A Stormy Day Today with Flooding and Severe Weather

September 18, 2012; 8:35 AM

Commentary

The map below hones in on the mid-Atlantic states as the area for the severe weather today, but anywhere along the Eastern Seaboard is fair game for severe weather.

Soundings out of Dullas show quite a bit of shear to support storms that could rotate and produce a few tornadoes. I do think the main impacts today will be the heavy rain and flooding, as well as damaging wind gusts produced by the storms.

The event will happen quickly today as storms race along at 50 mph. So between the midday and late afternoon is when the storms will occur. By evening, most are racing off the coast.
