Thursday August 6 2020

Many people woke up early with lightning and thunder rolling through central Maryland. Many severe thunderstorm warnings were issued, which is rare in the morning. This is part of a front that is draped across the region and it will provide the more storms this afternoon after 3 PM to midnight.

Alert Reminder:

  • Watch = It might happen
  • Warning = It is happening now!

Did you know?

There is a new look to this website, new logo, and new interactive weather pages. This is just the first phase of upgrades to give you more info and make it easier to view. I posted a bunch of links for you to explore below.


Morning Radar Snapshot

There were severe thunderstorm warnings this morning. That’s a hint that the storms later today may also produce local flooding rain, dangerous lightning, and large hail.

Let’s look at that storm in motion between 4 AM and 6:30 AM



Flash Flood Watch Until 8 AM Friday

Morning Set Up

This front is the focus for the storms, and Low Pressure to the south will move along it adding more energy.  This boundary is now expected to be a little farther north, which will allow temps to be warmer that I showed in my report last night.
