East-Central New York will start experiencing storms as early as 2pm. As they move east, the nasty weather is expected to hit the Capital Region just in time for the ride home - between 4pm and 6pm.

Needless to say, the roads are going to be busy this afternoon with the start of the Holiday weekend. The bad weather will make traveling a bit more treacherous.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for this afternoon and for Saturday, where more storms are possible.
