M. Ressler, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



As heavy 1-to-2-inch rains along a potent cold front track eastward from southeast Michigan, the Ohio Valley, the Tennessee Valley and the lower Mississippi Valley toward the East Coast, strong-to-occasionally-severe thunderstorms will track across the eastern Ohio Valley, southern Mid-Atlantic States and the Southeast. Damaging wind gusts are the main threat, but an isolated tornado is possible in the Southeast. As the cold air races in behind the front and an upper level disturbance zips northward along it, snow, locally heavy, started in Missouri and has rapidly increased northeastward into Lower Michigan. A quick 1 to 4 inches are accumulating. Dense fog lingers over the Northeast across New York City, the Hudson Valley and New England except for the northern portions of New Hampshire and Vermont. The fog should gradually lift overnight as increasing southerly winds finally mix out the shallow cold air. Lake effect snow will increase over Upper Michigan and western Lower Michigan tonight as the initial snow in the wake of the cold front ends. Lake effect snow will be on the increase over northeast Ohio northwest Pennsylvania, southwest New York and central Upstate New York Friday.
