Rain showers have spread north to PA with steady rain in southern Maryland and Delmarva. More rain will arrive tonight into the first half of Sunday. It may be heaviest Sunday morning.  The main issue with this storm for our region will be the high winds. As the storm gets closer, we now have an upgrade for winds with near certainty.

Considering the soggy ground and recent snow/freeze/thaw cycle, the root systems of trees have been weakened. There is a legitimate risk of trees falling over and power outages.

High Wind Warning and Wind Advisory

I did not pick the color pallet here. You can thank The National Weather Service for that.

High Wind Warning: Winds will be 25 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph. The highest winds will be over 1,500 Ft elevation

  • In Maryland: 1 PM Sunday to 10 AM Monday
  • In Pennsylvania: 1 PM Sunday to 1 PM Monday

Wind Advisory: This is the upgrade for central Maryland I expected and mentioned this morning.

  • Steady winds = 20 to 35 mph.
  • Gusts up to 55 mph
