In what has become a very active July weather-wise, expect another round of “thunder boomers” Monday afternoon.
An approaching cold front will spark scattered showers and thunderstorms around midday (approximately 11 AM to 1 PM) across northern New York. Those storms will then strengthen as they move into Vermont and New Hampshire, throughout the afternoon and into the early evening. By dinnertime (6-8PM) those storms will have cruised out of the area and off the east, with just a handful of lingering showers or weaker storms lasting through midnight.
Some storms Monday afternoon may be strong to severe, producing hefty, potentially damaging wind gusts, frequent lightning and hail up to around 1″ in diameter. Also possible, heavy rainfall and very localized flash flooding, though the soil is still very dry. With the wind threat, we could see downed tree limbs and power lines.
After midnight, temperatures will dip into the low 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Tuesday and Wednesday – here’s a treat – we get to enjoy some cooler, less muggy and more comfortable weather. High pressure settles in, with dry weather and sunshine going hand-in-hand with highs in the 70s.
Have a great day!
