DISCUSSION: As a cold front associated with a relatively weak low-pressure system positioned over Southern Canada continues to slowly move eastward through the course of this afternoon and this evening, a pronounced severe weather threat remains in place across many parts of the Northeast. As of this afternoon, a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms has erupted in a broken line extending from Northern New Jersey to near the Capital District of East-Central New York with an array of severe thunderstorm warnings as well as 1 or 2 tornado warnings being issued already. As a result of this continued severe weather threat, is imperative to keep an eye to the sky this afternoon and evening as you head out for your holiday weekend plans and be sure to take shelter in the presence of thunder or lightning so as to not put yourself in harms way. Currently, the largest threat appears to be across Eastern and Southeastern New York as well as Western Massachusetts. However, through the remainder of this afternoon and evening, the primary threat region for strong to severe storms will move east in accordance with the eastward progression of the aforementioned cold front.
