Wednesday August 7 2019
This weather outlook includes the risk for severe storms across central Maryland and the eastern Shore. I have been busy with my Maryland Trek all week, but continue to provide morning weather updates. This one is critical to our team as we will be in central Maryland near many of our homes and in the bullseye for severe storms early to mid afternoon. See the radar simulation below for likely timing and tracking.
Severe Storms Criteria:
- Large Hail over 1 inch diameter
- Damaging Winds over 58 mph
- Flash Flooding
- Dangerous and Frequent Cloud to Ground Lighting
A Watch is issued when it ‘may’ happen.
A Warning is issued when it ‘is happening now’. Then counties or towns in the path are advised for residents to take cover.
Maryland Trek 6 Day 4
We will be start our day at Baker Park in Frederick. This is a day off of our feet to ride 57 miles by bike to Eldersburg and lunch street party in Sykesville. Then on through Ellicott City and ending by BWI.

Maryland Trek 6
I hope I can count on your support for my team and the kids we will be hiking and biking for.
Thanks to Smyth Jewelers and the many other sponsors that have us off and running already.
A strong cold front will cross through with storms today.
Severe Storm Risk
Timing is everything to act on the heat of the day. Here we see the greatest risk for storms to turn severe is from Frederick across metro areas and the Bay to the beaches. This will be after 2 PM.

Safety is top importance as these storms cross our region and my team’s route today. We will be watching closely and have precautions in place. I hope you do as well.
Track the drop in temperatures as the storms and cold front cross the region. Our Maryland Trek 6 Day 4 region is highlighted on the map.
After storms today, then next chance will be Southern Maryland on Friday evening. The weekend should clear out for the region.
