Severe Sunday?

So far, spring 2010 has not seen much in the way of thunderstorm activity in the region. In fact, April rainfall in general is way below the seasonal average. All of that could change today.

A major spring storm is rolling across the Midwest and Mid Atlantic region.

Yesterday, the system generated devastating tornadoes across Mississippi and Alabama.

Today, the severe potential is shifting to the east and north.

A slight risk for severe storm activity ranges from the Mid Atlantic through the Southeast.

The Ohio River Valley and parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania have been further targeted for an increased risk for storm development.

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined the area in blue above for an increased risk of severe thunderstorms with strong winds, large hail, and possibly tornadoes for Sunday afternoon and evening. A warm front will be strung out across the area and would provide the trigger mechanism and focal point for any activity. A WATCH may ultimately be issued to further define the risk.
