SEVERE WX : Winter Weather Advisory View Alerts

Stormy weather ahead...

The weather turns increasingly warmer and more humid over the next few days, with scattered thunderstorms.

Posted: Aug 15, 2019 10:38 PM

The dog days of summer are expected to return this weekend. A surge of warmth and high humidity arrives Thursday night and stays with us through the weekend and early next week. High temperatures look to climb to near 80 on Friday and Saturday, then into the mid 80s on Sunday and Monday. The heat index will likely approach 90 by early next week. Remember, the heat index is what it feels like with high humidity.

The storm threat sticks with us through the weekend. A tremendous lightning show took place south of the Mohawk Valley Thursday evening, along with a flash flood warning for parts of Otsego County. The storm threat continues on Friday. In fact, a few storms Friday afternoon could produce gusty winds. The winds in the lower levels do favor for a few localized stronger storms, especially in the Mohawk Valley. Research is being done on specific scenarios that look at wind patterns and rotating storms in Oneida County. Friday will be an interesting day for that.

Scattered showers and storms continue on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning will once again be in the cards.  Stay tuned to WKTV for the latest developments.
