Well, unfortunately on Monday the bulk of the storms stayed away from MD while effecting PA and VA. Not that I want us to necessarily see storms, but we do need the rain.
I will have a more complete update later Tuesday morning, but Tuesday has a good chance for severe weather as a cold front drops in from the north. Much of the action may be in Southern MD, but central MD could see storms as well. At this time I see storms in central MD after 1:00pm and later in the afternoon in southern MD.
Why did I call this post "rumor"? A respected meteorologist, pointing to one of the models, is talking about a possible derecho on Tuesday. Now, I am not at all saying that I know better than a professional, nor am I saying he is wrong, but I am saying that forecasting a derecho, which is typically a rare occurrence, is not easy. Especially this far out. I have looked over the data he is indicating, and as I do see potential I am not as yet convinced. If it were to come about, the projected path would have it effecting VA and Southern MD. I need to look at the models and the radar Tuesday morning to have a better idea what is happening.
Nonetheless, there is a threat for storms Tues and I will have an update later in the morning.
