STORM WATCH: Strong to severe thunderstorms to impact NYC Thursday
New York City will be impacted by a line of strong to severe thunderstorms Thursday, Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Darryl Green says.
The line of thunderstorms will approach from New Jersey with gusts of 40-60 mph. The storms are weakening as they move near the coast due to the influence of the cooler marine environment. Small pea-sized hail is possible. Tornadic activity is not expected. Downpours can total to near 1 inches of rain.
The strongest storms will hit around 4 - 6 p.m. but showers should continue through 8-9 p.m.
