Strong to severe thunderstorms will erupt over the mid-Atlantic andSoutheast this morning, bringing hail, damaging winds and torrential rainfall.An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either, but the tornado threat isexpected to remain minimal.

The area of most concern lies from Philadelphia through Norfolk, Va., andsouthward to Savannah, Ga. Storms are expected to intensify around the time ofthe morning rush, meaning the morning commute could become quite hazardous. Bythe afternoon, most of the heavier weather should be east of I-95, but heavyrain will become a problem from New York through New England.
