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.
Follow me daily on Twitter (@wxmandmd) for updates on storm activity and weather tidbits. I will update my Weather Phone as needed today (443-470-9804).
