As thunderstorms are expected across the state this weekend, especially today and Sunday, July 9, with the potential to impact flood-prone areas, New Yorkers are advised to keep an eye on their local forecast for the latest weather conditions and sign up for Emergency Notification Alerts.

“From unhealthy air quality to extreme heat, mother nature has really tested New Yorkers over the past few weeks, and it looks like that trend will continue this weekend,” Hocher said. Thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected, which could lead to flash flooding, especially in the Northland, Mohawk Valley and parts of the Capital Region.

“Our teams are closely monitoring weather patterns and stand ready to assist any of our local partners, and I urge all New Yorkers to monitor local weather forecasts, heed warnings and plan accordingly.”

State agencies and authorities are in constant communication with government partners across the state and stand ready to respond to any requests for assistance, Hocher said.
