6:50 PM | Severe thunderstorms closing in on the Philly and New York metro regions

Discussion

Intense thunderstorms are closing in on both the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan regions. These storms are likely to contain damaging wind gusts of up to 60 mph, frequent lightning, heavy rain and possible hail. The storms are moving rapidly and will arrive between 7 and 8:30PM in the northern and western suburbs of these two metro regions. This explosive situation is not necessarily over with this initial line of storms as there are more storms across central and western Pennsylvania.
