Severe Weather Threat in the Middle Atlantic and Plains
20 Jun 2018 9:09 AM
A system swinging into the Middle Atlantic states will likely produce a few severe thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening (Wednesday). Strong wind gusts are the biggest concern, with a more limited hail and tornado threat in the Plains.
A low pressure center and warm front swinging through the Mid Atlantic will create a few showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. With strong instability due to high humidity and temperatures in the 90s, severe thunderstorms will likely develop as upper level energy rolls into the region. Further west, isolated severe thunderstorms are possible along a cold front and low pressure center.
On Thursday and Friday, there is a marginal severe weather risk from the Southeast to the High Plains.
