Isolated severe storm potential for the day
An upper-level shortwave approaches the region from the northwest. With a surface high positioned south of Nova Scotia, which will help pump heat and moisture out ahead of the frontal boundary and may touch off isolated strong to severe storms from the afternoon into the evening.
The main concerns with any storms that develop are damaging wind and heavy rain. Most of the I-95 corridor from Virginia up through Bangor could be affected and may impact travel by car and air.
While it has been dry for much of the region for the past couple of days, the ground remains saturated over much of the state. Since the storm threat is isolated, I do not expect an official flood watch to be issued, but there is a fair bet for localized flash flood warnings to occur.
Tuesday Noon to 11 PM - The main threat is in the afternoon until around 10 PM. Short term model ideas hint at the potential for training of storms, which could dump an easy 2" or more and could post a higher crooked number in isolated areas.
For those headed oceanside to the beach, I don't expect any concerns there as timing of the wave crossing there may not be until evening. Low tide is in the 10 AM hour which will allow for plenty of available space.
Temperatures are expected to be in the 80s for much of the region, 70s for DownEast areas.
