After a round of strong overnight thunderstorms, another round of thunderstorms is moving across the state this evening. There have been several severe thunderstorm warnings, following this round of thunderstorms as it moved from southern PA down across Maryland and eventually over the Bay to the Eastern Shore. The biggest threats in these thunderstorms are damaging winds and hail. We will continue to update you on the current warnings at the top of the home page, as well as the tv side.
A severe thunderstorm watch is also in effect for all of Maryland west of the Bay through midnight. There are some new thunderstorms firing in southern PA that are moving south this evening. They don’t have any warnings with them currently, but we will let you know if that changes.
The cold front producing all of these thunderstorms will slowly creep across the area tonight before stalling out over southern Maryland tomorrow. This stalled front will be south of Baltimore, but still close enough for the chance of a shower or thunderstorm with most of the action over southern Maryland. Most of the day should be fine for 4th of July plans, although you can always check the radar on WJZ.com if you have plans going on outside of our regular news hours tomorrow – where we will be tracking everything for you. The front will remain stalled in the same general area on Tuesday, keeping the chance of a shower or thunderstorm around.
A new storm system will move our way Thursday. It will take over the stalled out front. There could be a shower or thunderstorm ahead of the front on Wednesday, with more widespread coverage of scattered showers and thunderstorms Thursday and Friday as the front moves through. All the while, it’s going to remain warm and muggy this whole week. Highs will be within a few degrees of 90 each day.
Have a safe and happy 4th everyone!
