Happy Easter

With the exception of a few predawn sprinkles and showers, Easter Sunday morning turned out quite nice with sunshine and mild temperatures.

The mid morning NASA satellite image shows the nearly cloud free conditions over the Chesapeake Bay region. The cloudiness to the northwest of the Bay is associated with a frontal boundary that will likely affect the area later Sunday.

The National Weather Service map above shows the frontal boundary position Sunday morning. The Map below shows the forecast map for later Sunday.

Waves of energy moving along the front could very well stir up some thunderstorm activity later in the day Sunday.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has identified the area along and ahead of the front as having a slight risk for severe weather. This includes northern Maryland.

The Precipitation Accumulation forecast map indicates that the heaviest rains will stretch from the Ozark Mountains into the lower Ohio River Valley. The Chesapeake Bay area could receive around .25 inches of rain in any storm activity that may develop.

Check in later on wbaltv.com for updates and join me tonight at 6:00pm and 11:00pm for the forecast for the week ahead.
