National Weather Service Detection of Tropical Storms in the Central Mid-Atlantic and Eastern U.S. Over the Memorial Day Weekend

The National Weather Service stated that there would be a stretch from Alabama to upstate New York. Forecasters said the storms could lead to intense rainfall in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, with flash flooding possible. There is a chance of tornadoes from Maryland to the Catskill Mountains in New York, according to the NWS.

“Additionally, heavy rain may lead to scattered instances of flash flooding with this initial burst of thunderstorms,” the weather service added. “By the afternoon hours another round of showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop along a cold front and impact similar regions, with the severe threat shifting further east across the Ohio Valley overnight.”

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings in several states over the Memorial Day weekend. The Fort Worth NWS office said that one of the storms was likely to havegolf ball sized hail.

A large swath of the eastern U.S. is bracing for severe weather as the Memorial Day weekend comes to a close. Deadly storms over the long weekend also knocked out power to hundreds of thousands across the South and disrupted holiday travel at busy airports in the northeast.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear declared a state of emergency on X early Monday in his state. “Severe weather continues to move through the commonwealth with multiple reports of wind damage and tornadoes,” Beshear wrote.

Hundreds of thousands of residents were without power early Monday across a broad swath stretching from Texas to Virginia, according to the website Forecasters warned the greatest risk from storms will move east.

At least eighteen people are dead and hundreds of others are injured due to tornadoes and thunderstorms in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas late Saturday and early Sunday.

In a news conference Monday, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said four people were killed in four different counties after storms ripped through most of the state on Sunday. In the afternoon, Beshear confirmed a fifth storm related death.

It could have been worse, according to Beshear. “The people of Kentucky are very weather aware with everything we’ve been through.”

The east of Charleston saw some damage on Sunday night. In the year 2021, a number of communities in western Kentucky was ravaged by tornadoes that killed 81 people.

There were many people that were put back together, but then this happened, according to the emergency management director. The houses and everything are the same.

The White House said the Federal Emergency Management Agency was on the ground conducting damage assessments with state and local authorities. President Biden has directed federal agencies to provide support as needed.
