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.

If you live in an area that could be threatened by thunderstorms, be sure to download the mobile WeatherBug app on your smart phone. The mobile apps now include Spark Lightning Alerts, a GPS-based lightning detection feature providing you the location of the closest lightning strike, so you can Know Before the storm hits.
