Rounds of Severe Weather Continue Into Tonight Severe Thunderstorm Flash Flood Watch

Often times in severe weather outbreaks you get renegade cells that develop out ahead of the main line of thunderstorms. That is what has happened this afternoon with numerous thunderstorms and severe weather warnings that have come and gone and back again. We have already seen one tornado warning that went up for Staten Island. The Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues until 10pm

The satellite picture shows two distinct areas of bright white clouds representing building thunderstorms. One band is lined up near the coast from Boston south to Western North Carolina. The other is in the western half of Pennsylvania south into West Virginia. The second line will arrive in Eastern Pennsylvania after 6pm and reach the coast around 8pm assuming that the lead storms didn’t stabilize the surrounding atmosphere.

With the ground saturated from rains from the last two weeks, Flash Flood Watches remain in effect for much of the same area that is under a severe thunderstorm watch. In addition a 2 percent tornado risk exists for an area from Eastern Pennsylvania to the Lower Hudson Valley though any severe thunderstorm could spin up a tornado if it is strong enough.

Now we wait to see what happens to those storms to the west as they move eastward this evening. After this cold front passes offshore the storms should diminish and disappear after midnight with leftover clouds. Sunday will see clouds and some sun and only some scattered showers or a thunderstorm. Highs will be in the cooler low to mid 80s though the humidity will still be a bit on the high side.

We will continue to monitor the situation this evening and updates will be issued as warranted. In the meantime watch the radars going into tonight.
