July 17 Heat Advisory Severe Storm Risk And Flash Flood Watch

Uncategorized

Saturday July 17 2021

Today is the last day of the current heat wave, and it is going to go out with a bang. Yesterday, Baltimore hit 98ºF and we may match it today. But the Heat Index will be 105ºF+.

Storms will erupt mid afternoon through evening. There is a risk they turn severe. With ample moisture AND some slow movers, rainfall could   push 2”/hour rates. As a result a Flash Flood Watch is in place as well.

See the radar simulation below for most likely timing in your location as this develops in the mountains at lunchtime, and reaches the beaches by midnight. 

Weather Alerts Today

Heat Advisory: Where Index Values = 105ºF+

Severe Storm Outlook

  • Primarily Damaging Wind Over 60 mph, slight risk for large hail and isolated tornadoes.
  • Marginal Risk= There will be storms, but a lower chance they turn ‘severe’

Flash Flood Watch: 2 PM to 2 AM Sunday

Rainfall rates may exceed 2 inches per hour

 

Morning Surface Weather

The heat dome will be forced out with a strong cold front. The timing aligning with the peak heat of the day will maximize the storm potential.

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
