Sunday: Sunshine mixed with a few clouds. High in the low to mid 50s.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low in the low to mid 30s.
Monday: Partly cloudy. High in the mid to upper 50s.
A slightly different Sunday Outlook, due to the fact that it is already Sunday morning (updates usually done the night before). So we’ll have the usual full update tonight.
A couple days of tranquil weather. Sunday looks quite nice, just a bit cool… despite a good deal of sunshine. Monday is basically Sunday’s weather, just with the thermostat turned up a couple degrees. By Tuesday and Wednesday… we’ll see warm air surge up in advance of the arctic cold front. Both days look to break 60 degrees… and possibly as high as the mid 60s. A couple fantastic days in terms of temperature… but we may see a few clouds, especially by Wednesday. So we’ll track that as we move through the week.
But some big changes, as an arctic cold front pushes thru by late in the day on Wednesday, and the temps will be falling on Thursday. By Friday, the chill has settled into the Hudson Valley, and the result looks like this:
Those aren’t low temperatures ladies and gentlemen… these are projected highs. High temps in the low 40s are more likely in the valleys, as the GFS model is usually a little too aggressive with the cold. But that doesn’t change the fact that some serious cold is on the way, because the average highs for this time of year are in the low to mid 50s… making these highs 10 to 15 degrees below average.
Finally… in Saturday’s post (yesterday), we discussed the potential for a coastal storm at the end of this week (Friday / Saturday). A lot of question remains on this. It all has to do with whether a low pressure forms along that arctic boundary on Friday. 36 hours ago, it looked likely that it would happen. Today… the models have lost that wave of low pressure… and only the cold remains. We mentioned the threat in Saturday’s post because we believe the potential is quite real. Computer models find and lose storms in the long range all the time… so our commentary is based more on the pattern, than on the actual model data. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Friday night’s computer model run showed exactly what Alex and I have been discussing for a couple days. We’ll keep tabs on this, and update you in the Sunday night post.
Ok… time to get the day going. Have a great Sunday!
