The storm threat from Friday now shifts along the East Coast Saturday. By the end of Friday over 200 storm reports were observed from the Southeast and over the Ohio Valley. The same low pressure system and frontal setup will affect locations with large hail, strong damaging winds, and even a tornado today.
A lengthy front spreads into the region from the West. Currently a series of low pressures exists around the Mid-Atlantic. This will create a stir of instability to begin developing rom Virginia toward Massachusetts. By later Saturday this frontal will turn stationary and low pressure systems will get “stuck” over the region especially around the tri-state area including Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. So far today, especially over these mentioned locations have storms begun to fire. Another locations the the team is also watching includes the Carolina’s as another enhanced area may develop creating storms.
Taking a closer looks across the tri-state it is evident that current watches and warnings that have been issued lately out of the National Weather Service foretells storms have occurred and still are likely to develop more widespread. The team has highlighted this area in red indicated the elevated threat and included the outflow boundary where storms are developing against.
If a watch or warning has been issued for your living location please keep your eye toward the sky and seek shelter immediately when warning calls for it until the storm has passed and the warning has expired.
