What a difference! The front that moved into Maryland yesterday has slowed down significantly, and is still draped along I-95 this evening. There are rounds of rain and thunderstorms along and ahead of the front, while much drier air has moved in behind it.
We had a brief severe thunderstorm warning for Prince George’s, Calvert, and Charles County this evening. There may be another warning or two, but this is not going to be a widespread severe weather event. Most of the Eastern Shore is just getting a needed dose of rain with occasional rounds of thunder, while there are some stronger (but still below severe level) thunderstorms in southern Maryland and along the western shore of the Bay.
The front will slowly continue to eek off to the east. That will keep some showers and thunderstorms around for the Eastern Shore tomorrow, while drier air starts to win out in Baltimore and the metro area. The dry air will remain around through Monday, before a new storm moves our way starting Tuesday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible with the next storm system later Tuesday into Wednesday.
Temperatures will remain slightly above the average of 86 degrees the next few afternoons, and may even spike up to near 90 degrees Tuesday ahead of the front. When the next storm moves through, it will drop us back to the mid 80s Wednesday and Thursday.
Another storm will move our way later in the week. It’s exact timing will depend on how quickly this next storm gets out of here. Right now, we are thinking that it probably arrives Friday.
In the tropics, statements have been discontinued on tropical depression No. 7 as of today.
