Severe Weather in the Northeast and Upper Midwest Jul 17, 2017

The Upper Midwest and the Northeast will see some severe storms this afternoon and tonight. A slight risk for severe weather continues in Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, and Vermont. Tornadoes are not likely with the storms in the Northeast, but large hail and strong winds are a concern this evening.

A slow moving front has been producing showers and thunderstorms and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues from Pennsylvania to Vermont into this evening. Storms will quickly diminish in intensity after sunset and move out into the Atlantic Ocean.

In Minnesota, there is a small risk for a tornado early this evening. As in the Northeast, strong winds above 60 mph and large hail greater than the size of a quarter are the biggest threats severe weather threats tonight.

A cold front is moving out of North and South Dakota into Northern and Central Minnesota. Much above average temperatures coupled with high humidity will help to fire severe storms along the front. Storms are likely to remain strong into the overnight.

On Tuesday, the cold front in the Upper Midwest will settle slightly to the south. The threat for severe thunderstorms will extend from Wisconsin to Nebraska. The system will weaken for Wednesday, bringing lower severe weather chances.
