9:12 PM: The severe thunderstorm is currently over Queens, and continues to move SE. This storm continues to weaken, and is expected to produce heavy rain, as well as gusty winds and potentially small hail for places near and east of JFK airport. There is also an area of heavy rain near SE CT, which is moving SE and offshore.
As I am working on tonight’s post, the storm coverage has ended for today. Tonight’s post will be posted by 10 PM, with more details on any storm potential tomorrow and Sunday.
8:50 PM: The Tornado Warning has been cancelled for the immediate NYC area, however a severe thunderstorm warning is still in place for New York City. The storm has weakened, however it is still capable of producing small hail and gusty winds for Manhattan, Queens and western Long Island, including places just north and east of JFK airport.
8:20 PM: ***WARNING: All of Manhattan, northern Brooklyn and western Queens are now under a Tornado Warning***. The storm has slightly weakened, however it is still capable of producing moderate sized hail, damaging wind gusts and a potential tornado as it continues moving southeast.
7:59 PM: ***WARNING: A Tornado Warning is in effect for southern Bergen, eastern Passaic and Hudson counties in NJ***. A severe storm capable of producing damaging wind gusts and large hail, as well as a potential tornado, is currently in central Passaic county, moving southeast. The areas mentioned above are in this storm’s path, with southern Manhattan and Brooklyn also in the storm’s eventual path. Places to the north of that axis will get heavy rain and thunder, but no severe storms.
