Heavy Rain Thunderstorms Underway
We have seen waves of heavy rains moving through as tropical air continues to surge northward. Temperatures have been slowly rising and the highs for the day will be between 6pm and midnight when some areas will reach 60. There is the threat for severe thunderstorms this evening. We are keeping a close eye on the strong arm of clouds and moisture that are sweeping up from the southwest. A major storm is working its way through the Ohio Valley and it is on its way to Western New York late tonight.
Further south there is actually an area of moderate risk of severe thundertorms in Eastern Virginia and Eastern North Carolina and tornadoes are possible in this area.

Right now there are heavy rains and thunderstorms blossoming to the south in Virginia and these will be moving over us for the evening rush hour drive. Look for localized flooding of poor drainage areas when this area moves through.
2 inches or more of rain is likely over a widespread area and there could be some isolated 3 inch amounts in places that get hit with heavier thunderstorms.
Storm warnings and a Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for the Coastal Waters. For Long Island the high tide along the south shore comes this evening and this could time out with the arrival of the strong thunderstorms. This could add to the tidal flooding so residents should be watching things closely. Right now flooding is expected to be minor in nature.
