Severe Storms for the Northeast to the Mid-Atlantic

A cold front coming through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will produce a band of severe storms today. The storms this afternoon will produce damaging winds, hail and perhaps those things that are not called tornadoes anymore. The UD Helicity Swaths product from the HRRR model would suggests that the storms could produce a swath of large hail or even a tornado. The simulated radars show bands of heavy storms ahead of the cold front. Keep in mind, these are the same areas that have been hit a number of times this summer.
