Central MD Weather Conditions

another tornado in MD

By: cws6196, 12:18 AM GMT on April 30, 2011

There has been a second tornado confirmed in MD, this one along Breton Bay in Leonardtown in Southern MD. There are still NWS survey teams looking into storm damage, so there may be more reports. If my count is correct, thus far this Spring Maryland has had 8 confirmed tornadoes.

debrief & storm stats

By: cws6196, 4:06 AM GMT on April 29, 2011

I truly do not know what to say. Wednesday into Thursday was a whirlwind weather moment for me. In those two days there were officially 190 tornado reports nationally with estimates of nearly 300 casualties. I cannot recall the last time, in my weather memory, of such a day. And for us, the storms came hours before they should have, with Thursday morning seeing multiple (too many for me to keep up with), tornado warnings issued for Central and Southern MD. It is overwhelming at what has happened these past two days. It reaffirms for me that we need more chasers and more research so we can better understand these storms and their development. We have come a long way to be sure, but obviously more needs to be done.

Locally, as of this writing in MD there was only 1 confirmed tornado, that being at Andrews AFB (see the official report below). There were multiple reports of funnel clouds, but only the one confirmed touchdown.

The good news - boring weather for the rest of the weekend! Possible activity next week, but let's enjoy these next few days first.

last week of April

By: cws6196, 5:50 PM GMT on April 25, 2011

update Thurs April 28 afternoon

The Tornado Watch has been canceled. I will give an update later this evening as to what happened and any storm reports. If you experienced any severe weather feel free to share with me so I can share it with the NWS for their records.

update Wed April 27 early evening

Wow! What a night, and it continues. I do hate to be wrong, but I was since I didn't see storms forming until after Midnight; but they came in sooner. The rest of the evening we will see similar conditions with storms popping up, some severe. This is a time to have a weather radio. I do see storms possible through the morning into about Noon or so Thursday. The cold front is still West of OH but moving this way, hence the threat of storms in the morning.

I do see the main threat for the storms will be winds and hail with a possibility for tornadoes. As you have seen, there have already been a few tornado warnings in MD. If any produced tornadoes I will let you know.

I will be keeping the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) and Twitter (@wxmanmd) updated while I am awake. The good news is the weather will be calm the rest of the week into the weekend, although cooler.


update Wed April 27 afternoon

Looks like the cloud cover will linger throughout the day which will impede thunderstorm development today. The greatest threat for thunderstorm activity for us in Central and Southern MD will be after midnight into Thursday morning. But, do keep an eye on the sky later today for a stray pop up thunderstorm.

I will have another update later this evening. I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) updated as well as Twitter (@wxmanMD).

update Tues April 26 afternoon

There are some scattered storms showing up on the radar to our West and South. Tonight we will not see a line of storms, but there could be scattered pop up storms. I am still watching Thursday for our best shot at severe weather. More to come on that later.

original post Mon April 25 afternoon

The storms yesterday were fairly quick and caused some damage S and SW of Baltimore. The frontal boundary which brought this on remains along the MD/PA and will stay there through late Tuesday or so. As it moves to the North we will see an increase in Southern winds, warm air and more moisture. It will kind of feel like Summer. Come late Wednesday or Thursday a cold front moves in, and well we all know what happens when cold air bumps into warm humid moist air ... so Thursday (late Wed) looks be the best chance for another round of severe weather for us. Note though there is a "slight" chance later today and late Tues for scattered thunderstorms, although unlikely.

I will keep you posted as the week progresses.

Easter storms

By: cws6196, 2:20 PM GMT on April 24, 2011

original post Sun April 24 morning

Storms are possible later this afternoon, more so after 3pm. With a cold front stalling to our North and warm Southern air moving in, we are primed for some thunder. Today should be mainly sunny, so the increased temps will aid in the instability.

I don't see these as major, and no tornado threats. Hail and rain are the main threats.

I will keep you posted best I can, but am away from my equipment and with family this Easter day. I will try to keep the Weather Phone and Twitter (@wxmanmd) updated.

rest of the week

By: cws6196, 3:55 AM GMT on April 19, 2011

original post Mon April 18 Midnight

Given the history of storms lately in the area, I just wanted to give you a quick look at the week. Overall we can expect a fairly quiet week. Rain is possible most days, but then again it is Spring.

Tuesday afternoon into the evening we could see scattered thunderstorms, primarily to the West and North of Baltimore. Nothing severe as these are being formed due to the movement of the current warm front to the North and a cold front to swing in from the NW. It is Wednesday afternoon's storms which have the potential for some damage, but not as severe as Saturday's storms. These storms will be fueled by a Low moving along the Great Lakes and an influx of warm moist air from the South. Those who do experience these storms will see wind as the main damage threat. I do not see a tornado threat either of those days for us.

Since thunderstorms can be somewhat unpredictable, if there is lightning and thunder in your area please be mindful of what is happening and be prepared to take cover. I do not foresee the issuance of any watches or warnings at this time, but if they are issued (mainly for Wednesday) I will keep you posted through the Weather Phone (443-470-9804), here and on Twitter (@wxmanMD).

Have a good week!

another confirmed tornado in MD

In my previous post I stated there was a confirmed tornado on Saturday - actually there were three confirmed tornadoes on Saturday in MD. Here are the descriptions:

original post

Those were some storms Saturday afternoon into the evening. There are many reports of downed trees and damage due to wind, plus reports of rain accumulations near 2 inches (I recorded 1.41").

There was a confirmed tornado in Carroll Co (see the note below). When a final report is issued I will share it.

I have attached uploaded a picture to Weather Underground I took Saturday evening as the sun was setting and the storms were moving to the NE. These are called mammatus clouds, typically seen preceding a tornado or near a strong thunderstorm cell (anvil). Their formation is not completely certain, but I will say I was nowhere near the tornado, but there were thunderstorms prior to this picture. Not only was this exciting to see, but I was actually watching them form! This was a first for me.

Overall this coming week looks to be quiet with some chances for rain. Tuesday afternoon into the evening we could see some thunderstorms, but right now they don't look to be severe.

Saturday rain

By: cws6196, 3:44 AM GMT on April 14, 2011

update Sat April 16 late afternoon

The current radar shows many storms heading into Central and Southern MD arriving within the hour or so. There is hail and rotation in some of the cells. The Tornado Watch is still in effect.

I will keep the Weather Phone updated as well as Twitter (@wxmanMD).

update Sat April 16 early afternoon

A quick update: the cold front and associated Low pressure system are to the West of us around WV or so. As the front moves closer we will experience the stronger storms. There have been (and will be) breaks in the clouds this afternoon. Those breaks will allow for a warm up leading to more instability in the atmosphere leading to a greater potential for storms. These storms will enter Central MD around 5:00pm or so. Southern MD may escape these severe storms, but it is not totally out of the question. Tornadoes are still possible in these storms, and my latest look at the wind profiles shows upper level winds shifting away from the surface winds. Either way, tornadoes or not, wind is the factor later this afternoon into the evening.

The Weather Phone (443-470-9804) is updated as well as Twitter (#wxmanMD). I will post as is needed.

update Sat April 16 morning

The forecast is still on track, although the precip is delayed a bit in coming. Although for some of us it is starting now and for others, just give it a minute.

Modifications to my previous forecast would be to emphasize the thunderstorm threat. Originally I thought it would be more of scattered storms, but now the conditions are adding up to support lines of storms.

THREATS

1. thunderstorms may form late this afternoon due to the pressure systems and upper level winds and a strong jet. Those who experience these storms will see wind as the main threat.

2. Wind - even those not in the storms will see wind gusts in excess of 30 mph

3. Tornado - we are currently under a 10% chance for seeing a tornado in MD. The threat is mainly due to the shifting winds in a column from the surface to the upper atmosphere. If you walk out even now you can see that there is little wind at the surface, but look up and you will see stronger winds, probably in a different direction.

4. A Coastal Flood Watch is still in effect

Currently there are no advisories or warnings issued (except the coastal flood watch). I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) and Twitter (@wxmanMD) updated.

update Fri April 15 after midnight

From my previous post there is not much more to add concerning the rain issues on Saturday.

TIMING

The rain will be coming from the West to the East, but Central MD should have rain early Saturday morning (before 7:00) while those East will see the rain start a bit later.

AMOUNT

Most of us will see about 1.5 inches of rain (2" or more is possible locally), with those to the West of Baltimore seeing more accumulation and those East seeing a bit less rain accumulation.

MARINE

Tides on Saturday and Saturday evening will be running about 1 foot or more above normal tide levels. Due to the cold front and pressure gradients, gale warnings could be issued and small craft advisories should be in effect most of the weekend.

CONCERNS

I am concerned about flash flooding and wouldn't be surprised to see flood watches posted (nothing as of this writing). I am also concerned about isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon into the evening. Those who do see these storms can expect gusty winds.

I should have another update Saturday morning unless watches are issued prior to that. I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) updated as well as my Twitter (@wxmanMD).


original post Wed April 13 evening

I typically don't post weather messages about rain events, but this Saturday is different. I will wait with details until late Thursday evening, but as it looks now, come Saturday into the evening we could see about 2 or more inches of rainfall. This on top of the large amounts of rain we have been receiving will only saturate the ground further. Flash flooding is a concern and I will be looking for that and other watches to be issued.

Also, those along the coastal waters (Chesapeake Bay, Potomac River, etc) could see high tides a foot or more above normal. This is a result of the Easterly winds we will be experiencing.

I will have another update late Thursday with timing and a better idea about the amount of rain. For those who are complaining about all this rain here is perspective - what if it were snow? We would easily have close to a foot of snow on the ground right now, and come Saturday it would be close to another 20 inches on top of the foot. Just a thought .....

I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) updated as well as my Twitter feed (@wxmanMD).

more storms Monday

By: cws6196, 4:08 AM GMT on April 08, 2011

update Mon April 11 early afternoon

It is feeling like Summer out there for sure. This won't last though as the rest of the week temps will be closer to normal for the season. Most of the rest of the week will be scattered rain, with another set of storms possible this weekend.

For tonight, the cold front is moving toward the area and sections of Southern PA are already seeing rain. The best chance for severe weather is for those located around Baltimore and to the West, North and Northeast. Southern MD should be spared this time, but still keep a watch out. Most of the severe weather will occur closer to or after Midnight.

I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) updated as well as Twitter (@wxmanMD). Currently there are no watches or warnings issued for the area. I should have another update later this evening.

update Sun April 10 morning

While the weather has been quite active in the mid-west, it is boring here. Today, what you see is what you get, clouds but nice temps. Tomorrow we will have Summer type weather with temps in the 80's!! This is due to a warm front moving up into the area. But, those warm temps will aid in producing the instability later in the evening.

Monday evening a cold front moves into the area, bringing with it rain and bumping into the warm air. The instability caused by the warm air, combined with the cold air, is a set up for strong storms. Actually, this is very similar to last Monday's set up which produced a tornado in Southern MD.

TIMING

We should have rain entering Central MD after 7:00pm, stronger after Midnight. The bulk of the storms would be closer to and after Midnight. The rain and storms should be over before Noon Tues.

TYPE

We can expect a good amount of rain, thunder and lightning and possible damaging winds. Not too confident in hail production, and a low confidence in tornado formation, BUT cannot rule out one either.

CONCERNS

Anytime there is severe weather I have concerns, but my greatest concern is that the bulk of these storms will occur in the evening and overnight hours. The former condition makes it difficult to see any tornado formation, while the latter is problematic as most people will be sleeping. My two suggestions: get a weather alert radio, and keep your ears peeled when the storms start.

I will have another update later Monday, but as these storms will happen most likely when I am sleeping, I may not be posting warnings, etc. If there are watches/warnings posted early I will let you know. This afternoon I should be installing my new weather station and so hope to have accurate data from these storms.

I will keep the Weather Phone (443-470-9804) updated as well as Twitter (@wxmanMD). The rest of the week looks to be quiet in regard to severe weather/storms.


original post Fri April 8 Midnight

It appears this coming Monday evening into Tuesday morning is a good chance for us to again see some severe weather, although this time the storms could be more severe then last week with the possibility of tornadoes. I will have more on this over the weekend as I look at the latest data and model runs. As I mentioned awhile ago, I am concerned that this Spring will be quite the stormy one for us.

storm report update Tues April 5 afternoon

Well, the storms came through this morning, and even though a tornado watch was issued, it appears the only damage reports are from Southern MD where trees and power poles were downed by the winds. Central MD only received a burst of rain and some wind.

The NWS survey team is heading to Southern MD to investigate possible tornado touchdowns. When I see the official report from the NWS I will pass it along.


update Mon April 4 early evening

I hope everyone enjoyed the nice day we just had! Tomorrow will be colder by about 10 degrees or so. We can expect rain to enter Central Maryland after Midnight, closer to 3:00 am or so. As a cold front moves into the area it could trigger some severe storms. These storms could contain hail and strong wind. Tornado threat stays to the West of the area. The rain should be over by Noon, but the rest of Tuesday will be windy.

As this storm will come in when I should be sleeping I may not be putting out alerts. Stay tuned to your weather radios.

original post Mon April 4 way early

Now we move into the Spring storms. Did you like the light show Sunday night? It looks like we will have more of those storms come Tuesday morning. Right now it appears the storms, for Central MD, should start way past Midnight, closer to Tuesday morning commute. These will be fast moving storms, and given the time of day they will hit, I do not see them as strong storms. We could see gusting wind and strong rain, but that should be all. The rest of Tuesday will be quite windy and about 10 degrees colder then Monday.

I will have another update later Monday night.
