When Will Tropical Storm Isaias Hit the Hudson Valley?
We're keeping our eye on the storm.
Tropical Storm Isaias is making landfall up the east coast, which means the Hudson Valley can expect to feel some of the effects.
We'll be keeping an eye on our local weather sources for updates. Meteorologist Ben Noll is reporting that the Hudson Valley will start seeing remnants of the Tropical Storm around 2 pm on Tuesday, August 4th. Noll said in a Facebook post " if you can, be off the roads by 2 pm."
Noll suggests that if you have any loose items outdoors to bring them in as Tropical Storm Isaias could possibly bring wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour.
