Friday: Increasing clouds with scattered flurries and a snow squall possible. Becoming windy and much colder. High temps in the mid 30s… then falling thru the 20s. Northwest wind increasing to 10 to 15mph. Wind chills in the single digits.
Friday Night: Mostly clear and cold, with diminishing wind. Low 5° to 10°… wind chills near 0°
Saturday: Sunshine mixing with afternoon clouds, and very cold. High only in the mid 20s.
Just when everyone’s expecting a thaw… a sneaky cold front creeps up and ruins everyone’s plans. The front moves thru around mid day, and could touch off a few snow showers and flurries. The wind begins to howl… and temps should fall by late in the afternoon, all the way thru the 20s. Don’t let the morning lull you into a false sense of security… the afternoon won’t be overly pleasant.
Saturday is another cold one… as temps don’t get out of the 20s. That leads us into Sunday…
Right now, Sunday looks cloudy and mostly quiet. The exact track and development of a coastal storm system on Sunday afternoon… will go a long way toward determining our weather. It’s an extremely close call, the GFS model has us barely missing the rain Sunday night… while the European model has us getting a soaking rain late Sunday afternoon. We’re going to track it closely with you… and give you updates on the potential each day.
We’ve got complete details on the HVW 5 Day Forecast.
TGIF! In a winter that has snow lovers wondering… “who turned out the lights?”… the cold air just refuses to leave the party. Each time the cold tries to retreat… reinforcements swing through the Hudson Valley. We’ll get a 1 day “thaw”… that really just sets the stage for a storm system on Sunday night… otherwise, it’s back into the ice box.
We’ve got complete details on how the month of January could end even colder than it’s been so far, so please check out the “Billy’s Banter” section of Thursday’s Outlook for that information.
So that leaves the Winter Warriors demanding to know, “Will it ever snow?” In short… yes, it will. But exactly when… well, that’s a bit more difficult. Our best chance at the moment, is a low pressure that will move to the east coast by Wednesday next week. It could spread a swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow across the HV as the storm tries to get to the east coast and intensify. We’ll watch it on Friday, to see if the potential for the event increases… or decreases.
Thanks for all your support… but it’s bedtime for me. Have a great Friday, and we’ll take another look in the Saturday Outlook.
