Storms Zapping Northern Mid-Atlantic, New York

The holiday weekend is ending with a fresh round of dangerous storms in the northern Mid-Atlantic and southern parts of New England. A second round of storms could boom across northern New England Tuesday before a cooler, drier trend develops by midweek.

Warm, humid air is clashing with cooler drier air seeping in behind a cold front stretched along the Ohio River Valley. Gusty winds in excess of 57 mph and hail the size of golf balls are possible as the front motors east.

Already, reports of hail up to quarter size have been reported in Canton, Ohio and Jordan and Oswego, N.Y. In addition, a wind gust of 60 mph was clocked in Oswego, N.Y.

The thunderstorms will grow in size this afternoon and early evening before fading after sunset. Following the passage of the front, cooler, drier air will work in tonight with a much more refreshing start to the abbreviated work week in the Mid-Atlantic and northern Appalachians.

Not to be outdone, an upper-level disturbance will move in behind the front on Tuesday, allowing thunderstorms to multiply across northern New England early in the afternoon. A few storms that approach places like New York City, Hartford, Conn., and Boston could contain brief gusty winds to 57 mph and possible small hail.

A drier weather pattern with less humidity will ease into New England by midweek.
