A storm system that moved through the Tri-State Thursday morning brought heavy rain, hail and lightning, and a thunderstorm watch remains in the area for most of Thursday evening.

All other flood warnings have been cancelled but most of the tri-state area remains under a flood watch.

The slow-moving storm system produced one-half to three-quarter inch diameter hail across the Tri-State and caused localized flooding and ponding on the roadways,

The National Weather Service says an inch of rain fell between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. across the Tri-State. Some areas saw as much as 1.5 inches of rain between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The FOX19 Weather Team says the risk of severe weather will be with us the rest of the afternoon and into the early evening. The Storm Prediction Center has put us at a 'slight risk' for severe weather.
