Monday will be above normal! Something we haven't said in 8 days. With temperatures in the upper 80s and a stickier air mass moving through, we will see another round of afternoon storms. The warmth and moisture is brought to us by an area of high pressure out in the Atlantic. Winds around it are clockwise, so for us, that means out of the South. There is also a disturbance moving by in the upper levels that could help strengthen any storms that do pop. Thus I think the time we will be seeing these stronger/severe storms will be around dinner time.


Any severe weather we get has the potential of hail or damaging wind. On a scale of 1-5, our threat level is a 1. Flooding will not be a concern Monday as rain totals should be near .10". The severe weather threat diminishes by Monday night, although rain stays with us until a cold front arrives late Wednesday. That will bring drier air for the end of the work week.

Temperatures start to warm up for the weekend back into the 90s... about 5 degrees above average. That is nothing compared to what we are expecting next week though. The Climate Prediction Center thinks Baltimore could be near 20 degrees above normal as we start out July. Start thinking about ways to cool of for Independence Day!
