Thursday June 4 2020

After the derecho hit Pennsylvania and New Jersey yesterday, there is heightened anxiety for storms today. The energy will be shifting south and now puts central Maryland in its sights for severe weather. The outlook for Severe Storms includes the potential for damaging winds, large hail, dangerous lightning, flash flooding, and an isolated tornado.

Well to our south, Tropical Storm Cristobal is weakening after making landfall on Mexico. It will move back over the water of the Gulf of Mexico and head towards the Louisiana coast this weekend. Full forecast below.

Severe Storm Outlook

This threat includes Washington, Annapolis, Baltimore, and north into central Pennsylvania again.

Alert Reminders: A Watch means it may happen; A Warning means it is happening now!
