Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for Tompkins County

A thunderstorm moves past Fairfax at night

The storms will start to intensify around 5 p.m., according to Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner. In addition, it is possible that one or two of these severe storms could spin up a brief tornado as well.

The storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, heavy rain, and hail into this evening as they move through the Tri-State area. Although the tornado threat is low, it is not zero.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Tuesday evening's Tigers and little league games should be in good shape weather-wise. It should stay mainly dry overnight with temperatures mostly in the 60s. There will be a high near 80, with a west northwest wind of 5 to 7 miles per hour.

Officials say that during the watch, people should review tornado safety rules and be prepared to move to a place of safety if threatening weather approaches.

As polls open at 7 a.m., the majority of the area should be dry. Come meet the Local4Casters and buy a weather radio at a special discounted price.
