Severe Weather is Moving Through the Hudson Valley
After feeling like the tropics this weekend, the Hudson Valley is about to get a break from the humidity, but it won't be an easy one. We've been watching the radar since yesterday and the approaching front is firing off storms throughout the Hudson Valley.
As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm warning for Ulster and Dutchess County in effect until 4:15 this afternoon. The concern with this system is that parts of the county could see wind gusts as high as 60 mile per hour and quarter sized hail, which could lead to down limbs and power lines as well as damage to vehicles.
If you find yourself in the path of this storm, please seek shelter inside, preferably in a room on the lowest floor. If you see severe weather developing in your area, please take cover and be safe before you report your conditions to the National Weather Service.
