5:30 PM | Powerful storms closing in on the entire NYC metro region

Discussion

Powerful thunderstorms are firing up just to the west and north of the NYC metro region and these storms will progress eastward over the next few hours. The hours between 6 and 9PM will see much of the metro region getting hit by these storms with very heavy rainfall, possible damaging wind gusts and even some hail. Warm, but less humid conditions are in store this weekend and then even cooler air is headed our way for much of next week, but for the next few hours, stay on guard for potential severe thunderstorms.
