Sunday April 14 2019
A severe storm outbreak in the south yesterday is still heading our way. This morning the large system is bringing a line of thunderstorms across the Gulf Coast to Atlanta. But on the other end, snow is falling from Detroit to Chicago and and around St. Louis. That cold air is adding energy into the jet stream that will keep this system pulsing with destructive potential as it moves in our direction.
Most of today should be quiet, until mid afternoon. Severe storms are possible in our area in two pulses. One this afternoon/evening, then again tonight. These may contains winds over 58 mph, large hail over size of a quarter, and isolated tornadoes. Yes, snow will also follow in the western Maryland mountains Monday morning.
Severe Storm Potential
There is some explaining with this map, but the main issue is that this system has looked stronger which means we have a better chance for severe weather today. Western Maryland is part of the Enhanced Risk, with the most intense line of storms arriving there before midnight.
Most of our region across metro Baltimore to southern PA and Delmarva now are in the Slight Risk for severe storms. We will have two rounds of storms: First mid afternoon, then again overnight after midnight. The good news is that the intense line may weaken overnight when it arrives but still pack a strong punch.
Severe Alert Notes:
IF we get any severe weather alerts, this is what is most important to keep in mind:
A WATCH means it MIGHT happen
A WARNING means it IS HAPPENING NOW! This can be tracked across counties and towns with more precision and need to seek strong shelter.
