Enhanced risk for severe storms in the region on Monday

(Photo, ABC7)

Today is starting out muggy and plenty warm! Temperatures are in the 70s throughout the area. There is a small chance of a few showers across northern Maryland during the first part of the AM Rush. However, our best rain and worst weather will occur during the PM Rush. Very strong thunderstorms will develop as a cold front pushes across the area. It will provide some extra lift in what is a very warm and muggy air mass. With these features coming together, the Storm Prediction Center has placed some of our region in an enhanced risk for severe storms today. The main threat looks to be heavy rain which could lead to flash flooding and damaging wind gusts. Some of these thunderstorms could produce over an inch of rain inside an hour or less.

By Tuesday morning sunshine returns, and we will finally get a break from the humidity! Expect seasonable conditions through Wednesday afternoon.

It gets hot again by Thursday and humidity starts to build back into the area. I expect Thursday to stay dry, but scattered thunderstorms are a possibility starting Friday and heading through next weekend.
