Stormy Wednesday Possible

EVENING UPDATE … June 16

By late afternoon the warm front shown below had still not pushed east of the Bay and the cold front was just moving into West Virginia. The combination of a relatively thick cloud deck and southeast winds held temperatures in the 70s (BWI high temperature 79). Rain showers produced only .05 inches of rain at BWI and .46 inches at the Maryland Science Center as of 5:00pm. While severe storms can’t be ruled out, it will be tough for the atmosphere to be destabilized enough to sustain a significant outbreak as the cold front approaches, especially after sunset. Thunderstorm activity could still produce some strong wind gusts, lightening and locally heavy downpours until the front moves east of the area.

A cold front is approaching the area and some stormy, maybe severe, weather is possible.

Scattered showers in the morning and mid day have been associated with the passage of the warm front noted on the map above. As the cold front approaches during the afternoon and evening a more volatile atmosphere will allow for an increased threat of storms generating damaging winds with smaller threat for hail and tornadoes.
