Like a 13 year-old’s face, there are red dots popping up all over the place on the radar this morning. That means big-time thunderstorms.
The powerful storm from yesterday is now causing problems along the East coast. There are tornado watches early this morning from the Mason-Dixon line down to SC. That means the conditions are still ripe for a tornado to form. I’ll have all the latest warnings if they happen. Either way, the storms are producing big amounts of rain and lots of wind. I’m looking for about 2-3” rain from NY to VT, NH, and ME. Travel will become a nightmare today from new England down to Atlanta with the wind and rain, so be prepared to sit a little longer and people watch at your gate. The cold air is stirring up some lake effect snow as well, and that will pile up to about 6-12” south of Buffalo this afternoon. It’ll be windy and cold across the MW today in the wake of the storm, but at least it will be quiet for you.
More winter weather is hanging around the Pacific NW this morning, with winter storm warnings for CA, WA, OR, and ID. I’ll have that for you later in the show.
