Strong to severe thunderstorms could roll through coastal areas Tuesday night, forecasters say.
But the greatest threat for severe weather is along and northwest of the Interstate 95 corridor, according to a Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ.
“A warm and muggy air mass has its grip on our area, and combined with a slowly approaching cold front and a disturbance aloft, some showers and thunderstorms will be triggered,” said Doug Simonian, forecaster at New York Metro Weather.
Forecasters say that the primary hazard expected is strong wind, although marginally small hail and brief heavy rain are also possible.
A line of storms is expected in Philadelphia between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
