A cold front will move through the Northeast Friday. That front will produce a broken band of severe thunderstorms that will move through the I-95 corridor cities late in the day.
While this is not a big event for severe weather, the storms will only aggravate the soggy conditions but will also produce local wind damage.
One of the concerns that I have is that any wind gusts with thunderstorms will topple trees because the root systems are so soggy from the rains the trees just can’t hold their ground. So even a 40 mph will gust can potential knock down a tree.
Storms will develop after 3pm and should move off the coast by 10pm Friday night. Expect a nice weekend before the rains return next week.
