5:18 pm
has been this afternoon, there's even a severe thunderstorm warning there in northwest maryland right now. not near us of course. but this system is pushing toward us. here's my concern. there are two of them. one is the shifting winds, as this system approaches. the other is a tropical connection, all the way to the gulf of mexico, meaning there's a lot of water with this and when it comes on through, some of the rainshowers are going to be torrential downpours, could even cause some minor street flooding when they come on through. we need the heavy rain, just don't want the severe weather that goes along with it. the scattered showers that start to erupt and that's something we'll be watching closely, because, as these storms come toward uses that's the warm front, ahead of the warm front, winds coming in from the east and northeast. behind it, from the south, an up above us in the atmosphere, all during the morning, winds will be coming from the southwest. that's all different directions. when you have different directions, at different levels in our atmosphere, you start to get spinning and you could have any one of these thunderstorms tomorrow morning to start to
5:19 pm
not zero either. most times, we can see not a chance of a tornado tomorrow, with we're dealing with severe weather especially with different winds and different levels of our atmosphere, we have to throw that into the forecast and remind you to stay alert tomorrow morning especially during the morning, when jason is here telling you what's happening with these storms as they come on through. heavy rain, almost undoubtedly with these storms tomorrow. it's just about any time, particularly in the morning and again in the afternoon. we'll get to that next. lunchtime temperatures, upper 70 afternoon. because this front lifts to our north, that puts us in what we call the warm sector, the southerly wind instead of the easterly winds and that really starts to ramp up the humidity and the temperature. any sun you gets will cook you fast and develop these strong thunderstorms that make it on through and travel on through during the afternoon and evening hours tomorrow. so the severe risk goes into the evening, starts to wane later tomorrow night, and those push on out of here. things look better for you by tomorrow night and into
