Evening thunderstorms around Baltimore and Washington:
At 8 p.m. this evening, weather radar indicates several thunderstorm cells in the Baltimore and Washington areas. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect around the region due to recent heavy rains from thunderstorms. Although all locations will not be impacted by storms, some locations will experience strong winds, heavy rain, localized flooding, dangerous winds, and hail. Thunderstorm activity should dissipate during the overnight hours, except across southern Maryland the lower Maryland Eastern Shore.
A frontal boundary just to the east of Baltimore and Washington will become stationary near southern Maryland this afternoon. Our proximity to the front will result in varying amounts of clouds and sunshine with a chance of thundershowers during the afternoon and evening hours. The front will move a bit more to the south and east on Friday, resulting in more sunshine but still a slight chance of a thundershower. However, the front is expected to lift back northward as a warm front on Saturday and ushering in more humid conditions for the weekend with highs in the upper 80s on Saturday and Sunday. There is a slight chance of a thunderstorm over the weekend as well.
