Maryland summer pattern this weekend

By: cws6196 , 2:34 PM GMT on August 03, 2012

Today and this weekend will be a typical summer weather pattern for us. The high pressure just to our north moves off the coast today, and as it spins clockwise will bring in southerly hot air mixed with moisture from the ocean. The combination of moisture and hot air leads to instability in the atmosphere, therefore a chance for storms. This pattern, starting today, stays with us through Sunday. Later in the day Sunday a cold front moves just to our north, giving a chance for strong storms.

TIMING: Storms are possible each afternoon, mainly scattered pop up type storms. Keep an eye on the sky.

THREATS: Lightning, wind and small hail are the main threats.

SUNDAY: More details forthcoming, but the storms Sunday could be strong, mainly effecting western MD and Baltimore north toward PA. Southern MD could see some storms, but the bulk of the action should stay closer to the cold front which will be located just to the north of MD.

TROPICS: TS Ernesto is out there as well as another area of interest. Ernesto is not an issue for us and I will monitor the other area of interest to see what it may do. For now, no threats from the tropics in MD.
