Governor warns of severe weather today

ALBANY A warning was released by Governor Kathy Hochul on Thursday regarding possibly harmful storms that are predicted to hit the Hudson Valley today, Friday. It is anticipated that the area would experience intense temperatures for several days after the storms.

A cold front is predicted to bring thunderstorms to portions of the Southern Tier, Mohawk Valley, Capital Region, and Mid-Hudson Valley, some with heavy downpours and potentially destructive wind gusts. Storm-related effects could include power outages, hazardous travel conditions, and flash flooding. In addition, Governor Hochul advised everyone in New York to brace themselves for a few days of intense heat that would begin on Monday and last the entire week. The State is expected to have a spike in heat and humidity starting on Monday, with Tuesday and Wednesday feeling like temperatures beyond 100.

Governor Hochul stated that due to the mix of severe storms, heat, and humidity, New Yorkers who are already sensitive to health risks should take every effort to be safe and cool throughout the coming week. My administration will be closely observing the effects of the weather, and we urge residents of New York to keep hydrated, keep an eye on the weather forecast, and prepare a plan in case you need to cool off during this period.
