Saturday: Scattered showers during the early morning, followed by a mix of clouds and sun. High in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low in the upper 50s.
Sunday: Morning clouds and scattered showers, followed by a mix of clouds and sunshine, with spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms. High near 80°
**Updated** – Rather than do an entirely new post, I just wanted to update the post from this morning. The area of rain on the simulated radars below did not make it as far north as expected, and is already pushing east of the area as of 9am this morning. The result is nothing but good news for the Hudson Valley, as the threat of showers is rapidly diminishing. Also… a quick look at the satellite, shows that the low clouds have pushed to the eastern half of the Hudson Valley… and that breaks of sunshine will become increasingly likely as we go thru the morning. By afternoon… it looks like we’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine, along with no real threat of showers. A day that just a few hours ago looked very so-so… is now looking not too bad at all…
The theme for this weekend will certainly be “unsettled”… but in the grand scheme of things, it definitely could be worse. Saturday starts off with cloudy skies and a radar image that looks pretty ominous. A decent area of rain is just south of the Hudson Valley, impacting NYC with some steady rainfall. However, as we move through the morning on Saturday, the area of rain will only clip the Hudson Valley as it moves to the northeast… sparing us a soaking rain. Below are snap shots of the simulated radar as we go thru Saturday:
So while Saturday will be mostly cloudy… with only one or two breaks of sun late in the day… it’s not a total washout either. Afternoon highs do climb toward 80° in spots… so it does appear that we’ll see some sun in places, but don’t be surprised if the sky remains very gray in places on Saturday.
It appears as if Saturday night and Sunday morning will be similar… in that another area of rain could form to our south overnight, and clip the Hudson Valley, much like the area of rain from Saturday morning. It does appear as if Sunday will see more sunshine than Saturday… even though the day may start out gray as well. But we’ll take a closer look at that Saturday night.
Hope your Saturday is a great one!
