Severe storms with tornadoes and warnings are popping up in clusters in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Watches have been updated and expanded. This is a night of Hyper Vigilance and deserves your attention! THIS IS A serious threat. Please stay tuned to TV and News outlets! In a Tornado Warning it means that radar has indicated a storm capable of a tornado or a tornado was reported.

Nationwide this is one of the worst tornado and severe outbreaks that I have ever seen. Warnings are flying all over the place. Heed all warnings and do not try and view the storms.

Tornado watches have been extended to 2am for many areas!


Remember that it is time to Aerate!

And if you need lawn equipment tune up!

Warm with more Severe storm chances

Another warm day and almost an identical set up. 80s and muggy
conditions. Afternoon and evening storms could be severe again with
high winds being the main threat. Chances will be highest to the west.

Tonight will be busy with a strong front approaching the severe threat
will increase through the night. Tonights threats will include a
chance for Tornadoes as well as high winds and very heavy rains. Rains
could cause some flooding so be alert!

Rain will be ongoing in the morning but ending by mid day along and
west of I-95 and by evening east of I-95.

Cool dry day Friday and warming but dry Saturday and Sunday in store!

Another very warm day with a storm threat

Today we will again see summer like warmth and humidity with a chance
of showers and storms later in the day. Some storms could again be
severe with high winds being the most likely risk. Highs will be low
to mid 80s North and mid to upper 80s south!

Any storms will wind down this evening and a muggy night will be had.

Tomorrow will be a copy of today but a better chance os storms late in
the day. A more probable Severe weather outbreak could occur late in
the day or evening for folks out west and that will spread east

Wednesday night into Thursday could be one of the more severe periods
this year. Storms with high winds, possible tornadoes, and hail could
be a significant threat. Please stay alert of this! There will also be
the threat of flash flooding which will need to be monitored.

Thursday's rain and storms will end mid day in the west and late day
east. Highs 60s west and 70s east.

Again, a beautiful weekend is in store with 70s common and even some 80s south!

Increased Risk for Severe Storms Wednesday

The set up, on Models, shows a risk for severe including tornadoes! This looks like a serious threat and should be monitored the next few days!

All for now!

Mentioned my friend's web site by name and got the URL wrong! is the URL. His lawn equipment tune up business is

Hello summer warmth and humidity! Storms too!

It is a very humid morning for many with fog in the wake of yesterday's downpours. We are all going to see the 80s today, even upper 80s in the southern half of VA and in NC. Pop up showers and storms will be possible and an isolated severe storm is also possible. The Severe threat is a little higher in PA than in MD and VA or NC today. Storms are more likely North VA, DC, MD, and especially in PA than in southern VA or NC.

Tomorrow will be almost a repeat, but a slightly higher chance of a storm.

Wednesday will see highs continue in the 80s and again the chance of storms. That chance will increase in the evening and overnight and some storms in the west may be severe.

Widespread showers and storms will be possible Thursday, but these will be ending west to east as the front moves through. As of now, west of I-95 should clear by noon and east by later in the day. Severe storms will be a possibility as the front is rather strong. Cooler air in the 70s will follow.

Friday and Saturday look nice and in the 70s south and upper 60s north. May be the first all dry Friday, Saturday, and Sunday we have seen in a while!

All for now!

Nice Warm Spring days with Thunderstorms in the forecast - Some may be severe

Happy Easter!

Today does not look bad at all! A sunny day for the most part but the northern third of Virginia, Maryland, and definitely up into Pennsylvania will need to watch for storms. The instability will be enhanced by the stationary front up in PA. The Severe Storms Prediction Center (SPC) has outlined these regions for Slight Risk of severe with the biggest threat winds, but isolated hail and even an isolated tornado is not out of the question.

80s will be the predominant temperature with a challenge being when storms will be more likely. This is again looking to be a very severe week for the Midwest and Eastern Plains. There will be multiple days of very heavy rains and thunderstorms. These storms could prove severe with damaging winds and even tornado threats here as the front and the associated storm complexes come over the region. We will have a lot to watch especially Wednesday into Thursday.

I think that hits the big events this week. More details to come!

All for now!

Nice warm spring weather with some rain and thunder chances

Today will be very nice. Northern VA and MD could see some showers and/or a storm today, but overall the day looks dry and the temps will be nice. Expect mid 70s north and low to mid 80s south!

Tomorrow will be very warm. Temps will soar to the 80s area wide, including some mid and upper 80s southern VA and NC. There is a risk of thunderstorms in the afternoon and some could be severe. This will not be the same coverage or intensity of the last round of storms, but gusty winds will be the primary threat.

Thursday looks nice, but cooler. Highs will reach the low and mid 60s north, about 70 southern VA and in the mid 70s in North Carolina. NC could have some showers and storm Thursday and Thursday night.

The threat of rain returns Friday with showers likely north and showers possible south.

Unsettled weather appears to persist for the weekend. Showers and even thunderstorms are possible both days. Highs will be in the upper 60s north and mid an upper 70s south.

All for now.

Severe Weather Alert!

There is a threat of severe weather today as a strong front comes through the area. Today will feature Gusty Wind, Heavy rain, Severe Thunderstorms, and there is a risk of some Tornadoes. The heavy rain has already been fairly heavy with .75 to as much as an inch in the SW part of the state. Rain, generally 1 - 2 inches, will also be likely, with some seeing between 2 and 3 inches in the SW part of the state. Heavy rains in thunderstorms could cause flash flooding rains.
As the the thunderstorms move through, there will be the threat of high winds, hail, and even tornadoes. The threat is especially high in SE VA, North Carolina, and South Carolina. These areas are even highlighted by the Severe Storms Prediction Center with a moderate risk for Severe Weather! Again, High Winds, Hail, and possible Tornadoes are outlined for this region

As a help to a friend wanted to mention it is that time of year for Aeration and his company will help you in Central and Eastern Loudoun VA as well as Western Fairfax ( He is also an awesome lawn equipment repair company as well so just ask him if you need your mower tuned up or fixed!

All for now!

Cool day with rain winding down SW to NE

Upper level low is SLOW to move! Rain will slowly wind down from SW to NE. Some places were rocked with a lot of rain, while others did not see too much. Bu later today clouds will break up starting in the SW and moving NE as well. Tomorrow and Friday look nicer with dry conditions, but Saturday should be a real soaker with 1 to 3" of rain possible! Temps today, 50s N and 60s S. Thursday, Upper 60s N and 70s S. Friday, Mid 60s N and low 70s south. Saturday: About 60 N and mid 60s south.

Will need to watch Saturday for a Flood threat.

All for now!

Severe threat diminishing East of i-81

Things are not looking too severe right now. Will need to watch for
some strong storms but most energy potential has been used up.

Much colder tomorrow now with a lot of rain. Highs 40s and 50s now
predicted for north and low 60s south.

Sent from my mobile device

Clouds will break free to warm sunny, breezy skies later today. Severe threat!

Very warm to hot day on tap with very warm southerly winds ushering in
warm moist air. This will set the stage for strong to potentially
severe storms late this evening and overnight. Temps will cool to more
seasonal tomorrow with upper 50s to lower 60s north, upper 60s to
lower 70s southern half of VA and NC. Temps will hold about the same
Wednesday and warm to upper 60s and lower 70s Northern VA and MD by
Thursday, but temps the same for Southern VA and NC.

Next chance of rain will be Friday Night into Saturday.

All for now. Updates on severe threat later.

Nice warm breezy sunny day! Storms tonight

The weather for spring is warm and nice today! We have breezy
conditions which will cause some fire risk in the sw part of VA and
NC. Temps will soar to the mid and upper 70s north and mid 80s south!
Showers and thunderstorms will start arriving in the west later this
afternoon or this evening. Some storms will approach strong to severe
limits. Wind would be the primary concern. Storms could be ongoing in
the morning and may still approach severe limits in SE VA and East NC
so the Severe Storms Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted these
areas for slight risk tomorrow.

After morning rain and storms the region will dry out from West to
East and be brteezy and mich cooler. Highs will be in the 50s to near
60 for most.

Rest of the week looks above normal temps with highs in the 65 to 70
degree range north and 75 to 80 degrees range south.

More later!

Spring Time to make a return|Warmer and Thunderstorms!

So we finally have a sunny day on tap after quite a string of cloudy days with rain, snow, and even a bit of hail yesterday. I mentioned yesterday morning on that there was a chance of hail yesterday, but was unable to update the main blog with the information so hopefully not too many were caught of guard! Today will be nice and sunny. Highs will be in the mid and upper 50s north and the mid and upper 60s in the southern areas. Tonight a warm front will slide through the region and may spark a few showers in the region, but it will deliver its warmer air, with highs tomorrow from the mid 70s north to the mid 80s south. Tomorrow will become very breezy as well with strong southerly winds that will be advecting all that warm and moist air into the region. East of the mountains it looks dry too, but, by late in the day showers and storms could be knocking on the mountain's doorstep.

Severe Weather Threat - not that high: The front coming through Monday night into Tuesday morning is strong and a round of showers and strong to severe storms does look probable. The only help will be that they will be coming through during the overnight which will be cooler and thus less fuel for the storms. So, as of now, the Severe Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has not outlined the region for severe, but I suspect that parts of the area will be added over time. The main threat will end up being winds, but isolated tornadoes also seem possible.

Temps will then retreat back for a day to the levels we will see today but then recover to nice Spring 60s and 70s. The next chance of significant weather will be next Saturday, but it is hard to say how strong this system will be.

All for now.

Dreary weather breaking down,but then #severe threat!

The weather will try and improve the next 24 hours and it will with the rain and drizzle becoming much more scattered in the south and rain slowly winding down in the north. The trough causing the cold and dampness will still slide another disturbance through overnight with some showers of rain and even some snow in the higher elevations and northern areas. Saturday will remain cloudy with just spotty showers possible and highs will warm to the mid 50s North to mid 60s South. Things will improve nicely on Sunday with highs in the mid and upper 50s north and mid and upper 60s south. A warm front will come through Sunday Night into Monday and temps will bounce another 10 degrees with highs mid 60s North to Mid 70s south. Some showers will be likely Sunday Night, Monday and Monday Night. As the atmosphere becomes more unstable Tuesday the opportunity is there for heavy rains, with Flash Flooding possible, and Severe Storms! We will need to watch Tuesday.

Temps will then bump back down to Mid 50s north to Mid 60s south Wednesday under clearing skies. Sunny and Milder upper 50s North to Low 70s south comes back Thursday.

All for now!
