Monday July 26 2021

As the heat is climbing back up, there has also been an increase in strong storms.  On Sunday evening, a band of rain formed in southern Pennsylvania, and drifted southward into northern Maryland close to midnight.

Radar Recap: 10 PM Sunday to Midnight



Heat Lightning

From a distance, it put in quite a light show. Sarah Dingle Clippinger saw the tops of these clouds light up in York County. What many call heat lightning, is actually regular lightning from a storm far enough away that you can not hear the thunder or get the rain.

Diana Coates captured the rain, wind, and light show under one of those storms the reached northeastern Maryland. 




Morning Surface Weather

A cold front is still nearby, which may help spawn more storms later today, but once gain the forcing is low.  So our chance will be about 20%  late afternoon and evening. The sky will be mixing with plenty of clouds with that front nearby.

The focus will slip south, and may keep the storms active before sunrise by the beaches.

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
