Chalk another one up for Atmospheric Memory. Overnight showers and storms led to flash flooding in metro Baltimore in the same general area that was hit hardest in almost every event in June. There has been some variation of about 10 miles. This time the focus was between Towson and Kingsville, basically around the beltway between I-83 and I-95. Parts of Parkville received 3 inches of rain, and more is on the way. So flooding is a consideration with the severe storm risk today.
Severe Storm Outlook Maps:
There is a big change in the timing for our storms today. My last report showed mid day and early afternoon, however the energy will split north and south of central Maryland with that cluster of storms. So early afternoon will be mostly dry with the focus later on. The upper level winds will be more supportive to bring storms our way tonight. At that point we lose the heat of the day but surface winds from the Bay might help support the system which shows yet another hit on that same local target zone north of Baltimore. The threat for an isolated tornado, large hail, and damaging wind will still be present.
