USNA Weather Forecast
A cut-off low pressure system will slowly pass through the region over the weekend. Ahead of the system (and associated cold front), warm and humid conditions will persist with a mix of clouds and sun through midday on Friday. Storms, some of which could be strong or severe, will develop during the late afternoon/early evening. A second round of storms will pass overnight. The greatest threats are severe wind gusts and locally torrential rainfall, although small hail and an isolated tornado cannot be completely ruled out. The National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Watch though tonight as localized rainfall totals could exceed 3.0 inches. Partly cloudy conditions are on tap for the reminder of the weekend with a chance for passing showers as the Low slowly departs. In addition, sustained south and southeasterly winds through Sunday could continue to result in minor or moderate coastal flooding during high tides.
