Potential For Severe Weather For The Hudson Valley
While the temperatures this weekend haven’t be record-breaking, the humidity certainly feels like it. This afternoon, for instance, even though the temperatures are only expected to be in the low to mid 80’s, when you factor in the humidity, it will feel like the low 90’s.
As the heat and humidity increase this afternoon, we have a chance of a spotty storm here and there today, but it looks like we have a better shot of seeing storms tomorrow.
According to the National Weather Service, we are not only under a Flash Flood watch from Monday afternoon through Monday evening, we are also in an enhanced risk area for severe storms during this same time. This front is currently moving through Ohio and Pennsylvania, but is expected to reach our area tomorrow.
The main threat with these storms tomorrow will be damaging wind gusts mixed with the possibility of large hail. As we’ve seen in the past, these storms could develop quickly and become severe in a short period of time. We will keep an eye on this for you throughout the day tomorrow and bring you the latest weather information.
As always, should you be in the path of a severe storm, please move inside and if you do receive hail or damaging winds, please wait until conditions are safe before you report these to the National Weather Service.
