Central Maryland 8:15
AM 7/21 – Lighting up the night! Who else saw some epic lightning last
night? From my location in Bel Air, I was able to get a few shots
looking south to some impressive storm cells. If you have any pictures
of the lightning in your area please feel free to share them with us!
As always, when taking pictures of storms, be sure that you are in a
safe place from the lightning and the storm before you start.
TODAY – Instead of pushing through, the cold front has yet again stalled
north of us which will keep an unsettled pattern in place. Today will
be partly sunny, but some scattered thunderstorms are possible mainly
later in the day. Today will finally be cooler, but still highs will hit
the upper 80s (not much of a relief), and humidity will remain just as
high as it has been.
Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy through the overnight with some
scattered thunderstorms still possible. It’ll be mild and muggy once
again with lows in the lower 70s.
MONDAY – To start off the
new work week, we will see mostly cloudy skies with some partial
sunshine possible. It’ll be warm and humid with highs in the mid to
upper 80s. Again there is the possibility for some scattered showers and
TUESDAY – Tuesday will be quite similar to
Monday with highs in the mid to upper 80s, under mostly cloudy to partly
sunny skies. Scattered thunderstorms are possible once again.
LOOKING AHEAD – The oppressive heat is gone, but now we are right back
into the stormy pattern. The theme of the week is for scattered
thunderstorms, humid conditions, and highs in the mid to upper 80s. Stay
tuned and have a wonderful day!
NWS has reissued theHEAT ADVISORY for the region with the exception of
Montgomery County from noon through 7PM Saturday. High temperatures
will top out in the lower 90s with heat index values around 105°. A
cold front will be on the move towards the area, and this will give us a
shot at showers and thunderstorms late in the afternoon into the
evening. The front will stall near the region early next week, and that
could prolong the chance for wet weather.
Sunday will bring changes to the area. Finally, a break in this heat. A
cool front will drop into the area on Saturday causing a good chance of
afternoon and evening storms across the area. The cool front will drop
to the South and East of the area by Sunday. There will still be a
chance of showers and storms due to the close proximity of the front but
the temperatures will cool down on Sunday. Highs on Saturday will be in
the low 90s with highs on Sunday in the mid 80s. Lows on Saturday Night
will be in the upper 60s.
0915, 20 July TODAY: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Sun, high, mid-90s. TONIGHT: Scattered thunderstorms early, perhaps 0.25". Clouds, low in the low 70s. SUNDAY: Showers and thunderstorms in the PM, perhaps 0.25". Clouds, high upper 80s. Advisor Brad
