Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram with details.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the mid-Atlantic, including the entire state of Maryland, under an elevated risk for severe weather.
A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for Carroll, Harford and Baltimore County until 12:30 a.m. Monday.
The biggest threats are damaging winds, large hail, a few isolated weak tornadoes and heavy rainfall that may lead to localized flash-flooding.
BGE is mobilizing field crews and other employees in advance of the forecasted storms.
“The safety of our customers and our employees is our top priority and we encourage our customers to take the time now to have essential items and information ready and available prior to the impact of today’s forecasted storm,” said Stephen J.
