Derecho Potential Video Briefing

Apologies for the bad sound quality, a nasty cold I have adds to the distortion thanks to the video itself.

Severe Storms Initiate in Northeast

There is a severe thunderstorm watch over parts of the Northeast and Ohio Valley, as strong to severe thunderstorms quickly get going in the mentioned regions.

It is very possible that this line could form more storms to the southwest, and these storms could produce a derecho based on the derecho composite values seen below.

This could become a very violent situation in a very short amount of time should storms form in the southern Ohio/West Virginia area. This entire situation will need a lot of monitoring for the rest of the day, and I will be closely watching storm development through the day.
