Millions at risk for severe weather in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Memorial Day

• Accuweather

A stormy Memorial Day weekend across the nation will end with another risk of severe weather in the Northeast, where AccuWeather meteorologists warn that storms packing damaging winds, hail and torrential rain can impact outdoor observances for the holiday.

Following a relative lull in storm activity on Sunday in the region, Monday will be a different story. The same storm system that led to the deadly storms and tornadoes in the nation's midsection on Saturday and Saturday night, and again in the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys on Sunday, will emerge closer to the East Coast for the holiday.

"After multiple days in a row of the central U.S. facing severe weather, the threat will finally shift eastward on Memorial Day," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski. "The risk will extend from the Southeast northward into New York State, parts of New England and even into southern Canada."
