Our History

The original Hudson Valley Weather was founded in January of 2011 and is still growing everyday! HVW was founded by a person who has always loved the weather since a kid and grew up locally and dealt with the frustration of only getting forecasts for Albany and NYC. This frustration and deep passion for the weather led to the creation of a local Facebook page to keep everyone in the beautiful Hudson Valley informed on local weather. Our Facebook page, now with more than 52,000 likes, has become the sole source of weather for many fans and has become a community of followers whose interaction and information make Hudson Valley Weather next to none for local weather.

In December 2013, just before our third birthday, HVW launched a brand new website at www.HudsonValleyWeather.com and announced our partnership with Clear Channel Communications to serve as sole provider of weather forecasting for ten local radio stations. Additionally, we provide a source for nonstop National Weather Service warnings and alerts for the ten counties we serve.

Our Facebook page, Twitter feed and website is updated continually by a group of local amateur forecasters with many years of forecasting knowledge on local micro climates, providing 24 hour service at times of severe weather.

Hudson Valley Weather is also a community for weather enthusiasts to talk and share observations about local weather and climate, and a place to learn more about the science of meteorology and forecasting. Our team of avid weather fanatics report available storm information from over 50k local fans, including damage reports, road conditions, school and business closings and weather observations. Cutting edge science with a down to earth feel makes HVW the first choice for weather for thousands across our area.
