So that stormy weather headed our way? It's been happening in Queens and Long Island—the National Weather Service says its Doppler radar indicates a "severe thunderstorm capable of producing quarter-size hail" but Forgotten NY's Kevin Walsh sent us this photograph of hail that's "big enough to break things." In fact, there are many reports of vehicles and homes with broken windows due to large hail in New Hyde Park.
Long Island Rail Road riders on some lines will have to deal with service disruptions (check MTA.info), because lightning strikes along lines have messed up the evening commute. Service is back on the Ronkonkoma, Huntington/Port Jefferson and Hempstead, but there are delays. The Oyster Bay line is still out.
