The brighter green spot at the tip of the arrow along side an area of red is an indicator of rotating winds at an increased velocity. This “couplet” moved into south central Carroll County over a twenty minute period before dissipating.

The front that generated Monday’s storms has moved east but another system will be approaching late Wednesday into Thursday. Another round of storms is likely in that time period and the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has targeted the Mid Atlantic region with the potential for a slight risk of severe storms.
