UPDATE ON UPCOMING EAST COAST SEVERE WX THREAT! (credit: NWS Eastern Region HQ Office)
DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low-pressure system heads towards the East Coast (i.e., specifically towards the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions), there will be an increasing threat for strong to severe thunderstorms which may be capable of producing heavy rainf, strong to damaging winds, large hail, and even a few isolated tornadoes in spots. Though as mentioned in the graphic below courtesy of the National Weather Service Eastern Region Headquarters office's forecast graphic, the greatest threat appears to be centered in and around the Mid-Atlantic region. This larger threat for more pronounced thunderstorm activity can be linked to the likely presence of greater buoyancy and convective instability in place further south from the Northeast region. There will be further updates both your local National Weather Service office(s) on this pending situation as we get closer to Sunday and Monday . so be sure to stay tuned right here at the Global Weather Climate Center for more updates/information as we get closer to Sunday and Monday!
