Tuesday June 23 2020
Here we go again. Anther afternoon and another round of developing showers and thunderstorms. This has been expected, but we have also had a pattern of overachieving with earlier, more widespread, and more potent storms. So once again, we should consider the chance for severe weather that includes damaging wind, large hail, dangerous lightning, and flash flooding.
Flash Flood Watch
NWS has highlighted these areas with the best chance of heavy rain that can lead to flooding. The potential can be up to 2 inches of rain in less than 1 hour. In Maryland, the best chance includes Carroll County and westward. It is possible to get flooding in counties not included here.
Storm Alerts: Severe Thunderstorm or Flooding:
🚨 WATCH= It ‘might’ happen
🚨WARNING = It ‘is happening NOW’
Afternoon Set Up
Hello Dolly! Tropical Storm Dolly was just named in the North Atlantic with winds at 45 mph. This my be academic as it will continue to move away from the US coast.
The cluster of clouds in the Ohio Valley is our weather event today.
Visible Satellite Loop
I didn’t want to miss the chance to show you Dolly spin and the flare up to our west.
Radar: Closer Look
This is a 2 1/2 hour loop up to about 3:30 PM. There are a few lines of storms forming, so like yesterday some areas will have multiple rounds of thunderstorms.

My ‘bonus’ daughter made this map of Maryland a few years ago. We brought it back for needed positivity. Now on her pick of tanks, and this cool Maryland T for men or women.
