A severe thunderstorm watch was issued Tuesday afternoon for central New York and the western Catskills region, including Delaware and Sullivan counties. The watch is in effect until 9 p.m.
Hudson Valley Weather writes that the storms in the forecast are the result of an incoming cold front that could send temperatures plunging for the next week or so.
The Catskills region may be in for some fierce storms this evening, which could bring hail as well as rain. But the approaching thunderstorms aren't likely to top 2013's Memorial Day weekend weather, when snowstorms blanketed the highest peaks of the Catskills in white.
