Central New York Could See Strong Thunderstorms Friday
The National Weather Service out of Binghamton has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Central New York for the end of the week. Could we see some strong storms and cooler temps as we enter August?
NOAA is reporting that a strong cold front will move into Upstate New York and Pennsylvania Friday night and slice into a very warm and humid air mass. This will
set the area up for a round of thunderstorms late Friday afternoon, into Friday night. These storms could produce heavy rain (because that's exactly what we need more of), strong winds and large hail.
The Weather Channel is also noting that here in Central New York, and the Eastern half of the country, the beginning of August won't feel like August. After the storms pass through Friday, we will be looking at cooler-than-average temperatures.
By Saturday, cooler-than-average conditions will stretch from the Plains into much of the South and East. However, portions of New England and Florida will likely see temperatures near average."
What this means, CNY could see either cooler temps or average temps. Only time will truly tell.
