June 14, 2021 - Thunderstorm Wind

Around 10:15 PM, a severe thunderstorm produced another, stronger damaging wind gust over Edgemere, Maryland. This most significantly impacted the community along Jones Creek, and then to the southeast along North Point Road. The hardest hit areas were along Waldman, Hughes, and Geise Avenues. About six to twelve large trees were uprooted in various areas in this community, and several large branches were snapped, in addition to numerous downed small branches and leaf debris. Some homes were damaged by falling trees and branches. As the gust moved southeastward, it snapped two power poles along North Point Road near the intersection with Avenue C. However, no damage was noted to trees and farm sheds across the street from the poles. All noted damage was due to a wind gust blowing from the northwest toward the southeast. Peak winds were estimaed to have been 75 MPH. At least one fell onto a structure near the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Shady Grove Circle.

An outbreak of significant severe weather occurred during the afternoon and evening hours of Tuesday, July 12th, 2022. An unseasonably strong cold front interacted with a high instability airmass to result in several bowing lines of thunderstorms, which maintained their organization and intensity due to strong atmospheric wind shear. Swaths of widespread damaging winds were observed, much of which was considerable. A couple of tornadoes were also confirmed, along with some significant hail. A wind gust of over 100 MPH was measured in one of the most powerful storms over eastern West Virginia.

This allowed flash flooding to occur across the Baltimore metro area, resulting in several road closures and water rescues. Severe thunderstorms also occurred, with gusty winds downing trees and power lines. There were also a few reports of large hail.
