Briefly summarizing this morning’s activity, following overnight heavy storms north of NYC, scattered strong storms developed over Long Island, which has been frequently hit with strong/severe storms this year, with storms lasting through the morning and early afternoon hours. Some of these storms were severe, especially in western Long Island and parts of Queens/Brooklyn where a severe storm stalled, producing heavy rain with flash flooding, strong winds, and hail. Radar estimates show rain totals may have locally exceeded 2 inches.

The latest radar shows scattered storms developing over the area, some of them strong, especially over Staten Island. Scattered storms, some of them strong/severe with heavy rain, strong wind gusts and small hail, will continue to affect the area through the evening hours, with clearing skies later in the overnight hours.
