I know the forecast is calling for thunderstorms today, but honestly I am not seeing it, at least not for most of Central Maryland. A cold front is moving through later this afternoon which could trigger storms. Southern MD and VA have a greater chance at storms then us. There could be isolated storms, and if you experience one of those, wind will be the greatest danger of gusts over 50 mph possible. As the afternoon progresses do not be surprised if the NWS issues a thunderstorm watch.

Recently I have heard some local forecasters speaking of snow Friday evening for Central Maryland. I do not see this. There is a Low coming from the Gulf with a good deal of moisture with it, but given the track of the Low we will be on the warm end. I guess, possibly, those closer to PA could see some of the white stuff, but that's about it. I also don't see any strong storms with this system, just rain.

Update Tuesday morning
Basically what I mentioned previously is still intact. Rain and potential for strong thunderstorms should begin later afternoon into the evening. Those closer to PA and to the Bay may not see rain until Midnight or later. The biggest threat continues to be strong winds. Expect further watches/warnings to be issued as the day progresses.
This is a quick note for a heads up regarding possible severe weather in Central Maryland Tuesday. The model data shows strong wind layers through the atmosphere as a strong Low moves past us to the West. I am not talking snow, rather strong thunderstorms with wind and about an inch of rain. The Storm Prediction Center places us in a 30% chance of these storms. The SPC also notes a possibility of tornadoes in isolated storm cells.
