Severe Thunderstorm Watch today…
As a fair warning – conditions are moist, sweaty and ripe for some gushing summer storms in our area. I think the bulk of the threat lies to our west – but the entire area is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 8pm tonight…
Will Hoboken get hit hard? or not at all?
Violent, heavy storms will target the Northeast today, including some of the major cities of the I-95 corridor by the afternoon and evening. New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. will be at risk for damaging storms that could produce flash flooding.
The storms will erupt along a cold front pushing into the East, cutting into the steamy air in place. The locally severe storms will erupt from southern Quebec through central Virginia.
Flash flooding and blinding, travel-disrupting downpours will likely be the most widespread concern.
Other threats will include damaging winds up to 60 mph and hail as large as quarters. Trees and power lines will likely be downed in some areas. Fallen trees could cause damage to houses and cars, and injuries to people. Power outages could also occur in some areas.
