Strong storms Monday ⛈️
👋 Hi there! The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Hudson Valley in an “enhanced risk” category for thunderstorms on Monday afternoon, citing a risk for strong winds, hail, and even an isolated tornado.
It looks to be our first significant severe weather threat of the season, with the mid-to-late afternoon hours having the highest chance for activity.
After snow day predictions, severe weather updates are my most popular, so I will be providing them as needed on Twitter. Stay weather-aware out there!
Fortunately, the stormy weather won’t last — a cold front will swing through the region on Monday night, blowing the heat and humidity away.
Tuesday will be be a much more comfortable day with a breeze picking up.
Wednesday will be the pick weather day of the week 🌞
Daytime temperatures will continue to run in the 70s on Thursday and Friday with just a chance for some passing showers.
The humidity will start to become more noticeable on Friday before peaking on Saturday ahead of a cold front. Right now, Saturday looks like the hottest day of the year so far with a weather setup conducive to a run at 90 degrees 🌡️
Following a cold front late Saturday, temperatures on Sunday look to turn modestly cooler.
Further down the line, there’s a sign that more heat could build during the second half of the week of the 23rd.
The polar opposite of my winter outlooks, which are usually the length of a novella, in this tweet I deliver a summer outlook in 280 characters.
🥜 In a nutshell, there’s a sign that it will be similar to recent summers — featuring warmer than average temperatures and high levels of humidity, lasting into fall. That means your AC and window fans will be getting a workout!
It could start off a little drier than normal in June before trending wetter in July-August, possibly turning drier again in fall. The wet weather could again be influenced by tropical storms, as we have experienced in each of the last two summers.

Beach trip 🏖️
Has the warmer weather got you thinking of a beach trip? While ocean temperatures have yet to heat up along the Jersey Shore, we’re still experiencing a marine heatwave in New Zealand. Even though May is the month before winter in the Southern Hemisphere, sea temperatures are just shy of 70 degrees in northern New Zealand - perfect for one last dip before the cold season arrives.
I shared some drone photos last week - this week, shots from the ground 📸
🤙 Ride a wave of good vibes this week!
