Friday storms Maryland

By: cws6196 , 2:34 PM GMT on August 10, 2012

Wasn't it nice to wake to rain? We still need many inches of rain make up for the drought conditions especially in Southern MD. Thus far my forecast is on track with the rains this morning followed by a period of clearing. The issue is how much clearing. If the cloud levels stay thick the atmosphere, although already unstable, wont destabilize as needed for severe weather. If the sun is out for a good period of time, storm potential increases. But, whether or not the storms are severe, we will still see rain, heavy at times, later today.

TIMING: I see another round of scattered showers/storms after 1:00pm followed by another period of clearing. Then, around 6:00pm or later another round of storms/rain in central MD with the rain reaching southern MD a bit later. Rain could last through Saturday morning.

THREATS: Gusty wind, hail and rain are the biggest threats.

TROPICS: There is a new area of interest I will be watching, but thus far nothing is out there which could effect MD.

I expect localized watches/warnings to be issued later today. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for updates throughout the day.
