Weather forecast: Strong Storms Possible Thursday Afternoon

Ample instability will support a few strong to marginally severe storms, especially across the Finger Lakes. Anything that does get frisky will be capable of producing stronger wind gusts and hail, alongside heavy rain and frequent lightning. After sunset we’ll watch our risk decline as storms lose the heat of the day and move east.
