The mid-Atlantic will get a steady stream of showers and thunderstorms Thursday. The strongest instability will be in the afternoon and into the evening, after the daytime heating will enable further thunderstorm development.
These thunderstorms will remain isolated across the area, stretching from the Ohio Valley through the Delmarva Peninsula.
A few major cities that could see these storms include Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Atlantic City.
Most of these storms will not be severe, but a few thunderstorms could be severe. The main threat with these storms will be potentially damaging wind gusts, but some small hail is also possible.
The area of unsettled weather will shift farther southward on Friday, allowing dry conditions and some sunshine to arrive across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and northern Virginia.
