Lines Of Dangerous Thunderstorms Are Impacting The Mid-Atlantic

This radar map for the Mid-Atlantic (courtesy of The Weather Channel) shows the two lines of strong storms spreading east

There are currently two very distinct lines of thunderstorms pushing east¬†from the Ohio Valley towards the East Coast. The leading line is currently¬†pushing through the DC area while the secondary line is further back nearer the cold front. While a tornado threat is there and one or two (at least) are likely to form, the main threat is for 1-3″ per hour rains with totals of 2-4″ locally, damaging straight line winds, dangerous cloud to ground lightning and flash flooding are the primary threat from both lines.

With both lines crossing the same areas. Most located from as far south as the Virginia-North Carolina line all the way to central Pennsylvania will likely see impact from the above and combining the two lines, we could see some spots, especially where the deep reds are (strongest cells) collect over 6″ of rain.
