Steady rains Thursday morning and busy radar to our west had hopes high that precipitation might cut the year's rainfall data, but expectations were again missed. The highest totals in the state were seen in Harford County, at just shy of half an inch, according to rain gauges reported to precipitation collaborative CoCoRaHS . Most of the Baltimore region saw a tenth to a third of an inch. The official tally at BWI Marshall Airport was 0.29 inches, including 0.23 inches that fell between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. and another six hundredths in the 10 p.m. hour.

Beryl, the second named storm of the 2012 hurricane season, is unlikely to bring any of the rain it has dumped on Florida and Georgia to Maryland. The storm, now a tropical depression, is predicted to move across the Carolinas today, moving out to sea by Thursday morning. Forecasters say it could regain tropical storm strength once it reaches warm waters again. But the National Hurricane Center's forecast cone shows the storm unlikely to come further north than the North Carolina/Virginia border.

Rain chances for Opening Day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards may be increasing, but there is still some uncertainty on how significantly a moist system from the Gulf of Mexico could affect the region. Even so, rain could start to clear in time for the 3:05 p.m. Friday first pitch. The National Weather Service is forecasting 60 percent chances of rain Friday, up slightly from 50 percent chances in earlier forecasts.  Forecasts call for what is known as a "Miller A type low" moving up from the Gulf of Mexico, though there is some uncertainty as to the track and timing of the system, according to the weather service's forecast discussion.

Rainfall was about three-quarters of an inch below average in September (and it was almost much drier than that), but the year is nonetheless on pace to be among Baltimore's top 15 wettest years on record. There was 3.21 inches of rain last month at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the point of record for Baltimore. Normal September rainfall is just over 4 inches. That brings the year-to-date total there to 41.48 inches.  It's rare for rainfall to surpass 40 inches through the first three-quarters of the year here, occuring only once or twice a year each decade on record.

NEW YORK - It is scheduled to rain here throughout the day, and there's a 70 percent chance of rain when Thursday night's series finale against the New York Yankees is supposed to begin. That's throwing the locals into a frenzy because of the possibility that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game could be rained out. If the game cannot be played Thursday, it likely wouldn't be made up if it's a meaningless game in the standings. The Orioles are still chasing the American League's best record - and home-field advantage throughout the postseason - but they're running out of games to catch up with the Los Angeles Angels.

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

The heavy wind and rain this month have homeowners looking up - to their gutters. Nothing will alert you to clogs, leaks and loose fittings like a downpour. Home improvement experts, including Daniel Onyikeh of Lowes in Catonsville, offer some tips. •Make sure the gutters are clean, especially after a heavy rain when debris from trees and the roof collect there. This means checking every couple of weeks, not just in the fall. Clogs most often occur where the gutter meets the downspout, so check there.
