Hazardous Weather Conditions still exist during National Lightening Awareness Week! Do you know what to do when lightening strikes and you are no where to be protected? According to the National Weather Service, Long Island Sound West of New Haven CT/Port Jefferson NY and the adjacent areas of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, all are experiencing coastal waters issues. This means that coastal - isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible now into this evening and potential damaging wind gusts will occur. Are You Weather-Ready People? I Am Back. El Nino and La Nina did not hold me down long, some scratches, contusions, and scraps, but I can still report the weather!
Starting Tomorrow - Saturday through Thursday expect showers and thunderstorms in the regions which are associated with cold fronts. The threat of flash flooding and patches of low pressure will or could exist in the Mid-Atlantic to Southern New England areas.
Please Be Advised and Drive Safely if not at all!
Lightening Safety means hotter than normal surfaces of the Sun can reach temperatures around 50,000 F. In the New York area already, two deaths have been reported for the lack of educating our Youth! As you prepare for your Tri-State barbecues for the 4th of July Holiday, sporting events, boating, hitting the beaches, or any other recreational activity outdoors, remember that Lightening Strikes from Cloud-to-Ground and you must structure your plumbing and electrical wiring. Stay indoors if you hear the THUNDER ROAR, or find a sturdy, enclosed STRUCTURE.
