We’ve got a hot Labor Day lined up for you today… and it could break the record…
Mostly sunny skies will set the stage for a gorgeous “unofficial end to summer”. It will feel every bit like summer, as a warm southwest wind pulls additional heat… and even some elevated levels of humidity… back into the Hudson Valley. The record high is 90°, set back in 2001, and that number is very much in danger on Monday.
In general… expect mostly sunny and hot conditions across the Hudson Valley for your Labor Day. The humidity will rise a touch today, and that will make it feel just a bit more muggy. But all in all, it’s not too uncomfortable. It will be hot… really hot, with afternoon highs likely in the 90° to 93° range for the valley.
We’ll have 2 more days where records are in jeopardy… as this time of year, the average highs are falling. That means that the record highs are lower as well… and the records for Tuesday are 92° (2007), and Wednesday 91° (1989)… are very close to the projected highs for those days.
We’re in some record territory the next couple days, Hudson Valley… so be sure to take it slow, and observe the usual precautions when it’s excessively hot. This won’t be an “oppressive” summer heat wave near 100°… but it’s record territory for the 2nd week of September for sure.
For those of you who have been desperately craving some rainfall… we finally have good news for you! A frontal boundary may get hung up along the east coast by Thursday and Friday, and that could spell some much needed and welcome rainfall for the growers of the Hudson Valley (even though the growing season is coming to an end).

Have a wonderful day, Hudson Valley!!
