WATCHES ISSUED: Severe Storms & More Flooding


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 10pm Monday. 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 11PM tonight. Storms look to be slow moving creating flash flooding concerns. 

A powerful cold front continues to blast toward the area this evening 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 until the front passes later on.

Primary threats of strong damaging winds, small hail, and localized flash flooding remain for all areas through this evening.Timing for the storms still sits between Now-11pm 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 a dry and less humid weekend ahead.
