Severe Weather Likely for the Southeast and East Coast Monday

*Breaking*  A tornado watch has been issued for parts of Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania through Monday evening.

Jet stream energy will allow for a severe set-up and create deep and strong wind shear across the Middle Atlantic, leading to the potential for storms to create damaging wind gusts and perhaps a few isolated tornadoes.

Tornadoes and damaging winds will be the primary weather risks with this severe set-up. The hail potential is low.

The cold front will sweep through the Middle Atlantic during the day, bringing a few severe thunderstorms. Heavy rain and isolated severe storms into the Northeast.

Rain totals will be anywhere from 1-4″ with locally higher amounts possible. Flooding from heavy rain will be another hazard, especially in flood prone areas.
