Severe Thunderstorm alerts issued for all of CNY
Updated at 9:20PM
A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH continues for Jefferson and Lewis counties until 11PM this evening.
A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is issued to alert you to the possibility that thunderstorms containing damaging winds of 58 mph or higher and/or large hail of 1” in diameter or bigger may develop at some point during the next several hours. A watch does not mean severe weather is occurring. A warning is issued when severe weather is imminent.
**Keep an eye on any pop-up storm tonight - as they could rapidly intensify and become severe.**
If your area has a severe thunderstorm watch, here is what you should do:
-- Go about your normal activities, but be aware of the possibility of severe weather developing.
-- Keep an eye on Interactive Doppler and Triple Doppler radars on CNYcentral.com.
-- Keep your phone with your CNYcentral mobile app turned on so if warnings are issued you will know.
-- Periodically check NBC-3, CBS-5 and CW-6 for updates on the weather and possible warnings.
-- Plan how to get to a safe place quickly if a warning is issued for your area or if severe weather is observed where you are.
