As I mentioned yesterday, #storms, some severe, are probable later today. The warm moist air moving up from the south (thanks to the Bermuda High) is in place as a cold front moves into the area. The heavier cold air will force the lighter hot air higher into the atmosphere causing the potential for storms. The only "possible" feature keeping down the severity of any storm development is the cloud cover we have been experiencing. Typically I would have said that the cloud cover will prevent storms, but even without the heating of the sun, the dewpoints (again, thanks to the High) are high enough to cause instability.

TIMING: Storm development should happen after 2:00pm into the evening.

THREATS: Strong damaging #wind, #hail, torrential #rain are the main threats. An isolated #tornado is not out of the question.

So far no watches/warnings are issued but I expect that to change. Keep an eye on the sky and your weather radio turned on. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for updates on the storm.
