05/25/2021: Hot & Humid Wednesday, Strong Afternoon Storms


The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo and Rob Lindenmuth:

Warm and muggy air make a return to the capital region overnight as a warm front will be moving in from the southwest. Temperatures tonight remaining in the low to mid 60’s with increasing levels of humidity.

Partly sunny skies with temperatures surging into the mid 80’s on Wednesday with dew point temperatures climbing into the low to mid 60’s will help to add fuel to the storm potential through the afternoon, but we will start out partly sunny and muggy.

As a cold front moves closer to the region during the afternoon thunderstorms will likely begin to develop. Plenty of fuel for the storms to feed off of in the afternoon, especially in the Hudson Valley.

We think there will be 2 distinct rounds of severe weather, one ahead of the main line by early/ mid afternoon and a second by late afternoon and early evening.

Storm Prediction Center will be closely monitoring things through Wednesday, currently they have the region in a slight risk (2/5) for severe storms with a 5% risk for tornadoes.

Behind the cold front cooler and drier air for Thursday before another disturbance moves in for Friday with cool and rainy weather, but right now the Holiday Weekend not looking too bad!
