Potential Hazardous Weather Expected This Weekend Across New York
It looks like the nice weather is coming to an end and we could be looking at some really nasty weather coming up this weekend.
After several days of above-average temperatures across the state, a major weather front is set to move across the state and bring a risk of potential hazardous rainfall.
The rain is expected to start late Friday night and continue into early next week.

With potential rain along with thunder and lighting, there are some things you should and should not be doing when lighting is in the area.
The good news is that the rain is much needed as much of the state was recently under drought conditions. As of this writing, the state is under normal drought conditions but could move into a watch if the water levels drop.
A "watch" is the first of four levels of state drought advisories. After a "watch" comes a "warning", followed by an "emergency" and finally a "disaster" level.
As of right now, there are no statewide mandatory water use restrictions in place but residents are strongly encouraged to voluntarily conserve water. Local public water suppliers may require conservation measures, depending on local needs and conditions.
