Although all locations in central Maryland will not be impacted by storms, some locations will experience strong winds in excess of 40 miles per hour, 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.

Weather Summary

High pressure over the northeast United States will provide a warm, southerly flow over the Mid-Atlantic states today. The high will keep the area mostly sunny this morning but a warm front will move from south to north across the area, producing a few clouds and isolated thundershowers this afternoon. Moving into next week, warm and humid conditions are expected on Monday and Tuesday followed by a strong cold front that will produce widespread thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon and evening.
