Friday August 27 2021

Heat and humidity will get extra forcing today to produce strong storms. The expected heavy rain from slow moving storms may produce local flooding. That is what prompted the Flash Flood Watch for parts of our region. Local downpours can produce over 1 inch of rain in a hurry. Any cell can drop dangerous lightning.

My son has baseball practice this evening, so I will be watching closely. If you have afternoon or evening plans, I hope this will help for a short range look.

In this post is a quick comparison of two short range models compared to the live radar widget below. 

Afternoon Satellite Snapshot

A distinct circulation can been seen rotating through western Maryland this afternoon. I wanted to highlight it here, so you can spot it on the animation below.



Visible Satellite Loop

Cloud circulation is moving north-northeast… while the entire system is pushing to the east.



Doppler Radar Snapshot

The activity has been rapidly developing in the heat of the afternoon. Individual cells are moving north-northeast… while the entire system is pushing to the east.

More cells will be firing up and filling this in more over the next few hours.

NAM 3 Km

This model shows a robust line of storms peaking over central Maryland and southern PA between 3 to 6 PM.

I’ve highlighted the split movement of the core cells.

HRRR Model

This model is less impressive, and less likely… But I wanted to include if for contrast.
