NEW YORK - Thunderstorms were forecast for Tuesday afternoon in the Tri-State Region with the most severe weather, including the potential for tornadoes, forecast for northwestern New Jersey. The storms were expected to roll in after 3 p.m. By the evening, the storm system had moved out of the region.
A weather system out of the Great Lakes collided with unstable air over the New York City region, creating strong storms, particularly in western New Jersey and the Hudson Valley.
Meteorologist Audrey Puente said northwestern New Jersey was under an enhanced risk of severe weather with damaging winds, hail, and possible tornadoes.
Wind gusts were expected to reach above 25 mph.
