Monday Discussion: Warm Afternoon T-Storm Potential

A summer-like start to the work week around the Hudson Valley.  Sunshine and blue skies are mixing with fair weather clouds.  Giving us a great start to the day

Temperatures are soaring into the upper 70s and low 80s as of mid day, as you can see on the first image.

The radar is rather quiet right now, we have some extra clouds and scattered light rain showers in the Catskills, but it’s quiet across the majority of the region.

But there is some concern for pop up thunderstorms this afternoon, due to our summer like air mass in place.  You can see the graphic from the Storm Prediction Center putting the northern HV in a “slight risk” for severe weather (Hudson Valley is circled).  A few strong and possibly severe storms could pop up randomly around the region… mainly after 2pm.  Guidance suggests these storms will be isolated, and spotty in nature, but could contain damaging wind gusts and torrential downpours where they do occur

We’ll keep an eye on the radar and potential warnings as they arise.
