Severe Weather Moving Through This Evening Another Round Possible Thursday
We have an ongoing severe thunderstorm watch in effect from Northeast Virginia to the Hudson Valley and Southwestern New England as well as Eastern Pennsylvania. Thunderstorms developed this afternoon after another day of strong daytime heating and highs that reached the low to mid 90s. You can see the impressive blowup of clouds on the satellite picture below as these thunderstorms are moving eastward now into New Jersey.
Regional radar is loaded with thunderstorms from Northern New Jersey to Northeast Virginia and Maryland and about to enter Delaware. Numerous severe thunderstorm warnings are showing up on the local radars below.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Late this evening these storms will die out leaving us in warm and humid conditions overnight. Lows will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s. A cold front approaches on Thursday and get set for another round of thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has raised the risk to “slight” from marginal from Northern New Jersey northeast into New England for Thursday afternoon and evening.
Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s so how much daytime heating will likely be key to the extent of severe weather. This next cold front does linger around on Friday so the risk for a shower or thunderstorm remains. Otherwise there should be some sunshine for both Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s both days. The weekend is looking good with sunshine, very warm to hot conditions but no thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid 80s to near 90. The humidity might be slightly lower over the weekend.
