The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for an area of NY, including Chenango, Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie counties until 8 p.m. tonight.

Dew points around 3 p.m. today are between 65-70 degrees for the most part. The primary threat with any severe thunderstorms will be damaging straight line wind gusts. People should also keep watch of water levels while they are waiting out the thunderstorm as they can rise quickly and lead to flash flooding.

"The area of greatest concern is across western and central MA into northern CT, but cannot rule out across the rest of the region", the weather service says in a hazardous weather statement.

Temperatures will climb into the 80s across most of the state.

South Jersey is under a tornado watch Saturday night until 1 a.m. Sunday.

Almost 100 customers without power in Germantown are expected to have the issue fixed by 5:30 p.m., according to National Grid.

Wind gusts were expected to hit 30 miles per hour as the storm moved through the region.

There is a 50 percent chance of rain on Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service for Boston has recently been tweeting out advisories about potential severe thunderstorms that could be hitting the area later today. We could see this front stall over the area with a lingering chance for a few showers and thunderstorms into Monday. The threat for significant severe weather seems low yet this environment can produce wet micro bursts along with some hail.

Over the past weekend, storms soaked the metro area and brought in low-lying clouds over downtown.

High winds themselves could lead to trees being knocked down and possible power outages.
