After a Black Friday that saw mild temperatures and tranquil shopping weather, Saturday looks just about as nice!
Saturday starts off with mostly sunny skies across most of the valley. A cold front will approach from the west, associated with a weak disturbance in Canada. As it approaches, it will spread clouds and even a stray shower or two into the region. This should begin to increase during the early afternoon, first in the Catskills… and shift to impact the valley areas by mid to late afternoon (after 2pm). The shower threat looks very limited… with most places staying entirely dry. We just wanted to discuss… in the event you see a stray shower on Saturday.
Afternoon highs on Saturday should climb into the low to mid 50s… before dropping during the mid to late afternoon hours. We’ll see winds pick up out of the WNW and gust over 20mph late on Saturday, and into Saturday night. Lows Saturday night likely dip into the low and mid 30s with a good bit of wind.
That brings us to Sunday, where we expect some lake effect snow showers to push their way into the Catskills. The lake effect likely won’t have much left over for us in the valley areas… so maybe a flurry or two seems possible on Sunday. Temps Sunday look quite a bit cooler, with highs pushing to around 40° in the Hudson Valley… mid 30s in the Catskills.
Looking to next week… we’ve got more ups and downs on the way. We have no major storms on the way the next 5 days, but with minor changes in the wind direction expected, temps will fluctuate from highs in the low 40s to the mid 50s. We’ll try to take a look at the longer range pattern in the coming days.
For now… we hope you have a superb Saturday!
