Severe Storms Possible on Sunday in the Northeast

Following what’s expected to be a very busy day of severe weather Saturday, a few strong storms could persist into Sunday morning and the early afternoon across the Northeast on Sunday.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a marginal risk for the highlighted areas for Sunday. A marginal risk means isolated severe storms are possible. The threat is expected to last from sunrise into the early afternoon, however, a few strong storms may persist east of the Appalachians in the mid-afternoon hours.

Isolated tornadoes are possible in the strong storms from western New York to Virginia.

The entire risk area could see thunderstorms capable of producing damaging downdraft winds in excess of 58 mph.

Large hail will also be possible within these thunderstorms.

The greatest potential for severe storms is expected to last from around sunrise to noon, eastern time, but as the cold front generating the storms approaches the coast, a few additional strong to severe storms are possible.

Stay with for the possibility of severe weather this weekend and next week.  Remember you can watch us via our streaming platforms 24/7 :
