Here’s Your Latest Storm Tracker Forecast from NEWS10 Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo & Nick Johnston
Get ready for a potentially hazardous Monday. A Warm front lifts to our North this morning – allowing a BIG surge in the dew points/humidity. Temperatures today will be in the upper 80s to near 90, but with dew points rising into the 70s, the heat index or ‘feels like’ temperature will be in the mid to upper 90s… and near 100° for portions of southern NY, resulting in a heat advisory. We are not alone… Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings extend down much of the East Coast today.
Then, during the mid to later afternoon, a cold front approaches from the West, with strong to severe thunderstorms and VERY heavy rain possible. The most likely timing will be between 12-8pm moving from West to East – arriving first in parts of the Adirondacks, and clearing into New England by evening. Damaging wind gusts are the biggest concern, but torrential rain could lead to localized flash flooding. Here is a look at the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center;
The cold front works through Monday night….and slightly drier air, but still warm temps will be here on Tuesday. Temperatures will be in the mid 80s Tuesday – but back to near 90 for Wednesday & Thursday!
Have a Good Day!
