The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch until 5 p.m. for the following locations around Chesapeake Bay: Baltimore, Washington, Annapolis, Chestertown MD, Easton MD, Dover DE, Georgetown DE, Salisbury MD, southern Maryland, Richmond VA, and Norfolk VA.

A Tornado Watch is issued by the National Weather Service when conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes. A warning is issued when a tornado has been observed on ground and/or on radar and will immediately impact a particular location.

Although severe weather is not expected at all of the above locations, conditions are favorable for severe weather. The area that is most likely to experience severe weather is southern Maryland into southeast Virginia where current temperatures are in the upper 60s to lower 70s and the atmosphere is more unstable. Nonetheless, isolated severe thunderstorms may develop farther to the north across central Maryland.
