Severe Weather Potential in the Southeast and Northeast
1 Nov 2018 9:15 AM
A strong cold front produced multiple severe thunderstorms on Wednesday along the Gulf of Mexico coastline from Texas to Alabama. Several tornadoes were reported, along with strong winds producing damage.
The system continues to move eastward with additional showers and thunderstorms for today (Thursday) from Alabama to North Carolina. Tornadoes are possible, along with strong winds and large hail.
Heat and humidity will continue to build ahead of the cold front responsible for Wednesday's severe weather. As it pushes eastward today (Thursday), more severe storms will develop.
Further north, there is a marginal severe thunderstorm risk in New York and Pennsylvania. Wind damage will be the biggest concern with strong Jet Stream energy wrapping around a low pressure center on the northern side of the storm system.
The cold front will lose some strength for Friday, but there is still a marginal risk for severe thunderstorm. The area extends from Chesapeake Bay to the Big Bend of Florida.
