Last week the weather was fantastic all over New York State. It was the week with the most expected weather, as March and April brought less than stellar weather with a good amount of rain, snow and cold temperatures.
As pleasant as last week was, the start of this week will have a much different story for the weather.
High temperatures for Monday will only be in the 60s and will be even cooler on Tuesday as high temperatures will only be in the 50s here in Western New York.
The National Weather Service on Sunday announced the threat of severe weather for Monday across New York State.
Those living west of Geneva and Fulton will see the greatest risk of severe thunderstorms on Monday. Upstate New York and upstate areas near New York City have an increased risk of severe weather.
Areas of western New York have the least risk, but still a threat of severe weather on Monday.
The main threat from these severe thunderstorms is destructive wind, which could knock down tree branches and power lines. Hail and heavy rain showers are also possible with these severe thunderstorms.
Thunderstorms will develop in the late morning and move east-northeast through Monday afternoon.
Be aware of this if you’re going to be out on Monday, or even just driving. As we know, even a brief downpour accompanied by hail can significantly reduce driver visibility.
