What a night! There are many reports of hail and power outages, but no confirmed tornadoes. I saw video of a possible funnel in Owings Mills, but that's it. But it was close. Just so you know, the tornado warnings issued last night were based on the radar readings indicating tight rotation in the clouds. Warnings are issued either due to the radar showing rotation (may or may not be a tornado), or because someone actually sees a tornado. Last night was the former. But I was out in the light show watching the clouds.
Today we have another chance at severe weather later in the afternoon, but more so for those along and east of I-95. But keep an eye on the sky where ever you are this afternoon. Our next chance for storms is Friday afternoon as another cold front approaches. More details on that later.
