2021 Mid-Atlantic Severe Weather - General Discussion


Recommended Posts

Had to call the cat in before the storms get here on the eastern shore. Can’t imagine the poor thing stuck out there in all this hail!




Starting to hear some thunder and wind is picking up. Looks like the Baltimore cell is going to pass slightly below us.

Not quite severe but pretty intense -- very heavy rain with lots of lightning, a couple gusts to about 50, and a brief shot of small hail.  I always get nervous with hail because it always starts small.  I have bad memories of two monster hailstorms in Kettering, MD in 1978 and Orlando, FL in 1992. 

I’m not sure but that 1978 one is the one I think my client who had gone to work at AC airport told me he picked up the very tops of our cells at 70,000.’

Could see some flooding problems in the Beltway with the trajectory of these storms. Sort of expecting a FFW.

you were right, a FFW was issued a short while ago:

Rolling in here now. Wind is pretty impressive. Lots of T&L.
Lightning has the whole western sky lit up in rehoboth, with the stars out. Dog kennel across the road from me all the dogs just started barking...maybe they can hear the thunder before we do
