Accu Weather Alert: Storms Head Toward Atlantic Coast

Millions facing severe weather risk

As storms track farther east toward the major coastal cities, they're likely to grow more widespread and intense.

AccuWeather Global Weather Center – July 25, 2022 – AccuWeather forecasters say severe thunderstorms will converge on coastal areas of New England and the mid-Atlantic into Monday evening. The intense storms, which will also stretch back to Kentucky and Tennessee, will put tens of millions at risk.

As the cold front responsible for the unsettled weather tracks eastward, severe storms are forecast to shift from the Interstate 95 corridor to many of the beaches. While the storms are set to bring an end to the scorching heat wave that is ongoing in the region, it will come with a threat of damaging winds, hail and perhaps even a tornado.

During the early hours of Monday morning, a round of strong storms was ongoing in parts of the interior Northeast. In northwestern Pennsylvania, several tornado warnings were issued as a particularly intense storm moved near Warren, Pennsylvania, though it wasn't immediately clear if a tornado did touch down.

"The greatest risk for severe thunderstorms along the Eastern Seaboard until around dusk Monday evening will be in two main zones," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek said. "One zone will be focused on southeastern New England and the other will extend from southeastern Virginia to the Delmarva Peninsula."
