We have a weak disturbance pushing toward the Hudson Valley for tonight and Saturday. But we should be able to squeak out a nice day on Friday.
Sunshine is filtered through high fair weather clouds to start the day on Friday. Temperatures across the region are starting off in the mid to upper 60s, and will push to near or just above 80° for highs this afternoon. Dew points are at comfortable levels (around 60°)… so it shouldn’t be a sticky afternoon, despite the seasonable warmth. But clouds will increase as the day progresses, with scattered showers developing in the Catskills by late afternoon. A few of those showers could push into the valley by sunset, so watch for a few spot showers late in the day.
Near sunset (between 6pm and 9pm), we should see showers push into the region. That will translate into a soggy night across the area. Expect widespread showers, even a spotty thundershower, to last through most of the night.
By Saturday, we should begin to see breaks of sunshine mixing with clouds, with the threat for scattered showers tapering early in the morning. However… another period of scattered showers and thunderstorms seem likely for mid to late afternoon on Saturday. So it’s probably best to expect the threat of a shower or storm if you have plans on Saturday.
Have a great Friday!
