Question about severe turbulence PIREPS on East Coast

In the last couple of days I've noticed several reports of severe turbulence, many at cruising altitudes, by large planes (e.g. B777 and A320; there are a couple of reports right now on the map). Considering how rare that is supposed to be, I was curious if anyone know what's causing it. The maps I know how to read wouldn't predict it.

Thanks!
