Severe Storms With Isolated Tornadoes Are Likely Across the Northeast Today

May 15, 2020 Updated: May 15, 2020

Severe storms are likely from Ohio to New Hampshire on May 15 afternoon and evening.

The worst of the storms is likely to be northwest of New York City, across southern New York and western Massachusetts.

Storms will begin to build early to mid-afternoon.

Still, the stronger thunderstorms are more likely as the afternoon and evening advance.

The main threats will be damaging winds; however, as the atmosphere becomes more volatile, the risk for isolated tornadoes increases.

The Southern Plains Will See Storms Again

Just days after a wave of storms moved through the Southern Plains, another set of severe weather is due. This is where you expect severe storms to fire up this time of the year, more so than the Northeast.

Storms are likely to develop early across Kansas on Friday. By the afternoon, storms will return to Texas and Oklahoma. This area is where damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.

There is also a small risk area across the Central High Plains. The threat there is mostly for hail and some wind gusts.
