With a cold front moving over the Great Lakes our chances for severe weather continues into the afternoon. Ongoing storms continue to impact areas of New York and the northern edge of Pennsylvania. These storms are gaining strength from the moisture off of Lake Erie as well as running into warm air east of the lakes. As the do so, our cold front will help navigate more storms into the Great Lake States. The Storm Prediction Center has portions of the Great Lakes under a marginal (level 1 out of 5) risk for severe weather with strong gusty winds up to 60 mph as our primary threat. As these storms lose a bit of daytime heating they will slow down into the late evening and overnight before moving towards the Atlantic seaboard. Our forecast models show this continuing to move east-bound towards the Atlantic by Thursday. One of the interesting dynamics, in combination with the cold front, is that some of these storms are impacted by the Lake Breeze. What does that mean?
