Double Heatwave For The Hudson Valley


(Poughkeepsie, NY)--It looks like we could have a double heatwave this week.

According to the National Weather Service, the Poughkeepsie reporting station located at the Hudson Valley Regional Airport recorded a temperature of 90 degrees on Sunday at 2:19pm and also on Monday at 4:42pm. The predictions are that today will hit ninety degrees and if that happens we will have our first heatwave.Then we could start a second heatwave on Friday.

According to Hudsonvalleyweather.com, “The saving grace may come in the form of the remnants from Tropical Storm Barry.While very disorganized, the moisture from Barry may push NE into the Ohio Valley and Northeast.Because the system is so disorganized, the timing and placement of the moisture remains uncertain, but the threat looks to be Wednesday into Thursday.Neither day looks like a washout… but clouds and showers could help keep temperatures down a bit, making for less oppressive heat index values.”
