Tornado watch in effect for New Haven
If you are planning on leaving your room today, you may want to think twice: the National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for New Haven County (that’s us), along with much of Connecticut and parts of New York and New Jersey.
According to this map from the National Weather Service, there’s a 5 to 10 percent chance a tornado will touch down in New Haven sometime day. The NWS is also predicting showers and thunderstorms likely through 1 a.m. today.
