A line of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move east

effect. Please be sheltered when these thunderstorms pass through
your area.

The most likely timing of the line ranges are through 6 PM for the
Potomac Highlands, between 6 and 8 PM for I-81 to the Blue Ridge
an Catoctin Mountains, between 8 and 10 PM for the Washington and
Baltimore Metro areas, and late this evening over southern
Maryland to the Chesapeake Bay. The storms will likely last an 
hour or less in most areas.
