A big storm is approaching New York right now, and the sky is turning very dark and ominous. You can watch the  live cam from the Statue of Liberty. Here's a sample image:

The rain has just started in lower Manhattan. Here's the camera now:

While the tornado watch has been canceled, there's still a chance of the storm being severe. Wind gusts could top 60 miles per hour, according to New York 1. The worst should clear out by 4:30 p.m, though it could continue raining for another few hours according to meteorologist Eric Holthaus

The images aren't all that bad. Here are some more images being shared on Twitter:
