Wed storms & tropics

By: cws6196 , 1:38 PM GMT on August 01, 2012

As I posted the other day, storms are possible later today as a cold front moves into the area. This front is weak, and given the lower temps due to the cloud cover, storms should not be severe. But, cloud cover and temps aside, there is enough moisture in the air for storms to form.

TIMING: after 3:00pm, dying off as the sun sets

TYPE: Scattered storms which will pop up from the west. Keep an eye on the sky.

THREATS: Heavy rain and cloud-to-ground lightning.

TROPICS: Still watching a couple areas of interest, but right now none is a threat to MD. As we move into August and September, the tropics should get a bit more active, although overall I do not see a very active season. Keep in mind that the season lasts until the end of November. As a reminder, I typically do not post here about the tropics (I will tweet about it) unless there is a threat to Maryland. Otherwise, for general interest on the activity of the tropics, follow my Twitter.

As always, keep an eye on the sky, and if you can hear the thunder, you can be hit by the lightning. Follow me daily on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for weather updates and weather tidbits.
