June 25, 2012 Morning Update

NOTE: Regular daily discussions, along with updated 5-day forecasts for the entire area, will resume starting tonight.


10:35 AM: A line of heavy rain and thunderstorms, containing frequent lightning and hail in some areas, moved through NYC earlier this morning and is now over Long Island and southern CT. Based on radar estimates, northern NJ mostly missed the storms, with most areas seeing less than 1/4 inch except for NE NJ, with up to 1/2 inch in SE NY and 1/2 to as much as 2 inches in NYC, Long Island, and southern CT.

This line of storms will continue to move out, although the cold front itself is still to the west, slowly approaching. The front will move through NYC around the early afternoon hours, with additional scattered thunderstorms possible especially from NYC and further east. Some of the afternoon storms could be strong and/or severe, although the afternoon storms should be less widespread than the storms observed this morning. Temperatures will reach the lower to mid 70s inland and the mid to upper 70s across the rest of the area.

The next full discussion will be posted tonight, with more information about the thunderstorm and brief heat potential for next weekend.
