ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A line of gusty thunderstorms is developing and moving through the region midday on Thursday and will continue to strengthen east of Rochester into the afternoon.

A brief downpour and gust of wind is what most of us will deal with but areas of Wayne County and the Finger Lakes may get a brief strong to severe storm before it clears after 1 to 2 p.m.

The risk of flooding looks low at this time as the heavy rain will be brief and not amount to enough to create new flash flooding. A few strong wind gusts are possible so local tree damage and power outages will be possible but very isolated.

Once the storms clear after 2 p.m. the rest of the day will feature nice weather. Stay tuned to News10NBC for updates into the afternoon and as you are out and about get the latest from the News10NBC WeatherApp.
