A Severe T-Storm Watch is in place for Harford, Anne Arundel, Cecil, Carroll, Howard, Baltimore, Kent, Caroline, Queen Anne's, Frederick, and Baltimore City until 11pm Tuesday. A Severe T-Storm Watch means that conditions are favorable for severe weather to develop while a warning means conditions are imminent. A Flash Flood Watch is also in place for all of the counties mentioned above through Wednesday morning. Storms look to be slow moving creating flooding concerns.
A stationary front continues to straddle the area this afternoon with several rounds of showers and thunderstorms. The bulk of the energy is north but storms do look to become severe based upon lift form the front as well as warm moist air out ahead of the boundary. For that reason the Storm Prediction Center has put our area underneath an Slight Risk for severe weather while portions of New England sit within a Moderate Risk for better dynamics.
Primary threats of strong gusty winds, large hail, and localized flash flooding remain for all areas through this evening.
Timing has now been pushed between 6pm-12am this evening as the front moves in from the north.
We have a few scattered showers and storms out ahead of the main line which could interject in the severity of the main line as it comes through. The severe threat will wane overnight with several more rounds of showers and storms developing for the rest of the workweek. 1-4" of rainfall is expected within that time with localized heavier amounts.
