WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
Showers have been on the increase today becoming more numerous and widespread. Thunderstorms also began to mix in during this afternoon bringing gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and isolated spots of hail.
The entire viewing area will remain under a slight risk for severe weather this evening as a cold front passes through. There is a chance that stronger storms produce damaging winds consequently leading to downed trees and power lines. Heavy rainfall, hail, isolated flooding, and even a funnel cloud are possible. This is especially possible in Garrett, Tucker, and Preston Counties where a severe thunderstorm watch has been issued until 10:00 PM.
It'll be a cool middle of the week with highs only reaching the mid-70s. Clouds will hang around Wednesday along with a spotty shower and a stray rumble of thunder. However, gradual clearing is expected overnight. You can't enjoy the sunshine without a little rain. Fortunately, high pressure builds in for the end of the week bringing much-deserved sunshine! After weeks and weeks of summer thunderstorms, the viewing area can expect a few consecutive dry days!
Temperatures will remain in the mid-70s for Thursday but will be accompanied by mainly sunny skies. Overall, it'll be a beautiful day.
