Regional Radar Loop: 12:50pm – 2:20pm
Temperatures across the Hudson Valley are in the upper 70s to low 80s, and dew points are in the upper 60s in general. That’s providing a lot of fuel for these storms to blossom, and we’re seeing that on the latest radar. Look at how over the last hour and a half, the storms have increased in number and intensity.
These storms could contain heavy downpours, lightning and gusty winds as they move from west to east. There is a slight chance of one or two storms becoming severe… but it’s roughly 5% or less that a severe storm occurs within 30 miles of your location. But we can’t completely rule out a damaging wind gust within one of these storms.

But despite the weather… we hope you have a wonderful afternoon!
