The Maryland Transportation Authority has reopened all lanes on the Bay Bridge after a line of severe storms passed through the area.
An unusually massive line of storms packing hail, lightning and tree-toppling winds Wednesday could affect more than one in five Americans as it reaches Maryland from Iowa.
As an upper-level disturbance continues to march eastward we remain in a moist and unstable environment.
While there could be a thunderstorm in a few spots this afternoon or evening, the bulk of today’s late activity should occur north of the Mason-Dixon Line where most of the energy is concentrated.
The leading edge of some much warmer and more humid air is slowly advancing through the mid-Atlantic. The combination of any breaks of sunshine along with increasing dew points and temps could fire up an isolated shower or t-storm by the afternoon and evening so we will be keeping a very close eye on that.
Highs Tuesday should top out in the low/mid 60s while a cool air mass is still in place.
Officials say the historic Harford County Circuit Courthouse in Bel Air was damaged when a tree fell on it during a thunderstorm.
We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
The regional radar is showing a few pockets of heavy rain occurring in the Delmarva Region early Thursday, which could cause some minor flooding issues.
There was a lull in activity earlier this morning as a dry slot of air wrapped its way into the circulation of the area of the pesky low pressure system over the mid-Atlantic.
A slow moving area of low pressure brought us a band of widespread rainfall Tuesday morning, and there is still more to come as we move throughout the day.
The combination of some very light winds and the ever present marine influence early Friday morning has led to the formation of patchy fog. With the wind out of the south expected to pick up during midday, any low visibility issues, while isolated, should disappear.
