The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a special weather statement, warning that severe thunderstorms are possible late this morning through early this afternoon.

A line of strong to severe thunderstorms over southern Ontario, Lake Erie, and northeast Ohio will move into Western New York late this morning, then move east to the Genesee Valley by midday or early afternoon.

If this line of storms maintains intensity, it may produce strong winds and some wind damage as it moves across the area. Be prepared to seek shelter if thunderstorms approach, the Weather Service said.
