Severe Weather Blows Through

How about that thunder between midnight and 1am. Here is a snapshot of the regional radar. Here were the remains of the severe weather in Virginia that may have produced a tornado. The official report will come out today. For us it was a split around Baltimore. Westminster had .45" of rain, while Annapolis had 2.69" as of 6am. Baltimore came in with around 1 inch- BWI had 1.47" bringing us very close back to normal for the year.
More is on the way, but the severe weather threat should stay just south of us this morning. For the map of Warnings and Enhanced Radar- please click on the Storm Page Tab- in Full Web Site above.

Most of the storm reports have come in close to midnight:
Stafford, Va (not posted yet)- potential tornado
Near Richmond, VA- Hail Near 1"
Greensboro, NC- Hail up to 1.75", tornado Reports.

Up to 21 tornado reports yesterday in the nation. May is typically the most active tornado month.
Check out the great video from ABC this morning.
Storm Chaser Jim Reed may have experience, but this is pushing the limit. His account was on Good Morning America this morning. Another surveillance camera in Huntsville, AL caught cars getting tossed with ease in a matter of seconds.

Today is going to be a tough one to broad brush. North of Baltimore temperatures have dipped into the low 50s, and may stay there. While mid 60s will linger south of the city and eastern shore- with heavy rain this morning.

Mother's Day
I am in a time crunch today- but the Canadian model is still on target with evening rain for Sunday- a consistent call since Tuesday morning. I will write more on that tomorrow, as the storm may turn us quite chilly on Monday.
