451 PM EDT Thu Jul 11 2019

Harford MD-Baltimore MD-
451 PM EDT Thu Jul 11 2019


At 450 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy
rain across the warned area. Up to three inches of rain have already
fallen in the Kingsville and Joppa areas, and south of Bel Air.
Flash flooding is already occurring with roads closed, and
additional torrential rain is imminent. This is an extremely
dangerous situation! Please do not drive into areas where water
covers the road!!

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Middle River, Cockeysville, Millers Island, Back River, Dundalk,
Towson, Bel Air South, Essex, Parkville, Bel Air North, Carney, Perry
Hall, Rosedale, Rossville, Timonium, White Marsh, Fallston, Bowleys
Quarters, Riverside and Hampton.


Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Move to higher ground now. Act quickly to protect your life.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.

The T&L with that first round was some of the best this season. Wasn't much of it, but it meant business when it unloaded. Wind didn't exactly bowl me over though. With all the storms in my immediate vicinity this season, only one that I can recall has had decent wind. Cloudbursts, hail, possible wall cloud, yeah, but I don't think IMBY I've approached severe wind criteria (58+) all season. Notoriously difficult to judge, of course, (well, for me at least, even with my Skywarn training) without a weather station/anemometer.

Western sky was looking ominous there for a while with round 2, but nasomuch now. Still hearing distant thunder. I always love daytime storms where you hear the thunder half an hour before the event actually hits, the thunder getting louder as the storm approaches. Subjectively speaking, that kind of evolution doesn't seem to happen as much as it did when I was younger, but I'm sure that's just observer/misty memory bias. 

And I'm a sucker for days with 3 or more rounds of storms. I'd almost rather have three rounds of decent storms instead of one big one (unless we're talking derecho or June 2008 -- which had multiple rounds anyway -- or July 2010).

Tons of lightning and booming thunder here now. Will significant rain actually fall? Probably less than a 50% chance based on outcomes over the last couple weeks here.

Radar really blossoming just to my south and west. Hopefully even the leftover crumbs will add up to a half inch or so.

That initial cell was really noisy and impressive electrically, but the heavy rain passed to my SW. Picked up a tenth of an inch.
