Numerous thunderstorms will begin developing in Western New England and Eastern New York during the midday and early afternoon. These storms will slowly begin to spread eastward during the afternoon and evening. It is possible that new storms will fire in Eastern New England during the afternoon, although they will likely be isolated to scattered in nature. Any storms that develop will have the potential to contain damaging wind, hail, and torrential rain. Heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue to move through during the overnight. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for parts of New York and Western New England, where the highest chance of flash flooding exists.
