Severe Thunderstorms Possible This Evening

September 22, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The weather folks are saying to be extra careful this afternoon/evening as any thunderstorms that do erupt may bring down trees or branches already weakened or hanging precariously due to the tornado.

..STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WILL IMPACT BERGEN…BRONX…ESSEX… FAIRFIELD…HUDSON…KINGS (BROOKLYN)…NASSAU…NEW YORK (MANHATTAN)…NORTHERN UNION…PASSAIC…QUEENS…ROCKLAND…SOUTHERN ORANGE…WESTCHESTER AND WESTERN SUFFOLK COUNTIES…

AT 728 PM EDT…NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR WAS TRACKING STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ALONG A LINE EXTENDING FROM GREENWOOD LAKE TO FLORHAM PARK…OR ALONG A LINE EXTENDING FROM SLOATSBURG TO MADISON…AND MOVING EAST AT 45 MPH.

PEOPLE IN BERGEN…BRONX…ESSEX…FAIRFIELD…HUDSON…KINGS (BROOKLYN)…NASSAU…NEW YORK (MANHATTAN)…NORTHERN UNION… PASSAIC…QUEENS…ROCKLAND…SOUTHERN ORANGE…WESTCHESTER AND WESTERN SUFFOLK COUNTIES…INCLUDING POMPTON LAKES…RINGWOOD… BLOOMINGDALE…GREENWOOD LAKE…SUMMIT…FAIRFIELD…MILLBURN… SLOATSBURG…WAYNE AND CALDWELL…SHOULD MONITOR THE WEATHER SITUATION CLOSELY. LISTEN FOR POSSIBLE WARNINGS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION SHOULD SEVERE WEATHER THREATEN.

HAIL UP TO NICKEL SIZE…AND GUSTY WINDS UP TO 50 MPH ARE EXPECTED WITH THESE STORMS. IN ADDITION…VERY HEAVY RAIN…WITH RAINFALL RATES OF UP TO ONE AND ONE HALF INCHES AN HOUR…IS OCCURRING WITH THESE STORMS. THIS COULD CAUSE PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS… AND MINOR FLOODING OF POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.

LIGHTNING IS ONE OF NATURES NUMBER ONE KILLERS. REMEMBER…IF YOU CAN HEAR THUNDER…YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. MOVE TO SAFE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY.
