Severe thunderstorm watch until 11 pm


Rochester, NY - A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for all of WNY until 11 pm this evening.

Thunderstorms are tracking into WNY this evening. We expect the chance for rain and thunder in the region from 4 pm west of Rochester through 7 pm east of Rochester.

At this time it appears that most of the expected thunderstorms this evening would be garden variety storms with beneficial and needed rainfall.

However, a few strong storms may also develop, especially for areas south and east of Rochester. Areas from the Finger Lakes to near Utica stand the highest chance of seeing briefly strong thunderstorms.

Any rain and thunder that does develop won't last long as this line is moving at near highway speeds from the west to the east. Cooler and much less humid air will replace the tropical air mass overnight with clearing and a low near 60 degrees.
