The East Coast Severe Weather Threat is Over

Midnight: The East Coast Threat for Tornadoes and Severe Thunderstorms Has Ended

3:50pm. Tornado watch for the Middle Atlantic Region.

Tornadoes are also forecast in the South.

A couple of tornadoes, hail and wind gusts to 65 mph are possible with these storms. This includes NYC and Philadelphia. 

1:05pm. The tornado risk has been extended northward into New York.
The brown area has a significant risk of tornadoes.

Remember: if a tornado warning is issued, go to your basement and get under heavy furniture like a pool table. Of, if your basement is finished, get into the bathroom. Go ahead an put a couple of water bottles and, if appropriate, diapers in your shelter area. Wear shoes. 

If you don't have a basement or safe room, go to the lowest floor and get into a bath or closet in the middle of your home. Children should be put in the bathtub. 

I'll update later today.
