Last Night's Storms Stayed North of Balt/Wash- Not so today!

Thankfully the strong storms stayed north of the Baltimore\DC area last night. Thanks to meteorologist Justin Berk for the graphics and explanation below. 
The next line of storms is on the way this morning, though, and will be felt. Then with the atmosphere remaining unstable, we can expect another round again this afternoon.

   PER JUSTIN:  The storms overnight have mainly stayed north in central PA, while the band in Md did fall apart after crossing the mountains as seen here. *The HRRR model I have been showing had the storms overdone! Worth noting today when assessing it.
This morning's rough weather will likely ride along the mountains and into PA/NJ. The main source of energy will arrive this afternoon. I'm still evaluating how this mornings storms on the map may impact the development later...
TODAY'S FORECAST: 
 Severe T-storm Watch until 11am, 
Flood Watch until 8pm EDT tonight for Balt/Wash
At 8am today: There was a strong line of thunderstorms from York, PA southwest Over Route 81 (the Blue Ridge Mtns) and moving east. 
Clouds/Sun, showers/t-storms developing in the morning, breezy, humid. High 89
Some of these THUNDERSTORMS could produce DAMAGING WINDS, HEAVY RAINFALL, LARGE HAIL AND ISOLATED TORNADOES. Wind Gusts to 32 mph, Flooding Possible. (up to 1 inch of rain).
- A second round of thunderstorms is possible this afternoon.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Showers/t-storms could be Severe. Ending by 11pm. Low 62. 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
