Risk of severe weather stretches across upper US

ABC News(NEW YORK) — A risk of severe storms on Thursday stretches from Wyoming all the way to New Jersey.

In Wisconsin on Wednesday, two tornadoes were reported. More than 40 damaging storms were reported in Michigan and Illinois, where wind gusts exceeded 70 mph.

An active storm pattern should continue Thursday in the Midwest, and it’s moving farther into the Northeast.

Damaging winds and large hail would be the biggest threat for Binghamton, New York, to Washington, D.C.

The tornado threat will be small in the Northeast; there, a funnel cloud or two shouldn’t be ruled out.

Another storm system in the Plains may bring severe storms to much of Nebraska.

On Friday, more storms are expected in the Plains — not only in Nebraska, but also Kansas, Iowa and northern Missouri.

Rainfall is expected from the Rocky Mountains to the Northeast over the next few days, with some areas potentially getting more than 3 inches.
