A line of strong to severe thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts
is expected to sweep east across our region this afternoon into 
this evening.

The risk for severe thunderstorms increases from Marginal Risk 
over central Virginia, to Slight Risk generally north of I-66 and 
US-50, to Enhanced Risk along and near the Mason-Dixon Line. 
Damaging wind gusts are the primary threat, although large hail 
and an isolated tornado are also possible.

The initial line of storms should enter western Maryland and the
eastern panhandle of West Virginia between 1 and 4 PM. It is then
expected to move east across the Shenandoah Valley and west
central Maryland between 3 and 5 PM. The line should reach the 
Baltimore and Washington metro areas and southern MD between 5 
and 8 PM. All times are current best estimates, and people should
be ready to seek shelter when storms threaten or warnings are
