More Storms with Hail and Isolated Tornadoes Possible in Central New York
Tis the season for storms in central New York and another one could hit this afternoon, bringing hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes. So, a repeat of Sunday afternoon.
The National Weather Service says there is a "risk of severe thunderstorms" in Oneida, Onondaga and Madison counties. "Some storms will produce large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes."
Looks like the biggest threat for CNY is between 12-5pm.
If you have outdoor work, do it this morning. TYou don't want to get caught mid project like the guy in Rome who was bound and determined to finish before Sunday's storm hit.
The storms keep coming. Another round of potentially strong to severe thunderstorms is possible Saturday night. Oh goodie!
