County gets welcome rain

August 25, 1999

Rain fell across Washington County on Wednesday, giving a much-needed boost to flowers, lawns and crops, and more precipitation is expected to fall through the week, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va.

The high temperature was 80 degrees Wednesday and humidity was low. Gray skies threatened rain for much of the day, and showers started to fall around 4 p.m. and continued into the evening.

Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer measured about .60 inches of rain by early evening. That brings Hagerstown's total rainfall for August to 2.80 inches, just short of the 3 inches typical for August.

Today's high is expected to be 70 degrees, while temperatures Friday and Saturday should be in the 80s, with lows in the 60s, forecasters said.
