Severe storms with damaging winds, one-inch hail on the way to sweep the area


Fay may be out of the way, but a new round of potentially severe thunderstorms is on the way to sweep the area.

Tropical storm Fay weakened rapidly after making landfall on Friday afternoon, July 10 in New Jersey.

But about 24 hours later, on Saturday, July 11, numerous rains and thunderstorms are expected to disperse throughout the area this evening until night, the National Weather Service said.

“There is the potential for some of these storms to become severe, with major threats from damaging winds, one-inch hail and localized flash floods,” the meteorological service said in a Dangerous Weather Outlook statement released Saturday morning. .

Saturday will be partly sunny, warm and humid with a high temperature in the upper 80’s.

The probability of showers and thunderstorms will start around 1 pm on Saturday. Showers become likely after 3pm, and the chance for storms will also increase.

The probability of showers and thunderstorms will continue until 10 pm on Saturday.

Sunday July 12 will be mostly sunny with a high temperature in the upper 80s.

New amounts of rain between a quarter and a half inch are possible.
