Wild weather making a mess of roads

Posted: Updated:
DOBBS FERRY -

Some spring-like wild and mild conditions are making it difficult to get around the Hudson Valley today.

News 12 meteorologists say temperatures are expected to be in the high-50s, with periods of heavy rain and gusty winds. They say a few strong thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.

With heavy rain expected for most of the day, watch for large puddles and ponding of water on area roadways. With the addition to strong gusty winds, scattered power outages are certainly possible.

The National Weather Service says a flash flood watch has been issued for today until 6 p.m. and a wind advisory is in effect from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Also, a coastal flood advisory has been issued from noon to 3 p.m. and minor coastal flooding is possible along the Sound Shore during the early afternoon high tide cycle.

As the rain departs this afternoon, the thermometer will drop significantly and temperatures will feel like it is in the teens. Any large puddles, or standing water of any kind that do not dry out, will freeze leading to patchy black ice.
