Rain and possible thunderstorms will wash out NYC Memorial Day

Morning fog gave way to scattered showers, with possible afternoon and evening thunderstorms moving into the New York City region on Monday.

Localized flash flooding and some severe thunderstorms are possible, the National Weather Service (NWS) predicted. Gusty winds and hail are expected to threaten Long Island on Memorial Day.

The northwestern New York City metro area was warned of thunderstorms that could also move through parts of Long Island and southwestern Connecticut later in the day.

“Wind gusts of more than 93 km/h could damage trees and power lines,” meteorologists reported. “Hail with a diameter of approximately one inch may occur, which may result in minor damage to motor vehicles.”
