There is a risk of severe storms across much of the Mid-Atlantic, Southward into parts of the southeast U.S. later today and early tonight. Above is the latest severe weather outlook from the SPC in Norman, OK. Severe storms are forecast within the yellow shaded area on the image.
An upper-level weather disturbance and surface frontal boundary will combine to produce scattered to numerous thunderstorms across the severe weather outlook area this afternoon into this evening. Some of the storms are likely to become severe, with large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes possible.
The greatest chance of an isolated tornado will reside within the green and brown shaded areas on the following image, which includes the Baltimore/Washington D.C. areas:
