Strong gusts today; severe thunderstorm impact shifts south, east of city this afternoon

Today's Forecast

…WIND ADVISORY for Niagara, northern Erie (north of Rt. 20A), Orleans, and Genesee 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM Monday for possible wind gusts to 45-50 mph…

…There will be a slight risk of scattered severe thunderstorms across much of our broadcast area Monday, mainly south and east of Buffalo, primarily during the afternoon.  There will be a more limited chance of an isolated severe thunderstorm from the Buffalo metro northward into Niagara County.  The most significant threat will potentially be damaging straight line wind gusts, large hail, and there is a very limited chance of an isolated tornado spin up.

Occasional showers and thunderstorms with some heavy downpours are expected this morning.  We’ll see some breaks of sun on a very humid, and windy day.  New showers and thunderstorms start to fire up shortly after noon with the focus for most of the activity south and east of Buffalo.  Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible with potentially strong damaging wind gusts, large hail, heavy downpours, and a limited tornado potential.  Showers and thunderstorms wind down well south and east of Buffalo early this evening with a partly to mostly cloudy sky persisting through the night.   Some early drizzle is possible across the hills Tuesday morning, otherwise look for lingering clouds, and a better chance of some sunny breaks for the afternoon.

Sunshine increases for mid-late week. It will be very cool midweek, with a quick rebound by Friday.
