The flood and tornado threat area for Hurricane Lee currently covers an area from Birmingham Alabama northeast to the Mason-Dixon line.

A lot of airports in the coverage area.

The OP was refrencing the weather at IAD on Sat morning....string of storms came down from PA and impacted the airport for about 90 minutes. kgaiflyer is correct....Lee's remnants will impact the eastern seaboard in a day or so and probably cause disruption.

Point taken. I'm down the peninsula from SFO taking a sanity break from the DC area.

I should arrive back just in time for Hurricane Lee.
