After tracking a storm for over 10 days the only grazes most of the region departs, its kinda like a bad break up, especially one that challenges your forecasting till the very end. It appears in looking at the the final observations that areas in the lower HV in our 3-6″ forecast area topped off around 4-5″ and as forecasted most of the remainder of the region either saw nothing, or a trace to an inch or two. Increasing the snowfall forecast across the SE parts of the region clearly was the right call although we loathe forecast changes lol.
Yesterday was also the 6 year anniversary of the creation of Hudson Valley Weather, six years ago this was only a Facebook page with about 20 likes, now with over 100k likes, a website that has had over 10 million visits, an IOS app and an android app about to be released, a twitter page and our forecast is on all of the local IHeart media radio stations!!! Wow, what an amazing six years it’s been and I want to personally say thank you to all of you for making HVW what it is today!

Your 1100+ 5 Star reviews tell us that we are on the right course!!! Thank You!
High pressure will be building into the region as our low pressure pulls away from the NE coastline. This will help to clear the skies and calm the winds. So the main theme today will be COLD! Highs struggling out of the 20’s. Tonight those clear skies and calm winds will allow maximum radiational cooling and lows will bottom out in the single digits in most locations. A snow and ice threat is brewing for early in the week, with an eventual change over to rain as warm air once again invades our region from the pacific. We will have more on the snow and ice threat tonight. Everyone have a great day and stay warm!
