There is a chance today for thunderstorms beginning later this afternoon (about 3:00 or later). This is due to a cold front pushing in from the West. Ahead of that front thunderstorms are possible. These will be scattered and relatively slight.

Some in the local media are playing up a Nor'easter for us this weekend. I just don't see it, especially for us in Central MD. The tropical system is not yet moving, and now the models show it to be further to the East of the coast then in previous model runs. What will be effecting us is the pressure difference between the High pressure to our North and the Low pressure off the coast of the Carolinas. As we sit in the middle of these two systems we will feel the winds pick up. Also, as High pressure circulates clockwise and Low pressure counter clockwise, our location has both systems pulling ocean (moisture rich) air onshore.
So, the way I see it, those East of I-95 will see periods of strong winds (over 10 mph) and many of us will have rain Thursday afternoon into evening. Rainfall amounts could be over an inch. Those along the Atlantic Coast and Bay will see increased wave heights and higher tides. As the weekend progresses the rain will diminish such that Saturday late morning we will see clearing.

Welcome to Autumn!! As we bring in Autumn we still look to the tropics. The disturbance which has been flooding Puerto Rico bears some watching. Attached is the graph of the different model data as to the direction of this disturbance if it becomes tropical. At this moment the forecast shows it is favorable to develop once it moves away from the islands. As you can see in the graphic, it has the potential to effect us in Central MD. This is well over a week away and so the confidence in this happening is low, but we should at least be aware of the possibly.
