After a chilly first half of September, we’ve seen well above average temperatures for nearly a month now. That trend continues on Saturday…
Morning clouds and even an spot sprinkle are possible. As the morning progresses, we’ll see the clouds mix with increasing sunshine. Our breeze out of the southwest will increase through the day. That will mean increasing gusts up to 20mph by late in the day, and that breeze should also help clear the skies a bit and warm the air. Afternoon highs will be nearly 15 degrees above average… approaching 80° for many places. That’s about 8 degrees shy of the record for the day which was 88° in 1963.
The warmth will extend into Sunday as well… but we’ll have some scattered showers and thundershowers to deal with during the morning.
You can see on the simulated radar, that by 8am on Sunday, we’ll already be seeing scattered rain showers across the region. A brief downpour or rumble of thunder can’t be ruled out. But this line should weaken shortly after sunrise… and allow us to have improving conditions by mid to late morning. That should set up a nice Sunday afternoon.
Looking toward Monday… we do expect to see the influences from Tropical Storm Nate. Nate will move quickly, and spread moisture into the Hudson Valley for Monday. The exact timing and intensity of the moisture will need to be worked on over the next 24 hours. But it’s safe to say that if you have plans for Monday, you should factor rain into the equation.
We hope you have a great day, everyone! Thanks for continuing to support HVW!
