Eastern U.S. Storms Diminish Overnight

16 May 2022, 6:35 pm

Severe storms across the eastern U.S. will be diminishing through the overnight hours. Once the front exits to the Atlantic, that severe threat comes to a close.

From Monday, hail reports did reach up to a teacup in size!

Numerous hail and wind reports came through over the course of Monday.

Severe Outlook

Monday night’s risk  remains across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. We are currently under a marginal (level 1 out of 5) risk for strong to severe thunderstorms across our coastal cities from NYC through the Middle Atlantic, and extending north into New England.

The damaging wind threat will be the most impactful severe risk. Power outages, downed trees and flying debris will all be possible.

Heavy rain within the thunderstorms will be a concern especially in northern New England. Please do not drive through flooded roadways.
