The threat for severe thunderstorms continues from the Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic today (Thursday). The risk area from the Storm Prediction Center
extends from the Central Plains through the Ohio Valley to the Jersey Shore. Damaging straight line winds will be the biggest concern but there also is a threat for large hail and even isolated tornadoes.
Jet Stream energy is expected to increase throughout the late afternoon and evening hours as instability builds, created by ample heat and humidity. This will help to fuel severe thunderstorm development. Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop along a trough in the afternoon, continuing through the night.
