Baltimore At Slight Risk For Severe Weather Sunday

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Severe weather is making its way across parts of Maryland.

Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram has more.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop Sunday afternoon and evening and continue into Monday morning.

“Potential impacts for our region include damaging winds, hail, and heavy downpours that may lead to flash flooding,” Ingram said.

TIMING:
Expect storms to develop around and near the I-95 corridor between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Ingredients available in our atmosphere Sunday afternoon and evening should support a few organized clusters and lines of fast-moving, strong to severe thunderstorms. For now, the primary threat for the greater Baltimore region will be the potential for damaging straight-line winds, with potentially heavy downpours as a secondary. Heavy downpours may lead to localized flash-flooding. Highest probability of heavy downpours will be east of the I-95 corridor with anywhere from 0.5″-1.5″ of rainfall possible through Monday afternoon.

IMPACTS:
– Strong, damaging winds
– Heavy downpours
– Flash flooding (best possibility Sunday night and Monday a.m. once ground is saturated)
– Hail
