has been an unbelievably warm month thus far with an average temperature that is a whopping 9 degrees above normal. The stretch of beautiful weather has now come to an end with a deluge of rain. Leaves have fallen en mass and the skies have become gray.
The SBYwx.blog weather station has already registered 4.13 inches of rain since the storm began yesterday afternoon. Periods of heavy rain are expected today which could add another 2 inches of rain or more in isolated areas. Flooding is likely an issue across Delmarva.
Periods of moderate to heavy rain expected this morning into this afternoon. A Flash Flood Watch continues for the entire area. Please don't attempt to cross flooded roadways, turn around don't drown! pic.twitter.com/NJTyahdKzW

Today will bring a high in the upper 60’s, a far cry from the upper 70’s temps that seemingly became our norm over the past week. The rain will make for a dreary day and may last into Friday morning when the precipitation tapers off to showers. Friday’s high temp should register in the low 60’s. That precedes our first “real” November day on Saturday when mostly sunny skies dominate with temps in the upper 50’s.
