A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for portions of western Maryland, including Allegany, Frederick and Washington counties. The main threat this evening will be damaging wind gusts and heavy downpours capable of producing flash-flooding. Scattered thunderstorms will then move into central Maryland between 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a few lingering around into the overnight hours.
Thunderstorms will be more numerous on Monday and Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center has our neighborhood under the “slight risk” category for severe weather 8 a.m. Monday to 8 a.m. Tuesday. Main threats will consist of heavy downpours, damaging winds, and hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out late Monday. Now is the time to make sure that you have a way to receive weather alerts, whether it be via social media, cell phone, a NOAA weather radio, or any other outlet. Make sure that you are prepared and aren’t caught by surprise.
This strong-to-severe weather will arrive ahead of an approaching cold front that will bring us a welcomed change of lower humidity and comfortable temperatures by the middle of the week.
