Ridgewood Nj, the National Weather Service has declared a “Hazardous Weather Outlook” is for southern Connecticut, northeast New Jersey and southeast New York.

There is the possibility of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, with the main threat damaging wind gusts and possibly large hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out as well, mainly north and west of New York City.

In addition, locally heavy rainfall is possible with any stronger convection. While the main threat is for minor flooding of urban and poor drainage areas, there is a small chance for localized flash flooding.
