Severe thunderstorms which have brought hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes to the Plains this week will move eastward on Friday, and AccuWeather forecasters say that residents in the Northeast should be on alert. High temperatures ranging from the upper 80s to the mid-90s are on the way for close to 100 million people in the Northeast this weekend as stifling heat typical of the middle of summer will be felt from Ohio to North Carolina and Maine.
In many areas, the heat and humidity this Saturday and Sunday will bring the hottest conditions since last August, and in some locations, record highs that have stood for more than 100 years could be broken. AccuWeather's Bernie Rayno (@AccuRayno) and Kristina Shalhoup (@ShalhoupWX) have the details on that plus storms for the west on today's "Weather Insider" Podcast!
