Bottoming Out Then Bouncing Back This Weekend

Tuesday June 27 A few rain showers and more clouds today will keep temperatures well below normal. Highs will range from the mid 70s to near 80ºF, which is hardly pool weather. The core of the cool air in the atmosphere is overhead and may trigger some isolated thundershowers this afternoon. By Wednesday morning many

Cindy Gone And So Is Summer For A While

June 24 The ghost of former Tropical Storm Cindy came through on schedule this morning. The radar showed the intense line of rain that looked just like a strong cold front moving through Baltimore around 5 AM. Here is a quick look at the Doppler Radar as it passed by. Now we set the stage

Severe Thunderstorms And Timing Ghost Of Cindy

Friday June 23 The former Tropical Storm Cindy is not here yet but already has charged the atmosphere. The combination of that and a cold front has prompted the severe thunderstorms today, but we need to look at this event in two parts: Part 1: The slight risk (which means greater chance) is in a

Morning Rain The A Little Bit From Cindy Saturday

Friday June 23 The remnants of former Tropical Storm Cindy are near Memphis this morning. There is a small circulation interacting with a much larger cold front. The rain we have this morning is not directly from the storm but a hint of how it wil impact us. A brief period of rain that will

Severe Storm Outlook Monday June 19

Monday June 19 Buckle up for a bumpy ride. The day is starting off feeling like afternoon heat and humidity. The atmosphere is unstable and a strong cold front will trigger a round of severe storms this afternoon with the target on our region. These storms have the potential for large hail over 1 inch

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

Still Humid But Cooling Down With Isolated Storms

June 14 Today is Flag Day and there will be some push from the wind as cooler air begins to move in. A cold front will arrive from the north and tip off some showers, but it will not be widespread for us. Look for some showers to develop between noon and 2 PM then

One More Day Then Heat Wave Breaks

Tuesday June 13 Today will be the hottest day of this stretch. Baltimore hit 94ºF on Monday, which was not a record, but Washington DC did set one with a high of 95ºF. Today we crank up the heat another notch or two. The record mark for BWI will be 97ºF set in 1956.  Then

Heat Wave About To Begin Then More Rain

Saturday June 10 A band of showers in central Pennsylvania this morning will spread clouds into Maryland. But this is al that stands from the heat wave about to develop.  This doppler radar image at 8 AM shows the spotty nature of the rain, so when you compare it to the first image in the

2 More Days Of Spring Then Summer Heat Wave

Thursday June 8 This morning temperatures dropped into the 40s in a few places, highlighting the chill of this air mass.  But we are about the turn the corner.  The observations at 6:30 AM already showed some warming from the early sun, so this is not the coolest of the day, as BWI briefly reached
