A disturbance will spark a round of severe weather on Saturday from Illinois to New Jersey with nearly 35 million people at risk for severe weather. The main, and most-widespread, threat is for damaging to destructive winds in parts of the northern mid-Atlantic. Large hail and brief tornadoes will also be likely with storms that fire up later today.
An enhanced risk for severe weather is in place today in parts of southern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and much of Maryland and Delaware. In the enhanced risk region there is a concern for intense thunderstorms that could bring a few rounds of damaging to destructive winds Saturday afternoon and evening. Brief tornadoes and large hail also are a possibility.
