Severe Weather Hits Areas from Kentucky to the Delmarva Peninsula

June 13, 2013; 8:35 AM ET


The Mesoscale Convective System that developed in Ohio last night is still producing gusty storms this morning across parts of southern Pennsylvania into New Jersey. The tail end of the MCS will stall across Virginia into the northern Delmarva Peninsula, and that will be the boundary for the second wave of severe storms to develop along. The storms currently in southern Ohio are associated with the next round of energy that will intensify the storms along the old boundary leftover from the MCS last night. What impresses me this morning are the temperatures and dew points across southern Virginia. Highs will be in the 90s with dew points in the 70s which is plenty of fuel of severe storms with possible tornadoes today.

Severe weather will begin this morning in Kentucky, West Virginia and southern Ohio and spread into Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula this afternoon. Impacts will be wind damage, large hail and tornadoes.

Heavy rains and flash flooding will hit areas from New York into New England today into tonight. Expect 1 to 5 inches of rain.
