Thursday March 18 2021
The large storm complex dominant the eastern US has brought us bands of rain all day, but we remain on the cold side of things. That is why we should not have a risk of severe storms in our region. However there will be some increased lift ahead of the Low Pressure passing through central Maryland, which will bring more heavy rain, and a slight chance for thunder in some areas.
Afternoon Surface Weather
The large circulation located over Illinois, but the bulk of energy is with the line of storms from central Florida to North Carolina.
Severe Storm Outlook
A ‘Marginal’ Risk included Southern Maryland in this morning’s report.
At 2 PM, most of the region remained in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Slightly warmer air was located from Salisbury to southern Delaware. It is not much, but might be just enough to help support some thunderstorms there this evening.
