After back to back 90° days across the Hudson Valley… and scattered evening thunderstorms Thursday night… Friday will see our pattern begin to shift.
Our flow will gradually shift from southwest to northwest during the day on Friday. We should start the day with a good deal of sunshine, but clouds will become much more numerous as the morning progresses. A few spotty rain showers, or even a thundershower or two, are possible during the day on Friday. The showers should be relatively few in number, but it’s something to be aware of.
Daytime temperatures will also be much cooler on Friday. Our northwest flow will gradually dry out the air mass on Friday, and the heat and humidity will be replaced with cooler, Canadian air. With Friday being a day of transition, we’ll see a wide variety of high temperatures across the Hudson Valley. South of I-84, we could see highs crack into the low 80s… but the further north you go, highs may have to fight to reach the mid 70s.
A much cooler night ahead for Friday night, with overnight lows in the upper 40s and low 50s possible. That sets up a much cooler weekend, with lots of sunshine on Saturday, and highs a degree or two on either side of 70°. Temperatures look a degree or two cooler on Sunday, with a good deal of increasing cloudiness expected. The complete details can be found on the HVW 5 DAY FORECAST.
It’s been a busy weather week across the Hudson Valley… and we’ve got more changes on the way. We hope you have a great Friday!
