A Severe T-Storm Watch is in place for Harford, Anne Arundel, Cecil, Carroll, Howard, Baltimore, and Baltimore City until 7pm. Areas not included in the watch but are not limited to severe weather are Queen Anne's, Kent, and Cecil Counties.
A watch means that conditions a favorable for development while a warning means conditions are imminent.
A weak cold front continues to move our way 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 a Slight Risk for severe weather.
Primary threats of strong gusty winds and small hail (Penny to dime size) remain on the table.
Timing still looks to be between 4pm-7pm this afternoon 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. Most of the activity will finish up by 8-9pm tonight.
