Storms hug the coast this weekend

Outdoor plans are in jeopardy on Saturday in both the Northeast and in the West. Out east, storms are impacting the Northeast, and it is likely to be a blustery weekend from the mid-Atlantic to New England following a wet week in parts of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Sunday, the focus shifts to a severe weather threat across Pennsylvania and into Ohio.

NOAA's Storm Prediction Center is highlighting parts of the Plains in a Level 3 out of 5 severe weather risk with Oklahoma City and Wichita, Kansas in the heart of the threat. Thunderstorms are likely to develop Monday afternoon and bring potential for tornadoes, very large hail and damaging winds.
