Severe weather, tornado causing damage in Ark City

A thunderstorm moves past Fairfax at night

The National Weather Service had received more than 100 severe storm reports shortly after 6 p.m., including reports of baseball-size hail and wind gusts up to 80 miles per hour. Jensenius said the storm took down trees along a 36-mile path beginning in Charlestown and running through Langdon, Acworth, Lempster, Bradford, and Warner, ending somewhere near Route 127 Webster. FOX 5's Mike Thomas says early storms are on the way out bringing an afternoon full of sunshine and temperatures in the 90s - but we're not out of the woods yet!

The tornado was reported around 3:30 p.m.

Update: An updated hazardous weather outlook issued by the National Weather Service at 10:16 a.m. warns an isolated tornado could not be ruled out, "mainly north and west of New York City".

There is also low risk of an isolated tornado across western or central MA, and northern CT.

Flood warnings also have been issued for the Des Plaines River near Gurnee, Russell, and Des Plaines, as it could rise above flood stage Tuesday and Wednesday in those areas, but severe flooding is not expected. Temperatures in the 80s and high humidity levels could produce severe weather conditions but the probability for hail or a tornado is low.


The severe threat will likely pass by about 9 p.m. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

A wall of strong storms will move through New England between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., meteorologist Chris Lambert said. Those storms could contain damaging winds, hail, and heavy rain.

Much of today's severe weather forecast hinges on continued northward migration of that front.

THURSDAY - Mostly Cloudy with Scattered Rain Showers.
