A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now in effect for the tristate area.

The watch, issued just before 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, is in effect until 9 p.m. The watch covers New York City, Long Island, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange and Fairfield counties.

Showers and thunderstorms that will bring drenching downpours, thunder, frequent lightning and damaging wind gusts to the region are likely Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Localized flash flooding and hail are also possible, the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Statement.

Strong wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour could bring down trees and tree limbs, leading to power outages.

A half-inch of rainfall is possible during the day with another half-inch at night.

Look for storm activity to wrap up by 3 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 1.

The passage of the storms will lead to more comfortable temperatures to end the workweek.
