Local weather forecast
Today’s forecast is specific to Catskill, in Greene County:
The National Weather Service in Albany's Storm Prediction Center has placed all of eastern New York and western New England at a slight risk for severe thunderstorms through the evening of Wed., July 23, as a cold front moves across the region. Some of these storms will become severe. The main threat will be from damaging wind gusts and cloud-to-ground lightning strikes. Any storm will be capable of producing very heavy downpours so there is the threat of minor flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas. Thunderstorms will diminish in coverage and intensity Wednesday evening as the cold front slides south of the region.
Today: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 4 p.m. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. Patchy fog before 8 a.m. Otherwise, mostly sunny. High near 88. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. Tuesday night, showers and thunderstorms likely before midnight, then a chance of showers. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. Cloudy. Low around 64. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent.
Forecast for the next three days:
Thursday: A slight chance of showers before noon. Mostly cloudy. High near 77. Thursday night, partly cloudy. Low around 55.
Friday: Sunny. High near 83. Friday night, mostly clear. Low around 57.
