Severe Thunderstorm Watch Expanded Southward All of New Jersey to DCA
The severe thunderstorm watch that runs from Northeast New Jersey to Southeastern New England has been expanded now to include all of New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania southward to Maryland which includes all the major cities along I-95 from Washington to Philadelphia to NYC to Hartford to Providence to Boston.The watch will continue through the evening commute.
We are seeing thunderstorms now firing up rapidly across Eastern Pennsylvania southward as well as a second line in upstate NY that is swinging southeastward toward the Catskills. Look for deteriorating weather conditions across the area during the evening commute as thunderstorms make their way from west to east.

Thunderstorms are growing quickly on the local radars as storms develop in Northern New Jersey. We will likely see some severe thunderstorm warnings being issued from these cells. The biggest threat from them will be gusty winds and heavy rains. The odd stronger cell could possibly produce a rotation.

LOCAL RADAR PHILADELPHIA
Once these thunderstorms end we will see clouds overnight with most lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s. We could see another severe weather threat on Thursday as a second cold front approaches and the Storm Prediction Center has elevated the risk to marginal for late Thursday afternoon.
