Heavy and gusty thunderstorms are threatening to cause damage and flooding across parts of the mid-Atlantic and into far southern New England, including the New York City area.
A widespread outbreak of violent thunderstorms is not unfolding, but a handful of strong thunderstorms are creating issues to close out Sunday.
The heaviest thunderstorms are producing blinding and flooding downpours, while some of the other stronger thunderstorms will unleash damaging winds and hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
