Severe thunderstorms, including tornadoes and high wind are possible from the Outer Banks north to central New Jersey today.  The low-pressure center forming along the cold front may provide sufficient wind shear for severe thunderstorm development in the area.  These storms should develop during the afternoon.

Meanwhile, out west, rain and snow will fall in the northern Rockies as another cyclone moves out into the central Plains.  The trailing cold front will dive southward and east winds behind the front will create upslope flow and precipitation along the eastern-facing slopes of the Rockies.
