Extreme heat and humidity in the Hudson Valley will usher in rounds of torrential thunderstorms with heavy rain and gusty winds Thursday night through this weekend, according to AccuWeather.com.
"A weather setup such as this has produced storms with flooding in the past," according to AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams.

Some thunderstorms could produce gusty winds in excess of 50 miles per hour and hail as well as downpours that could result in ponding of water or poor drainage flooding.
Friday will be another hot day with sunny skies and a high in the upper 80s.
The storm chance returns Saturday afternoon after 2 p.m. during a partly sunny day with a high in the low 80s. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain.
