Severe Weather Watches Issued Across the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast

While Tropical Depression Nicholas soaks the Gulf Coast, the northeast is in for its own bout of severe weather on Wednesday evening. 

On Wednesday evening, a passing cold front will result in severe showers and thunderstorms across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys, the northeast, and mid-Atlantic. 

Severe thunderstorms started to develop over central Pennsylvania and upstate New York Wednesday afternoon. As a result, regions across Pennsylvania, New York, and New England, namely Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire, are under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch. 

These storms will continue to increase and intensify as they push eastward, with primary threats being large hail and severe wind gusts near 70 mph. A few isolated tornadoes are possible as well. These will move east into northern New England later Wednesday afternoon and then towards the coast.

Storms will begin to taper Wednesday night before reaching the coast, but they could still result in isolated hail, heavy downpours, and 40-50 mph wind gusts as they move toward New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston.
