According to AccuWeather, there will be several factors that will play a role in determining how strong and widespread storms become. The evolution of the severe weather threat on Sunday afternoon will depend exactly on how far a complex of rains and thunderstorms has progressed in the Great Lakes region.

Then a stagnant storm will trigger rounds of rain at various locations from New England to the mid-Atlantic through the middle of the week, according to AccuWeather. The storm will carry moisture from the Atlantic Ocean, allowing wet weather from the Maine coast to the interior of New York’s Mohawk Valley on Monday and continuing through Wednesday.
