Severe Weather Impacts Eastern US Again Today But Nothing Like Yesterday..

The above image was captured on live TV in New York City yesterday during the height of the wild storms as they pushed through the city. It was an impressive day for severe storms with a copious amount of wind damage reports and there was some tremendous lightning displays. In the below chart, notice there is one tornado report near the NY-PA line. Today will see more thunderstorms with some of the severe ones focused upon the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic, it’s not going to be nearly as bad as yesterday thankfully.

The above map shows all the preliminary severe weather reports from yesterday. Notice they extend from Texas to New York and at one point yesterday there was a single line of thunderstorms which extended from Virginia all the way to Texas.

Today there a boundary extends from Tennessee all the way to New England. East of the boundary the air is very humid as well as very warm while the truely hot air is on the west side of the boundary but cooler air is pushing down from the Great Lakes with an upper low helping enhance thunderstorm development along the boundary.

Greatest potential for severe storms will be over the Ohio Valley into the Mid-Atlantic while scattered thunderstorms which at best produces heavy, torrential rains will impact the Northeast.

A trough will keep things unsettled throughout the weekend over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic and cooler air will begin to push in, dropping humidity and temperature across the region.
