NWS: Storms May Reach Central Vermont By Evening

1150 AM EDT TUE JUL 17 2012

…SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND POSSIBLE FLASH FLOODING EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY…

THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP BY EARLY AFTERNOON JUST NORTH OF THE
INTERNATIONAL BORDER, AND MOVE INTO NORTHERN SECTIONS OF VERMONT
AND NEW YORK BY MID-AFTERNOON. THE STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE
SOUTHEAST, AND INTO SOUTH CENTRAL VERMONT BY EARLY EVENING.

SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME SEVERE,
PRIMARILY PRODUCING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH. HAIL
IS ALSO POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGEST THUNDERSTORMS AS WELL.

ALL THE STORMS WILL PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL, AND THERE IS A RISK
OF ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING. ALTHOUGH FLOODING COULD OCCUR
ANYWHERE, NORTHERN VERMONT IS MORE SUCCEPTIBLE DUE TO RECENT
RAINFALL.

DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE ALSO A THREAT WITH
ANY THUNDERSTORM.
