The heat continues and Wednesday could reach into the low 90's in some parts. This is way above our normal temps for the season, but the temps will tapper off after Thursday. Thursday evening the cold front which is currently effecting the central part of the nation will move into our area late Thursday evening into Friday morning. Behind the front will be cooler and more seasonable temps.
Right now it appears that the chance for strong storms is diminishing. Since the cold front will arrive after sunset, the heating of the day will not be a factor. Although, given wind direction and the moisture in the atmosphere (thanks to this southerly wind), there is some potential for overnight thunderstorms.
TIMING: Those along the MD/PA line south toward Baltimore have a slight chance for thunderstorms Wed evening. The Thursday rain and storm activity will arrive close to midnight and last into Friday morning.
THREATS: These storms should not be severe, but if you encounter one wind and hail are the main threats. Tornado threat does not exist.
If there are any changes I will let you know. The NWS may issue watches for Thursday, but with the storms coming in late you may not get the alerts. I highly recommend everyone to purchase a weather radio and turn it on.
