Cold Front Will Bring Risk For Severe Storms

The cold front I covered in the previous blog entry will be moving into very moist air in the Mid-Atlantic. During the hottest part of the day, the front may serve as the necessary forcing mechanism to kick off clusters of thunderstorms capable of damaging wind gusts. If these storms can coalesce into a line of storms, the line can produce locally strong straight-line winds at the surface, especially if the shape of the line bows out a little. Stay with CBS 6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm!
