Thursday July 1 was expected to be a severe weather day as we broke the heat wave. It definitely performed in central Maryland with a large path of damage reports. Metro Baltimore, Washington, Annapolis, and all the way to the beaches ended up with 1 to 3 inches of rain, and a path of destruction.
If there was a tornado, National Weather Service survey today will determine that later today.
Here is a quick recap including a time-lapse video during the tornado warning, top shelf cloud photos, radar loop, and storm damage maps.
Video: Time Lapse Approach Then Impact
During the Tornado Warning…
This was shot by Tim Grooms storm as it passed by Yellowfin Tuna Restaurant near the Rt. 2 bridge just south of Annapolis.
This was basically the center of the part for the storm.
Extensive wind damage reports and possible tornado touchdown being investigated.
Top Shelf Cloud Photos
There were so many, so I had to cut it down to 10. These are in no particular order.
Thank you to all that shared on social media. I am working on a better way to be able to show more in future storms.
Storm Damage Maps
The core of the storm line prompted multiple Tornado Warnings between Washington DC and Annapolis. The damage maps show a distinct path along Rt. 50 and across Delmarva.
Reminder that a National Weather Service storm survey crew will asses and determine if a tornado had touched the ground.
