Maryland storms Saturday

By: cws6196 , 3:37 PM GMT on September 08, 2012

As I mentioned earlier, storms are probable later today as a cold front moves into the area. This is a strong front and will be interacting with the heat and humidity already in place. As the sun continues to warm the day, the storms will have more fuel.

TIMING: I think most of Central MD will start to see storms after 3:00pm, although rain could start a bit earlier. Those in Southern MD should be dry until closer to 5:00pm or so. The rain should last past midnight with severe potential waning after 7:00pm.

LOCATIONS: All of MD is in the impact zone, but those in Northern Baltimore Co, Harford and Cecil counties have a higher chance for more severe weather.

THREATS: The main threat is damaging wind and hail. Frequent lightning is also probable. There is a chance for tornadoes, more so along the MD/PA border, but can form anywhere in MD. When these storms start, please take them seriously.

TROPICS: No threats to MD.

Thus far there are no watches/warnings issued but I expect that to change. I will try to keep you updated, but localized warnings will most likely come quickly and frequently.
