A New Weather Watch

The Storm Prediction Center just issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Central New York and points south until 10 PM. This watch replaces the tornado watch that has been in effect. This doesn't mean the tornado threat is totally gone, however. A lot of the severe weather composite index values that are used to predict severe weather show a semi-tornadic environment overhead. However, wind damage and hail will continue to be the main threats for the rest of the day.

Onto the radar now. As you can see, thunderstorms have again developed to our west into a bit of a broken line. Like this morning, these aren't severe. However, I expect these to strengthen as they head into the more favorable atmosphere sitting over us.

Stay tuned throughout the afternoon and evening as round 2 begins!
