SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH

SevereThunderstormWatch_1200x750.jpg

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for parts of central New York.

This severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 11pm.

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.

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.
