Tuesday August 20 2019

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for much of our area until 9 PM. The National Weather Service has issued this for counties WEST of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and Virginia, but severe storm warnings are in place on Maryland’s Eastern Shore at the time of this post (3:30 PM). So please consider Delmarva under the risk as well.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 9 PM

Risk for winds over 60 mph, large hail over 1 inch in diameter, local flooding, dangerous cloud to ground lighting, and isolated tornados.


Afternoon Satellite
Two areas of concern include the mountains and across Delmarva


Radar Loop

Watch the activity flare up over the two hours from 1:30 PM top 3:30 PM

  • Delmarva storms are drifting to the north.
  • Mountain storms are moving to the east.

Radar Simulation –> slider

The short range modeling has been poor in this pattern lately. The image above was much more developed than the forecast for the 3 PM hour shown in the first image in this slider.

I am only showing this for the progression and development. Expect more activity in central Maryland than shown her based on the initialization shown above… Use this slider for general timing at best.
