SPC has a slight risk up for parts of the region for Friday. Models also are indicating a pretty high cape and moderate shear environment.

Friday could end up as an interesting severe weather event, especially for central PA into NY. Places further east, such as NJ, shouldn't see much, if any storms, but the torch will be the main story, with parts of NJ reaching the 90 degree mark.

Here's a map I made for my blog last night showing my thoughts for Friday, which have not changed at this time:

It should be added as well. The 26th should also bring a moderate-high end slight risk but for places further west, into western PA/NY.

ARW is pretty bullish for Friday. NMM not so much.

NAM looks about the same as the ARW.

Looking at the GFS cape is around 2000 even into our area and shear looks pretty good as well around 40-60 knts. These two factors make me think you should extend he 15 percent risk into our area if not the 30 percent.

Tomorrow well the parameters are rather high! Especially across eastern PA. With left over energy coming east from overnight convection from the midwest storms may ignite. There may also be a S/W that comes across the region as there is a front draped near the region the will help spawn storms. I don't see these storms being that widespread but they may be enough to cause isolated damage across the region. I would like to see how the afternoon plays out. Friday doesn't look as abundant with parameters but enough to help keep storms in the region with a front coming near the region.

I don't see it looking like this i see it more straight up and down if not slightly NNW to SSE the way the storm is moving allow for this kinda setup to occur but overall i like the placement. I would like to see the actual storm track to know how far north to put the risks.

Parameters are rather good in our area, but just the parameters alone don't mean that we'll get the storms. I can't rule out an isolated thunderstorms north and west of NYC, but all of the moisture and precipitation on Friday will stay to our west, and with these factors missing, even with the supportive parameters I doubt we'll see much, if any thunderstorms. Of course, with the supportive parameters, any thunderstorm that pops up could easily be strong/severe, but the best chance of that will be towards PA/NY.

I agree, I am going to be making some revisions to the map tonight, and I'm going to make it more of a N/S direction. For now, I'll keep the potential 30% risk in place.

Just wondering what you think of the threat for Monday through Wedensday the GFS and ERCM have a very high Cape and pretty good shear environment for me with a cold front coming through.

Yea if I were making a map i would also go with a N/S direction risk. Slight risk down to southern MD to just near saranac lake or just south of the canadian and NY border. The risk would likely be to just about west of the NYC area with the highest risk from binghamton down to about harrisburg just west of allentown and near state college.

If something changes that area as well will change.

Monday and Tuesday, same story as Friday. Parameters are decent (missing bulk shear though), but other than scattered activity, there's nothing to really trigger a severe weather outbreak until we get to Wednesday, when the cold front should come through. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in parts of the NE where the front will be, but Wednesday's cold front brings a better risk of more significant severe weather.

Yea tuesday night into wednseday does look to also have the best paramaters and with the front moving in it could be interesting.

Friday doesn't look very impressive. It would be a very good idea to add today to this thread though, today should be the bigger day out of the two days focusing on Pennsylvania and New York. Friday's storms should be slightly weaker, but I still haven't changed my thinking on most of them staying to the west of NYC.

Friday looks to have stronger storms for my area but less coverage with the trough going pos. to neutral.

Odd, the latest forecast discussion out of Albany doesn't back up what you are saying. They think the activity will be more widespread on Friday.

"FRIDAY...THIS MAY BE THE DAY WHEN THE SEVERE THREAT IS MORE
EXPANSIVE AND WIDESPREAD OVER THE REGION. MOST OF THE REGION WILL
BE ENTRENCHED IS A VERY HUMID AIR MASS."
