1. The storm will produce heavy snow from Pennsylvania into the Northeast. In many cases the snow rates will be 1-2 inches per hour and thunder could be mixed with it. The secondary storm will produce heavy snow from upstate New York into Maine.
2. Severe weather is under way this morning and will continue through the afternoon. The main impacts will be hail and damaging wind gusts, but there is enough shear for a few tornadoes to develop as well. I like to see higher dew points for tornadoes.
3. Longer range, the GFS has another major storm this weekend into early next week that dumps more heavy snow. The ECMWF goes south with the storm, but I think the ECMWF will come north with that storm on the late day run. I would not be surprised to see snow finally in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore with the next storm only because there will be plenty of cold air around this time.
More showers and thunderstorms this weekend which can produce heavy rains again.
A system that started in the Gulf of Mexico is coming northeast and will bring a swath of heavy rains.
A tropical low coming Northeast will produce a corridor of heavy rains.
Storms will fire over the High Plains today. Later this week, heavy rains may come north.
Severe storms will hit areas from Pennsylvania to New Jersey today. The storms will be packing high winds.
The heat is on from the Plains into the East.
