After being 1 degree short of a heat wave earlier in the week, Saturday is going to be nearly 30 degrees cooler.
Gray skies and scattered showers will be the deal for at least the first half of the day. A northerly breeze will continue to usher in a fall like chill to the Hudson Valley. Temperatures will be in the 50s for the morning, and we’ll be dodging areas of drizzle and scattered showers into the early afternoon. You can see on this radar simulation that runs from 6am Saturday thru midnight Saturday night, that the rain showers should push south of our area between 1pm and 3pm in general…
Once the moisture pushes to our south, we might see some breaks of sunshine in the afternoon. That could allow us to end the gray day on a positive note. We definitely need the rain, seeing how we haven’t had any measurable rain in Poughkeepsie since September 14th. We won’t get much help today however… with most areas only seeing a tenth of an inch or so.
Sunday will be a beautiful day across the region. After a very chilly start… where parts of the valley could see morning lows in the upper 30s, we’ll see lots of sunshine and blue skies… and afternoon highs in the upper 60s to near 70. Right where we should be for this time of year.
Have a great day!
