A Severe T-Storm Watch is in place for Harford,Frederick, Anne Arundel, Cecil, Carroll, Howard, Baltimore, Kent, Caroline, Queen Anne's, Montgomery, Talbot and Baltimore City until 11pm Wednesday.
A watch means that conditions a favorable for development while a warning means conditions are imminent.
A cold front continues to push toward the area this evening with a round 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 a Slight Risk for severe weather.
Primary threats are strong gusty winds with some localized poor drainage flooding. Timing has now been pushed between now-10pm this evening as the front moves in from the west. 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 cooler conditions come Thursday.
