Strong Storms, Tornado Threat for the Capital Region Wednesday


The National Weather Service has issued a number of advisories and alerts

The remnants of Hurricane Beryl will be pushing through New York State on Wednesday. It is expected to hit the Capital Region during the afternoon hours, carrying into the evening. Strong winds, heavy rain, potential flooding and the possibility of a tornado are all factors that should be expected as severe weather will likely impact most of the area. 

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Advisory for the Capital Region, while much of the area continues to remain under a Heat Advisory. A Flood Watch is in effect for Fulton, Montgomery, Warren and parts of Washington County. 

The expected high for Wednesday is 90, with a heat index (real feel) close to 100 degrees. The heaviest rain, up to 3 inches is possible in the Glens Falls-Lake George area. 

Thunderstorms and damaging winds are expected throughout the area and the potential for a tornado can't be ruled out.
