Severe weather threat from the NOAA Storm Prediction Center.

We may see some strong, or briefly severe thunderstorms on Friday, as a cold front approaches Delmarva, and wind shear and instability will be high enough for a few cells to perhaps become severe. The risk of severe weather is higher to our south, but a severe storm may pop here on Delmarva. The highest risk will be in the afternoon hours Friday, and then rain will develop behind the front Friday night, with a good soaking of rain early Saturday. Rain amounts from Midnight Friday through Saturday night will likely reach an inch in many spots.
