SEVERE WEATHER FORMING EXPANDING MOVING RAPIDLY EAST

 

SEVERE WEATHER FORMING EXPANDING MOVING RAPIDLY EAST – Good afternoon everyone. That little innocuous “seed” I pointed out a couple of hours ago is growing, strengthening, and on the move towards central/eastern PA and then eventually into the NYC metro area.

Tornado watches and severe thunderstorm watches have been posted for central and eastern PA, central and upstate NYC, and we’ve already had our first tornado warning in west/central PA. Look for those watches, and unfortunately, warnings to expand and move east as the day goes on.

Widespread severe storms are expected throughout the area. In our immediate area, NYC is at the highest relative risk, but don’t be surprised if some storms hold onto severe status across Long Island; especially in central Nassau and the north shores of both Nassau and Suffolk. Also, we are at a slight risk that storms could hold together for the south shore of Long Island, so everyone needs to be prepared and not take things lightly; especially since things will be moving rapidly once they make it into the area.

Again, the array or risks will be across the spectrum – damaging straight-line winds, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, torrential rain, flash flooding, large hail, and isolated/brief tornadoes. Secure all of your light weight outdoor furniture over the next few hours, and take necessary steps to protect young flowers/vegetables just planted. Seek shelter immediately upon any warnings that may pop up.

As of this moment, nothing has grown into a Derecho-type system, but we are well on our way to a squall line type scenario at minimum. The greatest chance for severe weather remains just west and northwest of the NYC area, but we are not out of the woods by any means whatsoever for New York City and Long Island. For this reason, please stay tuned to your local weather, especially Joe Cioffi, and pay attention to any warnings.
