This risky storm will be near Lewisburg, Winfield and Montandon around 2:50, Northumberland, Sunbury and Shamokin Dam around 3 p.m., Riverside, Mooresburg and Stonington around 3:10 p.m. and Danville and Elysburg around 3:20. Some could be strong to severe with heavy rain, damaging wind and hail.

Flash flooding is the biggest concern.

Weather Service Meteorologist Steve DiRienzo said those storms could spark tornadoes, though the probability of that was "very low".

For Tuesday morning, however, the weather service advised of patchy fog across Long Island.

The National Weather Service advises that there may also be scattered flooding incidents "along the northern and central Virginia Blue Ridge into the Piedmont".

It will be warm and humid, with high temperatures reaching around 80 degrees this afternoon. Weekend rainfall totals were about an inch at O'Hare and about a half-inch at Midway.

Wednesday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

A line of strong thunderstorms will affect Huron and Erie counties this morning.

Heat and humidity combined with a passing upper-level storm to produce pockets of strong to severe storms this afternoon in the region.

Hundreds of people are without power in Columbia and Greene Counties after severe storms hit the area late Tuesday afternoon.

As is typical behind an MCS, we're now in an area of more stable air, so the rain is gone and we even have some sunshine in spots. At 1:20 a.m. Friday, the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island reported a peak wind speed of 64 miles per hour. As the front moves through western Mass a line of severe storms will barrel through as well.
