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

A Break From Summer Heat For A Bit

Sunday June 25 We are in a pattern now that flows from Canada. This will drop the humidity but also the temperatures. Today will be noticeably cooler, and the trend will continue for s few more days.

Cindy Gone And So Is Summer For A While

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

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

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

Get Ready For A Heat Wave

Friday June 9 There is a full moon this morning and many schools have their last day. At least as temperatures warm up, the heat wave is not here yet... but it is certainly on the way.  Temperatures will be back near normal as we reach the lower 80s. The coastal storm is departing, and
