Local weather forecast
Today's forecast is specific to Catskill, in Greene County:

The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Flash Flood Watch for portions of northwestern Connecticut, western Massachusetts, east central New York and southern Vermont. The Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Tuesday evening. Slow moving showers and thunderstorms producing very heavy rain will continue across the region into Tuesday afternoon. Rainfall rates of one to two inches per hour will be possible within thunderstorms. Showers and thunderstorms will move slowly and may also train repeatedly across some areas, possibly producing isolated amounts in excess of five inches. This heavy rainfall will likely lead to some flash flooding, particularly in areas of poor drainage and in urban areas. In case of flooding, act quickly. Move to higher ground at once. Get away from places subject to rapid flooding, such as dry creek beds or places along streams. Avoid already flooded areas.

Today: Occasional showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Cloudy. High near 79. Tuesday night, scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 11pm. Mostly cloudy. Low around 64.

Forecast for the next three days:

Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms before 11 a.m., then isolated showers between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Mostly sunny. High near 81. Wednesday night, mostly clear. Low around 53.
