Severe Thunderstorm Watch, New York and Vermont

Normally, I don’t cover severe thunderstorm watches. However, given the number of people working outdoors (power restoration, rebuilding roads, etc.) after Irene, I thought it was important to do so.

The watch also includes parts of Pennsylvania, but this area was not affected by Irene.

Remember, a severe thunderstorm watch means that winds of 60 mph or more and hail ≥1″ may occur with the thunderstorms. These storms may also cause heavy rain and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning.

Please monitor local weather and make sure you are indoors when a thunderstorm approaches.
