Boomers In The Forecast…For Now

Boomers are currently moving eastward from West Virginia into the Southeast. Also some freezing rain this morning in PA as surface temperatures remain below freezing. Northern MD could also see some freezing rain. Today won’t be the only threat of boomers though as Thursday night into Friday will bring another chance to hear some rumbles of thunder.
