Some highly populated cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C, have been included in Tuesday's risk area. Overall, more than 30 million people live in the population area that forecasters have highlighted for severe weather danger on Tuesday.
AccuWeather Global Weather Center – August 30, 2022 – AccuWeather meteorologists say that tens of millions of residents in the Northeast will be at risk of severe weather on Tuesday.
The weather will turn combustible in the region as a large pocket of warm and humid air collides with an approaching cold front. This same front caused wind damage around Chicago on Monday and knocked out power to more than 600,000 customers when storms rolled through Michigan.
A few storms produced wind damage on Monday as far east as western portions of New York and Pennsylvania. The threat will expand and spread eastward on Tuesday, according to AccuWeather meteorologists.
Severe storms will be possible from central and southern Virginia, northward to New England and the southern part of the Canadian province of Quebec, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Andrew Johnson-Levine.
