Severe Thunderstorm Watch Hudson Valley Northeast PA, Parts of Northern New Jersey

We thought this evening would be uneventful for the most part with just a few scattered thunderstorms but the line of thunderstorms in upstate NY has held up rather well and that has prompted a Severe Thunderstorm Watch to be posted for Northeast Pennsylvania, the Catskills, The Hudson Valley, Northern and Northwest New Jersey.

We can see that the southern end of this line of thunderstorms moving rapidly eastward. The main threat from these storms will be strong gusty winds of 60 mph or more and hail. These storms are the result of an approaching cold front and once again the daytime heating was stronger today with sunshine and dew points that hung stubbornly close to 70. The threat time will be from now until midnight.

There are no other changes in the outlook going forward through the weekend. Once these storms end skies will clear out tonight and humidity levels will drop quickly on Friday. Dry nice weather is with us for the weekend and this will likely be the best weekend weatherwise of the summer so far. More cold fronts and more changes coming next week.
