Warm and humid air in place over much of the Midwest and Northeast at midweek will contribute to the risk of severe thunderstorms.
Storms are forecast to erupt and turn heavy, gusty and locally severe on Wednesday from the Ohio Valley to the eastern Great Lakes, central Appalachians and northern New England.
“The strongest storms could bring wind gusts up to 60 mph and heavy rain that could lead to flooding,” said AccuWeather Senior Storm Meteorologist Kate Danna.
Cities that could be affected include Louisville, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Ohio; Charleston, West Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Syracuse, New York; and Burlington, Vermont.
