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.

Is it suppose to be really bad for western Kentucky tomorrow I know this if for central MD but I can not find any talk about KY and I am terrified of storms. Thank you!

I'm sorry to hear of your fear of storms. It appears you could see some storms with wind as the main factor. I do not see tornadoes or anything like that for you today. Thank you for reading my blog and asking.
