The heat will be on in Dutchess and there could be a round of severe storms as it warms up on Friday.

According to the National Weather Service, an area of high pressure that is building across the area will bring hotter and increasingly more humid air to the region.

A weak cold front approaches the area Friday, bringing with it, clouds andĀ scattered showers and severe thunderstorms, but not a break from the heat.

Large hail, frequent lightning and damaging wind gusts are expected to be the main threats Friday into Friday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Here's what to expect:

  • Thursday night : Mostly clear, with a low around 65.
  • Friday: A chance of showers and severe thunderstorms, mainly after 1 p.m. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny, with a high near 92. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
