Well, life is getting active on the weather front this week as a slow-moving cold front is trying to bust through. A hot and humid air mass will give us a chance of widespread thunderstorms Tuesday-Thursday.
It is HUMID today. HUMID. (After last winter no complaints). But it is HUMID.
Trees down, power outages and fires sparked by lightning. Wednesday night’s storms packed a powerful punch.
Ready for summer. It begins later this week but will feel like it Monday through mid-week with temps in the low to mid 90s.
The round of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday led to more localized flooding.
By this afternoon we will see clouds moving in, and between dinner and bedtime, some showers/t-storms will move through the area.
Increased instability and humid conditions will put Baltimore at risk for a shower or thunderstorm Monday, particularly during the afternoon and evening hours.
Another sticky morning with more sun than Wednesday has allowed temperatures to be a bit warmer.
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.
Storms downed trees and utility wires and left thousands in the dark in Delaware and Maryland.
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.
While all the news isn’t good, that doesn’t mean it is all bad, either.
