    Violent Storms Cruise NYC, NJ, New England

    While the main risk to lives and property remains from flash and urban flooding early this week, a few storms can bring damaging winds and large hail.

    During Monday midday, a couple of storms have had enough favorable conditions to produce a couple of spin-up tornadoes over northern New Jersey and western Connecticut.

    The same system was rolling northeastward across portions of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and the southern tip of Maine Monday afternoon.

    The storms are occurring as a disturbance rolls northeastward along the boundary between hot and humid air offshore and a corridor of drenching downpours.

    A similar setup exists for Tuesday, allowing for a few more brief isolated tornadoes.


    People should be alert for rapidly changing weather conditions from New Jersey to central and southern New England Monday afternoon.

    There is a possibility of a couple of rain-wrapped tornadoes.

    If a tornado warning is issued for your area, move indoors, away from windows, preferable in a basement or small interior room.

    A similar setup late last week produced funnel clouds and at least one tornado in central Pennsylvania.
