After a very stormy night across the Hudson Valley, we’ll wake up to scattered rain showers on Monday, with the storm system pulling northward into Canada.
In less than 24 hours, this system went from a disturbance in North Carolina, to a bomb of a storm, racing toward Canada, with pressure under 974mb. We’ll need to gather data on rainfall and wind gusts from Sunday night, but in terms of Monday… we’re not out of the woods yet.
Scattered rain showers will push northward out of the valley by mid day, and we should see breaks of sunshine by the afternoon hours. But any sunshine we get on Monday will be overshadowed by the powerful wind gusts out of the Northwest.
The worst winds Sunday night were in the eastern half of the Hudson Valley. So it’s only fitting that the worst winds on Monday will be west of the Hudson River, and especially in the Catskills. Wind gusts of 25 to 45mph will be found all over the valley. But in the Catskills, gusts over 50mph are possible, with power outages also possible. Wind gusts this strong could certainly bring down trees and power lines, so be extra alert as you go about your day.
We’ll continue to update the situation on Facebook and Twitter as we go through the day, and conditions unfold.
Have a great day!
