A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for several Northeast states for the remainder of Friday. The potential for damaging wind gusts, hail, and tornadoes exists within these thunderstorms.
Thunderstorms will continue to fire up along a cold front pressing to the east. This front won’t really cool a lot of you East folks down, rather give you more rainfall after a wet summer so far.
Areas of rain will continue to move to the east/northeast between 20-30 miles per hour. Keep an eye on the west/southwest sky for incoming storms.
Things to keep in mind:
- Stay weather aware if you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors in this area
- Have a way of getting weather warnings for your location
- Prepare to take action if needed due to these storms
- Give yourself extra travel time through rainy areas
