Maryland is in for some extreme weather this week, and it is vital that you and your household stay safe indoors. But how good a job of protecting you can your home really do? One thing you’ll need to check before the storm hits is the condition of your windows. Together with your roof, your windows make sure that strong winds and heavy rains stay out of your home and that your living spaces remain comfortable regardless of external conditions.
Below is a snippet of the weather report released by The Baltimore Sun:
Rain showers, turning heavy in the evening, are forecast Tuesday amid blustery winds.
Temperatures are expected to hover in the mid-50s throughout the day, with rain continuing. Winds around 15 mph with gusts nearing 30 mph are forecast.
Storms are possible in the evening, with heavy rains expected. About 2 inches of rain are possible Tuesday.
Storm chances continue into Wednesday, with 15-20 mph winds and highs in the upper 60s. Another 3 inches of rain are possible to fall Wednesday.
Severe weather is forecast to stay south of Maryland, though there could be threats of damaging winds and an isolated tornado particularly in Southern Maryland, according to the Storm Prediction Center.
