Stormy Saturday

The storm system that produced all of the severe storms in the South and heavy snows in the Midwest finally reached the Mid Atlantic region Saturday. Several clusters of severe thunderstorms developed late in the afternoon. Lightening and thunder reports were minimal. The main feature was wind and hail.

Wind gusts that ranged from 50 to more than 70 mph were reported across the region.  

Reports of damage to trees and power lines were numerous across the area. There were also several reports of buildings being damaged by trees, blowing debris and the wind itself.

Gusty winds will continue overnight. A High Wind Warning is in effect for the northern tier of counties in Maryland with a Wind Advisory in effect elsewhere.

 By the way, don’t forget to set your clocks AHEAD one hour. Sunday is the first day of daylight saving time.
