The storm in the way in has a tremendous amount of energy with it. The severe storm threat along the Gulf Coast is riding a fast jet stream our way.  The one good thing is that this will arrive for us around sunrise, which is usually the coolest time of the day. That may dampen the impact but we will be on the warm side of this system. A squall line will develop overnight and move though our area with very gust winds and possible thunder.

The Wind Advisory is for winds gusting to 50 mph. The latest forecast suggests that is very likely for a large area. See the timeline and more notes below.

The Flood Watch is for rain that could reach between 1 and 2 inches overnight and into Thursday.

This map now includes Delaware and Maryland Eastern Shore counties under the Wind Advisory
