storms in Maryland end of the week

By: cws6196 , 4:34 AM GMT on August 08, 2012

This is a "spoiler alert" regarding potential strong storms the end of the week. Looking at the long range data, models and dynamics, Thursday afternoon we will have a good chance for storms primarily in W MD and north of Baltimore (not exclusively), and on Friday more widespread and severe storms in the afternoon effecting all of MD. A high pressure system is sitting off the coast spinning clockwise bringing in southern warm moist air. On top of that air will be upper level disturbances on Thursday allowing for storm formation, and on Friday a cold front will be moving into the area from the west with storms firing just ahead of the front.

These storms, especially on Friday, could be severe. I will have a more detailed update as the week progresses, but wanted to let you know what is potentially coming our way.
