Strong Storms, Drenching Downpours & Possibility for Tornado to come late afternoon thru evening

...Strong to severe thunderstorms possible later this afternoon

and evening...

While there will be some showers and possible thunderstorms over

the region into the midday hours...the time of concern will be

later this afternoon and evening when a cold front will push

across the state. This front will generate a second round of

storms that could reach severe limits.

Winds aloft will be dangerously favorable for strong to severe

thunderstorms with damaging winds...but cloud cover from this

mornings shower activity could limit the amount of energy

available for the late day storms. Simply put...the more sun we

receive today...the greater the threat. The severe weather

potential will be greatest between 3 and 6 PM for the far western

counties...between 5 and 8 PM for the Finger Lakes region...and

between 7 and 10 PM for the Eastern Lake Ontario region.

Along with the risk for widespread severe weather...there will be

heightened concern for flooding due to slow moving downpours and very wet existing conditions.
