Did thunder get you up this morning? There was a cluster of rain with pockets of lightning and thunder the rolled through Central Maryland during the 8 AM hour as seen on these Doppler Radar snapshots.  Carroll County, south through Virginia, and the Maryland Eastern Shore had boomers recently.



Morning Temperatures 

Morning Surface Weather 

This wave of heavy rain may be the bulk of it for much of Maryland today.  The next line of rain should pivot to northern Maryland and southern PA. But the attention will be in the Midwest where a severe storm outbreak is likely later today.

This large storm complex is producing Blizzard Conditions near Denver Colorado this morning where  up to 6 inches of snow is possible.


Severe Storm Outlook

A Moderate Risk of Severe Storms in Illinois today. This region will see supercell storm complex with large hail (over golf ball size) and long track tornadoes.

The slight risk extends to the Ohio Valley due to the later timing of storm lines at night. But on our side of the mountains only some non-severe thunderstorms expected, like we have seen this morning.

The edge of much warmer air will move in to our western and southern zones.  We all should jump into the 70s and 80s tomorrow.
