Watch Issued

Severe Thunderstorm Watch #550 has been issued. This is quite a massive watch, encompasing most of New York and about 70% of Pennsylvania. With a watch that large, probablities aren't overly helpful for local forecasts. Nonetheless, there is an 80% chance of 10+ wind damage reports and a 70% chance of 10+ hail reports within the watch area. The watch runs until 7PM.

There really hasn't been anything developing yet, thought there is one shower in Western New York that has popped up, so I am expecting more storms to fire during the next couple of hours. The next SPC outlook will be out by 12:30. It will be interesting to see if they change anything.
