There is no escaping the heat, Hudson Valley. The humidity will be thick today, and temperatures will climb back near 90°. The result will be very uncomfortable conditions, as well as stagnant air that will create respiratory distress…
The Heat Advisory remains in effect for the entire afternoon across the region. That’s due to anticipated heat index values between 95° and 100°. Make sure you use reasonable caution during outdoor activities today. Take breaks, stay hydrated… and make sure you check on those who may need assistance.
As the afternoon progresses, our eyes will turn to the radar, as we could see a couple T-Storms pop up during the afternoon… especially in the Catskills and northern HV.
Futurecast Radar : 8am Tue to 2am Wed
You’ll notice that the majority of the shower and thunderstorm activity is focused north of I-84, and especially up into the Catskills and northern HV. Any time after 2 or 3pm, these storms could develop and push from west to east across the northern half of the Hudson Valley. A severe storm can’t be ruled out (with potentially damaging wind gusts), but most of these storms will see the main concern be heavy downpours, gusty winds and lightning.
We’ll try to share radar images on social media as things unfold later today. But the heat and humidity will be with us through the next couple days… before hopefully easing up as we approach the weekend.
Have a nice afternoon!
