Ida to Slam Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic with Flooding and Tornadoes!

The remains of Ida are not done yet! Ida which is over northern Alabama this morning will move northeast and interact with a cold front that is sitting along I-80. A band of intense rainfall will come out of the Tennessee Valley then enhance into very heavy rain along that cold front. Some areas from Pennsylvania into southern New England could see up to 7 or 8 inches of rain. Bands of thunderstorms which will hit the Southeast today with possible tornadoes will move northeast and hit the Mid-Atlantic into North Carolina Wednesday.

Quick hitting tornadoes may occur from south-central Pennsylvania through Virginia into North Carolina. The Delmarva could see severe storms today followed by more severe storms Wednesday. The HRRR model is pointing to an area across eastern Maryland, northern Virginia into the counties near Harrisburg as the possible tornado threat Wednesday.
