More severe weather is expected Wednesday as two cold fronts move through the eastern half of the U.S.

These storms will strike in several areas. The first spot is a cold front along the East Coast from Vermont to North Carolina. The biggest threat there will be damaging winds and some hail, but there's also an isolated threat for a quick, weak tornado. Also, flash flooding is possible in the East with these storms.

The second cold front will bring severe storms from the Great Lakes into the Plains. The biggest threat will be damaging winds and large hail, while an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Flash flooding could also be a threat for parts of Kansas and Missouri.
