As I previously mentioned, today is the best chance for storms. A cold front from our west is moving east, coupled with the humidity today and a low level jet stream pushing just to our north later in the day, gives us the dynamics necessary for strong storms later today. The rest of the week should be a bit cooler and less humid, but still hot.
TIMING: Most should see rain starting after 1:00pm with the stronger storms late afternoon. The bulk of the strong storms should be in western MD and north of Baltimore, although southern MD is also at risk for storms.
THREATS: Wind damage, lightning and flash flooding.
TROPICS: Although the tropics are getting active, thus far nothing of concern for MD. Although, I am watching TS Florence given some of the model data, but it also appears she will start to fizzle near the end of the week. If Florence maintains strength (unsure right now), then she is worth watching. I will keep an eye on this, but nothing to be worried about.
Thus far there are no watches/warnings issued. Follow me daily on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for weather updates and tidbits. My Weather Phone will be updated as needed (443-470-9804).
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
