The Northeast is seeing severe weather today with the threat continuing into tonight. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect through this evening as a slight risk for severe thunderstorms continues.
The chance for large hail and tornadoes is low today. The biggest risk is strong wind gusts above 60 mph. A slow moving front will drift southward tonight as upper level energy moves through the Jet Stream. This will support severe thunderstorm development. Storms will shift out into the Atlantic overnight and the severe threat will diminish.
On Friday, the front will wiggle southward to near the Mason-Dixon line. A few severe thunderstorms will be possible in the Chesapeake Bay region back into the Appalachian Mountains. The severe weather threat on Saturday shifts into the Western Great Lakes.
