Welcome to summer… again. An incredibly warm weekend for the first weekend of Fall, and the final weekend of September. Poughkeepsie high temperatures on Saturday reached 85°… and on Sunday 86°. That is roughly 15° warmer than the average high temperature of 71°. Anyone with outdoor plans had to love the weather, as you couldn’t dream up a better weather weekend. There is good and bad to everything… and our gorgeous weather is no exception. The average rainfall for the month of September is 4.28″… and after 28 days, we’ve only had 0.52″ in Poughkeepsie, which is only 13% of the monthly average. We could definitely use the rain… and hopefully the month of October will bring some change.
But we’ve got 2 days of September left… so lets take a look at those quickly. Monday looks fairly nice… sunshine mixing with more and more clouds as the day wears on. Afternoon highs should top out in the upper 70s, another warm day compared to average. Tuesday doesn’t look quite as good…
A weakening low pressure will move down from Canada, and into the Ohio Valley. At the same time, a weak disturbance sets up out in the Atlantic Ocean. The result will be a lot of clouds, and some instability… possibly leading to a few scattered showers across the Hudson Valley. Any rain should be very light, but it’s more the cloudiness that will be the weather story on Tuesday. This pattern likely carries over into Wednesday, but we’ll keep tabs on this one day at a time.
A very busy weekend for me personally. Saturday night, I went down to NYC for the Mets game with my father. Yes… I’m a long suffering Mets fan, and finally decided to bite the bullet and go to a game. It was a great time with my Dad… and they even found a way to win in the bottom of the 9th. Sunday was spent with the family, and enjoying the beautiful weather. Time flies though… and another weekend is in the books, and another work week awaits. I best get some sleep, and prepare for another busy week. Hope you guys all had a great weekend… and that your week gets started on the right foot. See you Monday night…
