A round of scattered severe thunderstorms with damaging winds that could cause power outages is sweeping through the area.

At 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 29, radar indicated strong storms were located north of New York City, along a line extending from six miles northeast of Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County to Yorktown Heights in Northern Westchester. (See first image above.)

Expect multiple lines/rounds of storms, the National Weather Service said, noting that heavy downpours could cause flooding, especially in low-lying areas with poor drainage. 

The strong wind gusts could bring down trees and utility poles, causing power outages.

Cloud to ground lightning strikes will also accompany the storms.

Areas farther north and especially west are most at risk for the most severe storms. 

A look at areas where a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect is shown in the second image above.

Thunderstorm activity will wrap up by around 2 a.m. Saturday, May 30. That will be followed by showers that will taper off by noontime, with some breaks of sun in the afternoon.

The high temperature will be in the upper 70s. 

Temperatures will fall to between 5 and 15 degrees below normal at the start of next week after the cold front moves through the region.

Sunday, May 31 will be sunny with the high temperature in the upper 60s.

The overnight low will fall to around 50 degrees.

As the calendar flips to a new month, Monday, June 1 will be even cooler, with the high temperature in the low to mid 60s.

The low temperature overnight will be in the upper 40s.
