A cold front plowing into the warm and humid airmass will produce a band of severe thunderstorms from the Northeast into the Appalachians this afternoon. The storm swill develop this afternoon and will mainly produce large hail and damaging winds. The tornado risk based on soundings and the rotation tracks is pointing toward the Hudson Valley into Maine. That area has seen tornado activity this summer so it’s not out of the question we see more tornadoes today. Hail could be large up to an inch in size. The storms will move into New England and the Mid-Atlantic tonight but should be weaker and only produce gusty winds.
