New York City to Philadelphia to Cincinnati May Have Flooding Downpour Type Storms

Scattered thunderstorms will once again develop this afternoon from eastern New England through the Ohio Valley. As we saw yesterday, the storms were slow movers producing tremendous heavy rains and downpours which resulted in street flooding and small creeks rising. On the other side of things, the storms will bring relief to the heat by lowering temperatures in the evening.

The storms will be concentrated in in several areas and could impact the I-95 corridor from New York City to Philadelphia. That area is where a trough has settled in add sea breeze fronts will interact with that trough resulting in an area where storms will develop. Other storms will develop through the Mountains again and back into the Ohio Valley along the corridor of moisture that is coming up from the tropical low over Louisiana.

The real relief is a few days away when a cold front will move through bringing a change to cooler and less humid weather this weekend. Yea!

Check out the Satellite Image and Radars to get a better idea about the storms.
