Severe Thunderstorm Update 3PM Monday June 19

3 PM June 19 The line of severe storms continues to move east with the cold front. Now that we have a distinct line, the short range modeling can do a better job tracking it.  So I have a new radar simulation below. As of 3 PM, there was a Severe Thunderstorm Warning from Leesburg

Getting Busy With Severe Storms And Tropics

Sunday June 18 This Fathers Day edition will be brief because I am anxious to spend the day with my boys.  The day will be warm, humid, and much like yesterday pop spotty storms. We will watch them flare up in the mountains, and some could spill east... But the real action for us will

The Problem Plotting Short Term Storms

Saturday June 17 Will it rain or storm by you today? We have started the day with high humidity and warm temps... and we have showers in the forecast. I stand by that. The common question I get this time of year is about timing and tracking storms around particular events. I can identify the

Showers Return And Heat Builds For Fathers Day

Friday June 16 We couldn't hold on to the cooler air for long. The front is on the way back through today and bringing some morning showers with it. A larger band of storms will build this evening and that might impact your BBQ and the Orioles game.  Following that very wet May, Baltimore has
