A mostly cloudy, warm, humid and rainy (FINALLY!) weather update for West Rockville Maryland for Sunday October 8 2017

Sunday was mostly cloudy, still warm, humid, with finally some rain (0.13″ through midnight) with dew point temperatures staying over the 70° mark all day. Temperatures stayed in the 70s all day. Dew points did not vary much all day, ranging from the low 70s to the mid 70s. Now at 0825 we have a cloudy sky with temperatures in the low 70s with dew points also in the low 70s. The Sunday minimum temperature from the VP2 (73.0°) was recorded at 0901 while the maximum temperature (79.4°) was recorded at 1611. Dew point temps ranged from 71° up to 75°. Relative humidity values were higher than yesterday (97% – 83%). Barometric values fell off a bit more today, ranging from 29.98″ at 1120 down to 29.92″ at 0529.

Remember now you can get the VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through  http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444. I am also now on weather underground. My ID is KMDROCKV200 and my station is called “Gardens of Traville.” Data is online, normally just about in real-time.

We now have a full overcast with rain and temperatures in the low 70s at 0825 Monday. Rains will fall from the dying tropical depression Nate, moderate to heavy at times, on Monday (100 POP – morning mostly), with highs in the low 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Partly sunny on Tuesday, highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 60s. Generally cloudy/showery and cooler weather should follow the rest of the workweek from Wednesday through Friday with temps in the upper 60s-lower 70s. Right now a 40 POP for rain on Wednesday and a 60 POP on Thursday. We still need all the rain we can get

On Weatherbug at 0825 the radar is showing rain falling over most of the immediate area and the Mid-Atlantic region, moving towards the north and east and should clear our area by mid-day to early afternoon.

As of 0825 EDT, the data from the VP2 (coming from the ground radiation shield about 4 feet off the ground just under and out from the balcony), the Lakewood WXBug station and the USG VP2 station across the street are as follows :
