If last month seemed wetter than any June you can remember, it might just be - the 7.81 inches of rain that fell over the month at BWI Marshall Airport was the most in Baltimore since June 1972, when Hurricane Agnes helped bring a record-setting 9.95 inches. The June 2013 total ties with June 1881 as the seventh-wettest since record-keeping began in 1871. Only three other times in the last 65 years was June wetter - in 1948, 1951 and 1963. Agnes dropped more than 6 inches at BWI over two days, from June 21-22, 1972, setting rainfall records for both days.

The tropics are quiet nearly a month into the Atlantic hurricane season, and that could eventually mean the season's latest start since at least 2004. No tropical cyclones have formed yet this year, whereas in each of the past nine years, a tropical storm has developed in May or June. The National Hurricane Center does not forecast any cyclone development within the next 48 hours, and there are no areas it is eyeing for storm development within the next five days, either. Last year, Tropical Storm Andrea formed June 5, while in 2012, Tropical Storm Alberto came before the season's official June 1 start, on May 19. In 2011, tropical storm Arlene formed June 28, a mark we are sure to surpass this weekend.

Approaching the heart of hurricane season, government forecasters say indicators are pointing to a potentially "very active" pattern in the tropics, affirming pre-season outlooks. "Our confidence for an above-normal season is still high because the predicted atmospheric and oceanic conditions that are favorable for storm development have materialized," Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center in College Park, said in a statement. "Also, two of the four named storms to-date formed in the deep tropical Atlantic, which historically is an indicator of an active season.

A NASA satellite's images show thunderstorm clouds nearly 9 miles high around Tropical Storm Andrea -- areas that could bring heavy downpours to some parts of Maryland on Friday. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (or TRMM satellite) flew above the storm Thursday, revealing a large area of moderate to heavy rainfall in the northeast quadrant of the storm as it passed over Florida, according to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Scientists at Goddard developed an animation of the satellite images, seen above.

Update, 6:06 p.m.: Tropical Storm Andrea has formed about 300 miles west of Florida, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Florida's Gulf coast, with tropical storm watches from the Jacksonville, Fla., area to the Carolinas. The storm, whether or not it maintains its strength, could brush past the Delmarva peninsula late Friday with heavy rain and gusty winds, according to the National Hurricane Center. Original post, as of 2:53 p.m.: Hurricane forecasters are watching a system of thunderstorms and gale-force winds that is becoming increasingly organized and could soon form the season's first Atlantic tropical cyclone.

Just a few days into the hurricane season, Tropical Storm Andrea is forecast to deluge Maryland and much of the Atlantic coast Friday, prompting flash flood warnings across the Baltimore region. The storm was not expected to pack anything close to the intensity of Hurricane Sandy seven months earlier, but threatened to inundate low-lying areas, rivers and streams. It brought tornadoes to Florida on Thursday and was expected to dump nearly a foot of rain in some areas of the Southeast.

Kevin Buck, the club's coordinator of team travel, made contingency plans to keep the Orioles in their Houston hotel Thursday night if needed. But, as of Thursday afternoon, the club was told it should be OK to fly into Tampa after the game. “I think we're OK. Last night, Kevin made plans to stay here.
