Next Round of Severe Storms Wednesday & Thursday

29 Jul 2020, 5:00 am

The Storm Prediction Center has parts of the Great Lakes states under a marginal risk (level 1 on a scale of 1 to 5) for severe storms today as another cold front moves into the region.  This will mainly impact areas along both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

The primary threat will be damaging wind gusts with storms that develop from Cleveland to Syracuse.

Storms will be strongest along the leading edge of the cold front. Daytime heating will also drive some of those strong updrafts that create and sustain thunderstorms. These storms are expected during the afternoon and continue into the evening (Wednesday). The images below show our model guidance with these storms:


On Thursday, the severe threat will shift into New England, with cities such as Boston, Hartford, and New York City under a risk for isolated storms capable of damaging winds and large hail.

Here is the latest track based on model guidance:
