Welcome to Autumn!! Autumn officially arrives at 10:49am, yet today will not feel like it. We have a southerly wind pushing in warmer temps, and actually, with the beginning of fall it will be warmer today than it has been the last couple days. But nonetheless, autumn is here!
A cold front is moving toward our area, and coupled with the warm humid air could help to create storms later today. Some of the storms could be severe, but not widespread. For an interesting look at the wind, check out this link showing the wind speed and direction in real time. As I write this you can see the massive amount of cold air coming into the mid section of the country while we have a good amount warm air moving up: http://hint.fm/wind/
LOCATIONS: Central MD and those east of I-95 could see the brunt of the storms, but Southern MD is not out of the mix.
TIMING: Most of the storms should happen after 5:00pm today.
THREATS: Damaging gusty winds, hail, slight chance for isolated tornado.
TROPICS: Nothing to effect MD.
SNOW: Yes, I did use the "S" word. As Autumn progresses I will talk more about our snow threat, but suffice it to say, we could see some of the white stuff this winter.
