Strong Storms Threaten Philly; Mid-Atlantic

Showers and thunderstorms will move through the mid-Atlantic today with the potential for a few isolated strong storms from Binghamton, N.Y., through Charlottesville Va.

Overall, the threat for severe weather is low, but there is the potential that some thunderstorms may produce gusty winds, heavy downpours and hail.

These showers and thunderstorms will be moving with a cold front that will be advancing through the region on Wednesday.

When asked about the timing of these storms, Meteorologist DJ Hoffman said "These storms will be moving through central Pennsylvania around 5 p.m. and arriving in Harrisburg around 7 p.m. The storms will start to break apart by the time that they reach Philadelphia after dark."

Due to the timing of these storms, they will have little to no impact on the evening commute around Philadelphia, Harrisburg, D.C. and Baltimore.

Although storms may produce gusty winds, heavy downpours and hail, they will not be capable of producing tornadoes.

Temperatures will drop to a few degrees below normal on Thursday in the wake of the cold front as cool Canadian air moves into the Northeast. Temperatures will remain below average on Friday as this cool air holds in place over the region.
