The Terminal Doppler Radar at Andrews AFB indicated winds over 60 crossing the Chesapeake Bay Friday afternoon. (The bright pink area)


The SPC Severe weather outlook for Friday.

I’ve been tracking some very strong storms across the Chesapeake Bay and into the Delmarva Peninsula this afternoon. A rare moderate risk of severe weather was outlooked by the Storm Prediction Center today for the region. What a crazy winter it has been!

There is also a tornado watch over much of the region, with the greater threat of tornadoes over North Carolina. The crazy weather is not just on this side of the Atlantic. It has been a wet and windy winter in the UK as well. See the video below from my friend Alan Williams who shot these pics of the Lower Aygarth Falls near Howse. Alan is a professional photographer who lives in Wales.
