Maryland residents may see a partial lunar eclipse tonight, but that largely depends on what storms in the west bring through until midnight.
Monday will be the day in case a severe thunderstorm threatens late afternoon through evening.
WJZ has issued a DATE WARNING for possible severe afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
Storms will develop to the west in the morning and then strengthen as they move east in the afternoon.
Temperatures will have a chance to warm up before the storms arrive and hit their 80s lows.
Harmful winds and up to a quarter of hail still appear to be the biggest threats.
Wind shear looks slightly more favorable for rotational storms and the chance of a tornado or two, but the threat is generally still low.

Wind damage will be a primary concern.
The storm will move across the bay toward the East Coast by 7 p.m. before exiting the area completely by sunset.
However, that time is subject to change.
Tuesday and Wednesday look great.
On Thursday, showers or storms are possible as the warm front passes.
Temperatures really do go up on Fridays and Saturdays with peaks in the 80s.
Saturday could see some places reaching 90 degrees.
The weather in Preakness is fine right now.
