WEATHER BLOG: Turbulent Weather
There is a risk of thunderstorms with damaging winds and a few tornadoes from Wednesday night to Thursday night in parts of the mid-Atlantic and South.
Strong thunderstorms and localized flooding incidents are likely in portions of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia as one or more complexes of thunderstorms roll in from the Midwest then turn southward over time.
The storm complexes bring a risk of 60-mph wind gusts, downed trees, sporadic power outages, minor property damage and flash flooding on an isolated basis.
However, a few of the storms could become intense with the risk of producing tornadoes and 80-mph wind gusts as well as large hail, torrential downpours and frequent lightning strikes. Communities hit by these storms could experience many downed trees, widespread power outages and more significant property damage.
