Tuesday storms in Maryland

By: cws6196 , 1:10 PM GMT on May 15, 2012

This is rain that we need! More is on the way, but there will be a lull in the action for a few hours now. Given the moisture in the atmosphere and an approaching Low pressure system (rising air), the chance for thunderstorms exists.

TIMING: Rain will start again in a few hours, but thunderstorm activity should hold off until after 3:00pm to allow for the heating of the day and the approach of the Low.

THREATS: Some of these storms could be severe with wind, hail and lightning the main threats. Wind gusts and strong downdrafts could cause damage. There is a 2% risk for a tornado; unlikely, but still be aware of your surroundings.
