Tuesday September 5
Warm winds and a hazy sky today are indicators that the weather we have will not last much longer. A cold front is approaching form the west and will arrive with the potential for thunderstorms. There is a slight risk of storms turning severe near and north of the Maryland/Pennsylvania line. Only a marginal risk across central Maryland through this evening.
The cold front will stall as a developing area of Low Pressure will ride along it and bring more rain Wednesday. At that time, temperatures will be cooler and most of us will spend the day in the 60s. Here is a quick look.
Note: Hurricane Irma has winds now up to 185 mph, making it tied with the strongest Atlantic Hurricane on record. I will have new information in my next report by 5 PM. See the prior update here.

More Rain And Some Storms In The Evening
The storm will move out and we get a chance to dry out, just as we track Hurricane Irma getting closer to the weekend hit on the southern US.
