October 16 Waterspout Among Top 10 Chesapeake Bay Storm Photos

October 16 2021

A strong cold front was expected to bring us from the 80s to the 40s. With that transition, a line of strong to severe storms was forecast to cross central Maryland between 2 and 4 PM. That was my call on timing in my morning report.  It turns out, that was almost exactly on target with a spectacular cloud display in the Annapolis area around 3 PM. Here is a look at my Top 10 pick of photos including a few close ups of the waterspout from today’s weather event in that part o our region. 

At the bottom of this post, a look at what passed by.

Storm Reports

The NOAA outlook has a better chance for severe storms Northeast of Baltimore, but most of the action was across the southern half of the Chesapeake Bay. This included the waterspout.
