Monday : Sunshine mixed with afternoon clouds, comfortable. High in the mid to upper 70s.
Monday Night : A few clouds and cool. Low in the upper 40s to low 50s.
Tuesday : Mix of clouds and sun… cool. High in the low to mid 70s.
What a difference a day makes! Poughkeepsie saw a high temperature of 79° on Sunday, and with much lower humidity… it felt like an entirely different season across the Hudson Valley. Outdoor plans saw nearly ideal conditions… so hopefully your Sunday turned out great!
Looking forward to Monday, we’re going to see a good deal of sun to start the day… and we may see a few clouds filter in from the south during the afternoon. It’s a dry day, with low humidity, so it’s looking quite good! Monday night could be a chilly one… depending on how much clearing and how calm the winds get, temps could get into the upper 40s for many locations, (higher elevations could really get cool, with some upper 30s to low 40s possible in the coldest spots). Then on Tuesday, a few more clouds could roll in associated with an area of disturbance off the Virginia coast. That could hold temps down as well, so Tuesday has the potential to feel very much like autumn.
The winds may shift around again by Wednesday and Thursday, which could warm the Hudson Valley back up into the 80s. But a cold front could touch off some showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening. Once the cold front pushes through, temps look poised to drop again… and some very fall like conditions are possible. There is some uncertainty on how fast the front pushes to our east… so unsettled conditions could linger into Saturday, but we’ll be watching closely. If you have plans for the coming weekend, just check back here as we go thru the week for new information
Alex and I are putting the final touches on data from the past summer, so while we had hoped to have that up for Sunday… we’ll probably release that information during the week. We also know that many of you are clamoring for a winter outlook. We haven’t forgotten about you, there’s just a lot to look at, and putting it together is going to take some time… but we’re working on it.
On that note… time for me to get some early sleep tonight. I’ve got to take the weather munchkin into school on my way to work. Not a major deal… except it’s 20 miles in the opposite direction from my day job… which means I need to get up extra early on Monday. So a busy start to my work week for sure. Thank you so much for all the support you guys (and gals) have shown HVW. Alex and I get so much inspiration from your support… and it means so much to us! Have a great Monday!!
