New York, Washington in Path of Thunder, and Maybe a Tornado

Tornado watches were posted from Maryland to North Carolina

New York City and Washington could be in for some window-rattling thunderstorms and gusty winds later on Friday. 

Tornado watches were posted from Maryland to North Carolina early Friday, indicating the atmosphere was primed for the destructive storms, the National Weather Service said. As the day wears on, that risk will likely roll north into New Jersey, the upper Hudson River Valley and even potentially graze New York City.
