The Original Hudson Valley Weather!
To provide the most accurate and down-to-Earth weather forecasts for the Hudson Valley and Catskills of New York.
The original Hudson Valley Weather was founded in January of 2011, as a Facebook page by founder Alex Marra. Originally designed to provide weather information for friends and family, Hudson Valley Weather quickly exploded into a weather resource used by thousands of people across the Hudson Valley. Local residents turned to Hudson Valley weather during Hurricanes Irene and Sandy, as well as during the Oct-Snow-ber storm of 2011… for vital, possibly life saving weather information. Our dedication and passion over the years, has earned the trust and respect of residents from all over the region. Hudson Valley Weather has become the sole source of weather information 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 iHeartMedia of the Hudson Valley, 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. In 2016 released our Hudson Valley Weather smart phone app, both on the iOS and Android platforms. Today, our Facebook page, now with more than 116,000 likes… and growing every day… serves as the primary weather resource for thousands of people across the Hudson Valley.
Alex Marra : President / Senior Forecaster
President and founder of Hudson Valley Weather. Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, Alex grew up dealing 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 his friends and family informed on local weather. Alex created Hudson Valley Weather in January of 2011. What began as a small Facebook page, quickly expanded into a regional resource used by thousands of residents.
His passion for the outdoors has given him specialized knowledge of all the local micro-climates in the region, that help him provide expert detailed forecasts for the entire region.
Bill Potter: Senior Forecaster
Bill is a life long resident of the Hudson Valley, with a passion for forecasting the weather that extends all the way back to childhood. In 2008, after constantly fielding weather questions from friends and family, he created the website Mid Hudson Weather. What began as a place for friends and family to get information, gradually expanded into a valuable local resource, used by thousands of local residents.
In July of 2014, Bill joined Hudson Valley Weather. Working side by side, Bill and Alex have made it their continuing mission, to bring the most accurate weather forecast possible to the residents of the Hudson Valley.
