Severe Storms for Northeast Today

15 Oct 2017, 12:04 pm

A bonafide cold front is racing across the country sparking a few showers across the Midwest and Great Lakes region. Temperatures are dropping 5-10 degrees in some places already as the cooler air rushes in behind the front.

Most of the country will only pick up on some general thunderstorms with a good dose of beneficial rain for portions of the southeast; however, areas in the northeast are expected to get a nasty little line of storms by late afternoon to early this evening.

There is a slight risk (yellow-shaded area) in effect for western New York and western Pennsylvania.

This line of storms will likely initiate this afternoon as the cold frontal boundary taps into additional daytime heating yielding a sharp increase in buoyancy to our atmosphere allowing for the storms to develop quickly. Timing around 3p – 5p for Western New York and Pennsylvana. South Central New York between 5p – 8p this evening.

Damaging winds in excess of 50-60 mph along with isolated pockets of hail 1.00 in diamter or greater look to be the main concern.

The coastal areas of the northeast will wake up with some clouds and a few showers to start your Monday;however, severe risk will be null and void by tomorrow.

This front will drop temperatures quite a bit for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Places like Atlanta, Ga can expect high in the upper 60s by Tuesday!
