Morning News Update
Good morning. I’m James Brierton. It’s Thursday, July 26. Here’s the latest from the SmithtownRadio.com newsroom
The weather is always unpredictable but there is a chance we could see one of the stormy days of the year today. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center has placed much of New York – including the greater-Smithtown area – in a moderate risk for seeing severe weather. Such a classification is seen only a few times a year in our part of the country.
A warm front pushes through this morning and will help push us to our high of 88 today. Look for showers and clouds through your evening commute. Our best shot of seeing severe thunderstorms comes after 9 o’clock as the cold front pushes eastward.
Ahead of the storms, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the State Emergency Operations Center will open at 1 o’clock.
While we’re likely to see severe storms tonight, the region’s strongest storms and tornado threat stays to our north. We’re most certainly be dealing with power outages tonight so make sure to stock up on batteries and other storm supplies.
