A batch of drenching showers and locally severe thunderstorms will continue to swing through the northeastern United States to end this weekend before unseasonably cool air settles in to start the new week.
Severe thunderstorms first ignited across Maryland and West Virginia on Sunday afternoon, dropping quarter-sized hail on a few communities.
Hail, damaging winds and downpours will remain concerns as violent thunderstorms continue to erupt across the mid-Atlantic into Sunday evening. Locally severe thunderstorms will also fire across parts of eastern New York and western New England.
Storms are packing a punch all the way to the Interstate-95 corridor from New York City to Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Virginia. Hail ranging from the size of peas to walnuts pounded the Philadelphia area.

As has been the case in recent weeks, some of the strongest storms could also produce a brief tornado.
Noticeably cooler air will follow the wet weather from northwest to southeast into Monday.
It is conceivable that where the sky becomes clear and winds diminish at night, parts of the normally cold spots from across the interior Northeast early Tuesday morning.
