Thunderstorms in the Forecast Monday Afternoon
The storms aren't through with us quite yet. We are looking at the possibility of more thunderstorms and rain coming through the Hudson Valley later Monday afternoon and evening due to a cold front that is doing it's best to push out the warm temperatures we enjoyed over the weekend. Today and tonight the National Weather Service has posted a Hazardous Weather Outlook.
The storms that are likely for this afternoon and this evening could be severe. There is a possibility that we could contain damaging winds and hail with the approaching weather. The counties affected in the Hudson Valley are Greene, Columbia, Ulster and Dutchess.
