Drenching Downpours for I95 Corridor, Then Sun for the Weekend

June 12, 2014; 7:54 AM ET

Thursday Morning

I will be out of the office through June 29, with only occasional posts likely.

This video includes the forecast from today through the weekend in the Northeast and Great Lakes.

Thunderstorms were common yesterday and last night. This map shows the 10's of thousands of lightning strokes observed between 10AM ET yesterday and 9:35 AM ET today (June 12). New storms developed this morning in eastern Maryland and eastern Virginia. These may spread toward Philadelphia and then New York City this afternoon and evening.
