The weather won’t be our pot of gold… at least not for this St. Patrick’s Day. Clouds and scattered showers will kick off the day, so expect a damp AM commute…
But we’ll begin to see improvement as the day wears on… the showers will depart by late morning, and we’ll begin to see increasing NW winds, and some breaks in the clouds during the afternoon. Temps should climb up into the upper 40s and near 50° by lunch time… only to begin falling during the afternoon as the cold air invades the HV.
Wednesday continues to look very, very cold. Most of the Hudson Valley will struggle to reach the 32° mark on Wednesday. The average high for Wednesday is 49°… so that is almost 20 degrees below average. That is some brutal cold… and what’s worse… check out the wind chills that are projected for Wednesday afternoon…
Thursday looks a touch better… but still a solid 10 to 15 degrees below average. As the cold air really locks into the Hudson Valley.
That leads us to Friday… and we’re monitoring a coastal storm threat for our area.
So the “warmth” we saw over the past week or so… is about to be booted out of the area. Winter is looking to make it’s final stand… at least in terms of temperatures and the general pattern. Will we see a snowstorm or two? Only time will tell. But we can tell you, that the pattern is headed into a very wintry one for the final 2 weeks of March. Rest easy… we’ll be sure to walk you thru whatever may be headed our way.
Complete details on the next 5 days can be found in the HVW 5 Day Forecast. Otherwise… Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you have a great one!!
