We’re watching the threat of severe weather across potions of the U.S. today – but the largest risk of seeing a severe storm today will be across portions of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, where an Enhanced Risk is in place.
Zooming in, we can see some large population centers are within this Enhanced Risk, including New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.

Already this morning we have been watching storms across the Northeast, with some Severe Thunderstorm Watches in effect.
Storms look to redevelop along a cold front as we head into the afternoon hours. With strong vertical shear in the atmosphere, we will watch for the potential of large hail, damaging winds, and even some tornadoes.
Here’s the outlook for New York City, showing the the best chance of storms moving in as we head toward the dinner hour this evening. And yes, New York City could see their first 90 of the year today at Central Park, with a forecast high of 92.
In Washington, D.C. temperatures will race toward 100 degrees this afternoon, with storm chances moving in as we head toward the evening hours. Some of these again could be severe.
Looking at Wednesday, we see the main severe weather threat shift back into the middle of the country, with already an Enhanced Risk of severe weather over parts of Iowa. Tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds will be possible throughout the afternoon and evening hours.
