A swath of severe thunderstorms has severely disrupted travel in the northeast US, according to AccuWeather.
Major cities affected include Philadelphia; New York City; Boston; Wilmington, Delaware; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Hartford, Connecticut; Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
The storm has particularly disrupted travel in New York City.
A break of severe weather over New England and the upper part of the mid-Atlantic is expected today, May 16, but showers will continue to frequent areas from Ohio to Pennsylvania and southeastern New York state.
Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to spread northward later in the week and into this weekend as tropical moisture moves up from the Southern states.
While there will be the potential for a localized severe thunderstorm, the greatest risk for heavy rain and flash flooding on a regional basis is from Friday to Saturday.
