Severe Weather Moves Into The Northeast, Mid-Atlantic
UPDATED 5 PM EDT, September 6, 2014
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Mark Ellinwood
The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic could see severe storms today as a cold front pushes through the region, with damaging winds, large hail, frequent lightning and tornadoes possible.
Very warm and humid air will continue to feed the thunderstorms today, with the severe storms mostly focused along the advancing cold front. Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and Bangor, Maine are at risk for these severe storms.
A lower threat for strong to severe storms extends southwestward along the cold front into the southern Mid-Atlantic, which includes Charleston, W.V. and Roanoke, Va.
