AccuWeather Alert: Tornadoes possible in afternoon storms in NYC region

The WFMY News 2 Weather team is tracking it for you.

We’re starting off the week with a Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Alert for the potential of severe storms and even an isolated tornado in parts of MA.

Flash flooding is also possible throughout New York, New Jersey and CT as part of this storm.

The Northeast could also see flash flooding.

The Storm Prediction Center is now anticipating a slight to enhanced risk of scattered nasty thunderstorms as depicted here in this chart.

Chances of showers or thunderstorms are small until after 6 p.m. Lessor said a line of showers and thunderstorms will likely pass through the region between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. After that, there should be decreasing risk of any severe weather but downpours and lightning could very well linger into the early morning hours Tuesday over eastern and southeastern Mass.

“The best opportunity for showers and storms on your Monday will be directly ahead of the cold front”, Walls said. Even though the system is expected to move onshore well to our west, the plume of tropical moisture associated with it could help to ramp up rainfall totals in parts of our area for the second half of the week.

Up to two to three inches of rain are forecast to fall in western MA through late Monday night, with lower amounts to the south and east.
