It won’t be so peaceful later today, according to the National Weather Service. It warns that “numerous thunderstorms” are expected to develop in mid-afternoon through mid to late evening. Those storms are forecast to hit Orleans County and much of Western New York.

“Some of these storms are expected to become severe with damaging winds and large hail,” the Weather Service advised.
