After some unsettled weather the past 24 hours, we’ve seen a cold front push through the region, and that has changed things up a bit…
We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies through the day, as a colder, drier air mass continues to surge into the Hudson Valley. West/northwest winds are blowing at around 10mph, but gusts over 25mph are possible. That wind will add a bit of a chill to the air. So afternoon highs that will climb into the mid 40s across the valley areas… will feel more like the mid 30s with the wind chill. So be sure to bundle up accordingly, as fall will be in full effect.
Clear skies and diminishing winds tonight will lead to cold and frosty conditions. Lows overnight across the valley likely fall into the mid and upper 20s. We’ll see some clouds increase toward sunrise… but not before the cold air really entrenches in the area.
Clouds will continue to thicken on Saturday morning, and by the afternoon hours on Saturday, we should see some scattered showers spread into the region… in association with an approaching warm front. Scattered showers will be possible thru sunset on Saturday… with temps remaining chilly, in the low to mid 40s.
After sunset on Saturday, the winds will really pick up out of the south… and warm air will flood into the Hudson Valley. Wind gusts over 35mph are possible, and we will likely see “Wind Advisories” posted for the region. As a result of the strong southerly winds… early evening temps in the low 40s, will rise overnight to around 50°. Sunday will start warm and windy… with temps in the low to mid 50s. But the afternoon on Sunday will see powerful NW winds usher in much colder air again.
We’ve got a roller coaster ride ahead of us this weekend. Be sure to buckle up! TGIF, and have a great Friday!
