The National Weather Service has issued Severe Thunderstorm Watch until midnight for Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Cecil, Charles, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s and Washington counties and Baltimore City.

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes would be the primary threats, though heavy downpours and localized flooding are possible.

The best window for us to see these storms would be heading into the late afternoon and evening hours.

For the most part, we should stay dry for much of the day.

Our forecast calls for an afternoon high near 88 degrees, though it might feel warmer due to the humidity.

That will usher in cooler air and lower humidity just in time for our weekend.
