We're about to go from one extreme to the other. Like we reported yesterday, our area is currently under a heat warning with indices reaching around 102 degrees. Like your favorite product you've seen on TV, wait, there's more. The remnants of hurricane Beryl are headed our way.

Tomorrow, the remnants of Hurricane Beryl will impact New York, bringing significant weather disturbances to the region. Originally forming in the Atlantic as a tropical storm, Beryl intensified into a hurricane before eventually weakening and transforming into a post-tropical cyclone as it moved towards the northeastern United States. Despite losing its tropical status, Beryl's remnants will carry considerable moisture and energy, and will result in weather events for New York.
