After a 10 day stretch of dry weather in the Hudson Valley, the remnants of Hurricane Harvey have pushed into the Hudson Valley. While it’s a shadow of it’s former self, Harvey has brought some light to moderate rain to the region. So we’ll start off Sunday with periods of rain, but can we get the rain to exit… and salvage part of the afternoon?
Periods of light to moderate rain will fall across the entire Hudson Valley through the morning hours. But as we approach mid day, we should begin to see the rain push north and east of the region. Here’s the Futurecast Radar that projected from 6pm Saturday evening, through 4pm on Sunday…
You can see that it’s going to be tricky to get all of the moisture to exit the region. After the bulk of the moisture pushes through around mid day, we may get hit with a few wrap around bands of moisture early in the afternoon. Depending on how this unfolds will determine just how quickly things improve Sunday afternoon. But either way, things will dry out Sunday afternoon, and breaks of sun are likely by sunset.
When all is said and done, rainfall amounts on average should be between 0.50″ and 1.0″ across the HV.
Then all of this sets us up with a beautiful day on Monday. Labor Day looks outstanding for outdoor activities, with mostly sunny skies, low humidity, and highs around 80°. A beautiful conclusion to our holiday weekend.
So cross your fingers, with a little luck, Sunday afternoon could turn out fairly decent. But until then, make sure you grab the rain gear for all of your morning activities on Sunday. Have a great day!
