Severe weather threatens Maryland.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will have disturbed weather as a front, dropping out of the north (a “backdoor” cold front), will keep us in a chance of showers and t-storms until Thursday, when it will just be a gray, wet, and cool day.
It’s Thanksgiving, and for the many people still preparing to travel, road conditions look much better than Wednesday.
Winter weather strokes. The Baltimore area is seeing its first burst of snowflakes just one day ahead of Thanksgiving. This is after heavy rain soaked the area Tuesday and the first part of Wednesday.
A cold front marched some rather intense weather into our neighborhood early Tuesday morning between 5 and 8 a.m.
Frontal boundary and associated drying has made some decent progress into the area, so it looks like areas along I-95 will just have a shower or thunderstorm in spots Thursday afternoon while areas farther west and northwest are mostly rain-free.
It’s coming and Maryland better get ready. That’s the thrust of a scientific report on sea level rise commissioned by Governor Martin O’Malley.
Storms downed trees and utility wires and left thousands in the dark in Delaware and Maryland.
There is a risk of thunderstorms with damaging winds and a few tornadoes from Wednesday night to Thursday night in parts of the mid-Atlantic and South.
We have a few residual showers and t-storms across the region right now, and we should be allowing for these the next couple of hours as a slow moving cold front is being held back by a weak wave of low pressure that has developed along it.
The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for most of Maryland until 10 p.m. Friday.
A strong cold front will approach from our west bringing us widespread rainfall and the chance for scattered and gusty thunderstorms Thursday night through Friday’s morning commute.
