Thursday May 23 2019

Today is our day to pay close attention to developing weather. The Storm Prediction Center has much of Pennsylvania and central Maryland in the Enhanced Risk for Severe Storms. The prime time wil be between 3 PM and 7 PM. It does not promise you will get storms that turn severe, but it is likely to be nearby.


Severe Storm Qualifier:

  • Winds over 58 mph
  • Large hail over 1 inch diameter
  • Isolated Tornados

Please note that as we get closer, these are potential alerts to be issued.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch: A broad area and window with a 4 to 6 hour time frame. This means it MIGHT happen.

Severe Thunderstorm Warning: A focused area like a county usually with a 30 to 60 minute time frame. This means it IS HAPPENING NOW.

Tornado Warning: A focused area and time frame. This would list towns in a likely path within a 15 to 45 minute window.

After today, we should get a break into the holiday weekend, with a little cool down. Temperature will build back up with afternoon storms Sunday and Memorial Day.

Severe Storm Risk Today

Here is the wider map view of the potential for severe storms today. It is shown to be more likely in PA for storms to form and then drop into Maryland. But the short range models actually show more risk with higher heat in central Maryland.
