Thunderstorms Expected to Disrupt Friday Evening Commute

PHILADELPHIA – Thunderstorms are likely to erupt across the Northeast later today as a strong cold front advances through the region. The FOX Forecast Center has indicated that ahead of the front, temperatures will rise significantly, reaching the mid-to-upper 80s. This heat, combined with seasonably humid air, will provide the atmospheric energy needed for storms to grow and strengthen.

Atmospheric Conditions Prime for Storm Development

As surface temperatures climb, thunderstorms are expected to form in the higher terrain around midday before moving eastward through the afternoon. The current projections from the FOX Forecast Center suggest that the storms will approach the I-95 corridor just as millions head home for their Friday evening commute.

“Between the potential for minor street flooding and strong straight-line winds possibly affecting train services, you want to make sure that you’re planning ahead,” advised FOX Weather Meteorologist Britta Merwin.

Boston at Higher Risk, NYC and Philadelphia Also Vulnerable

According to NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center, Boston is within a Level 2 out of 5 threat for severe weather. New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. are just outside that zone, classified at a Level 1 risk. As storms initially develop, large hail will be the primary concern, with the threat increasing to 60-plus mph winds as the storms reach the I-95 corridor. Additionally, a brief tornado cannot be ruled out.

Weekend Weather and Beyond

The storms and the accompanying cold front will bring a swift end to the current warmth, with pleasant temperatures expected this weekend. However, the relief will be short-lived as a budding heat wave is anticipated to build next week, with highs well into the 90s expected for multiple days.
