    Wet, Stormy Start to Week in East

    July 30, 2014, 1:29:32 AM EDT

    People across New England and into the mid-Atlantic will be reaching for their umbrellas on Monday as the same system responsible for the weekend's severe weather spreads rain and thunderstorms across the regions.

    The steadiest rain is forecast to fall from northwestern Pennsylvania through northern Maine and into parts of Atlantic Canada. Some locations in this zone could pick up over an inch of rain through Monday night, especially in the higher elevations.

    While only a few showers and thunderstorms are seen along the I-95 corridor, a zone of stronger storms is forecast to develop over southern New England.

    On Monday morning, a tornado touched down north of Boston in Revere, the National Weather Service confirmed.

    These storms are projected to stay just west of Boston and bring the risk of damaging wind gusts and hail during the afternoon.

    While rain falls across the Northeast, severe storms will make an appearance across parts of the Southeast.

    Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front during the afternoon can turn severe, stretching from the coast of the Carolinas down into Alabama.

    Wind gusts up to 60 mph and flooding downpours will be the primary threats before the storms taper off throughout Monday night.

    Travel delays should be anticipated as a result of the rain and severe storms for those on the roadways and taking to the air.

    Flooding may also turn into an issue for some, especially in areas that received a plethora of rain from the weekend storms.

    Looking ahead to Tuesday, much drier conditions are expected across the East. However, some spotty afternoon showers may develop over New England and down the spine of the Appalachian Mountains.
