Strong Storms Linger Into Monday Night From Texas to New York

A potent storm system will continue across the Central states into Monday night, but this time the activity will be farther to the east. After violent thunderstorms rattled the Plains both days of the weekend, the threat zone will shift eastward from the Lower Michigan Peninsula to southern and coastal Texas.

"The area of low pressure that caused so much weather havoc the last few days will lift north into the Great Lakes region on Monday," stated AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Becky Elliott.

"As it does, it will send a cold front through the midsection of the country," Elliott added. This front will be the focal point for the violent thunderstorms.

"The tornado threat will be greatly diminished from the last few days," continued Elliott, "with damaging winds, hail and flash flooding existing as the main threats. However, with as potent as this storm system has been, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out."
While the threat for blinding and flooding downpours will be equal throughout the day, the concern for damaging winds and hail will be highest through the evening.

Strong storms will linger into Monday night in two main areas; one batch of storms will move through upstate New York southwest into eastern Kentucky while another batch of storms will linger across Texas and Louisiana. The main threats will be locally damaging winds and flash flooding.
The storm will push thunderstorms into the Northeast on Tuesday, but widespread severe weather is not expected.
However, a small number of Tuesday's storms may still produce gusty winds or small hail.
The greatest threat into Tuesday night looks to be flash flooding across Texas as rain will once again visit some areas that were frequented by torrential downpours over the weekend.
