More strong thunderstorms likely today in Orleans County
The National Weather Service in Buffalo says damaging thunderstorm winds and hail are headed to Orleans County today, with the strongest storms found over the region between noon and 2 p.m.
Showers and thunderstorms over southern Ontario at 7 a.m. will cross the Niagara Frontier through 10 a.m. While this activity could include some heavy rain, a greater chance for significant weather will be found during the midday and afternoon as a warm front will approach from Ohio, the Weather Service said.
“A broken line of showers and strong thunderstorms is then expected to cross the region after 11 a.m.,” the Weather Service said. “This line of storms will have the potential to become strong to severe, particularly across the Southern Tier.”
