NEW YORK (WABC) -- Temps will be above average Friday, followed by humidity and thunder threats later in the weekend into early next week.
The lack of rain continues to worsen the drought conditions with the area of moderate to severe drought expanding.
In Connecticut, Governor Ned Lamont announced a Stage 3 drought level for New London and Windham counties due to more serious conditions emerging in those areas. It's stage 2 across the rest of the state.
Lamont is urging residents to voluntarily reduce water usage to only those things that are absolutely necessary and limit the amount of water being used.
In New York, Rockland County officials declared a Stage 2 water emergency beginning Thursday, implementing mandatory restrictions on water use.
