Well, as I look over things it appears what I previously posted is still valid. Storms later today, mainly west and south of Baltimore, yet pop up storms are possible north. The cold front sliding in from OH is responsible for this weather today.

What about the derecho? It is possible, not guaranteed. I do see some of the elements already coming together in the Chicago area. Derechos need a good jet stream upon which to ride, and that seems to exist today. "IF" it does develop, the path should take it into VA, but Southern MD needs to be aware of this as well, since any shift in direction would have it over southern Charles co and into St. Mary's co.

TIMING: Most storm activity should be later in the afternoon, although some pop up storms could hit after 1:00pm. If the derecho forms it wont be in the area until early evening. Remember, derecho aside, most of the storm activity should remain west and south of Baltimore.

THREATS: Strong wind gusts, hail, possible derecho

Currently there are no watches/warnings. These may be posted later in the day. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) and my Weather Phone will be updated as needed (443-470-9804).
