A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for the entire region with storms now likely during the afternoon and evening on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

The main threat will be strong, damaging winds and hail, the National Weather Service said. A couple of tornadoes are also possible. (See first image above.)

The watch went into effect just before 1 p.m. Wednesday and lasts until 9 p.m. Wednesday.

After a pleasant day on Thursday, Sept. 5 with sunny skies and a high temperature in the upper 70s, the New York metropolitan area is in the range for Tropical Storm-force winds from Dorian on Friday, Sept. 6 into Saturday, Sept. 7. (See second image above.)

The National Weather Service said it now has increased confidence of rough surf and dangerous rip currents in this area through Saturday.

Friday will be mostly cloudy with a high temperature in the low 70s. Rain is possible Friday afternoon and will become likely Friday night.

Dorian is expected to finally push off the east coast Saturday, which will be a pleasant day with mostly sunny skies and a high temperature in the mid 70s.
