The National Weather Service warns that there's a risk of severe thunderstorms and even tornadoes in the Hudson Valley today.
According to weather.com, "As the cold front marches toward the Eastern seaboard, a band of rain and thunderstorms along the front is expected to intensify Monday afternoon as strong low-level winds overspread the region and the storms move into an environment with high dewpoints (atmospheric moisture). This combination will be favorable for damaging wind gusts to develop with some of these storms. An embedded spin-up tornado cannot be ruled out in this situation."
To be prepared, the Red Cross of Metropolitan New York offers these resources.
