The cold front has passed, we’ve got much cooler… much drier air across the Hudson Valley, and that’s going to lead to a couple absolutely gorgeous days of weather…
Thursday: AM clouds giving way to increasing sunshine during the afternoon. Much less humid. High in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Thursday Night: Clear and comfortable. Low in the low to mid 50s.
Friday: Mostly Sunny and beautiful. High in the low 80s.
Wednesday sure was a busy day across the Hudson Valley. Alex and I had our first test in terms of working together during a storm outbreak, and I think we did rather well… all in all. You see, each of us is used to working alone… which has it’s benefits. You can say whatever you want, whenever you want to say it. As a team… you have to coordinate the approach, so that we’re not repeating ourselves, or stepping on each other’s toes. It’s going to be a work in progress I’m sure… as we each learn how the other operates. But our main concern, is to get you the information you need, and I think we accomplished that goal on Wednesday.
Wednesday Radar Estimated Rainfall:
Above is the Radar Estimated Rainfall map from the National Weather Service, showing Wednesday’s rainfall event. You can see that as is often the case during summer rainfall events… location was everything. Areas east of the Hudson River saw much more rainfall than areas to the west. Poughkeepsie clocked in with 0.33″ of rain officially at the Dutchess County Airport, but some places in northern Dutchess and southern Columbia counties saw as much as 2.00″ of rain. There weren’t any reports to the NWS of severe weather, but I did see a few pictures of downed trees across the area, as well as the reports of a few fires that were started by lightning strikes. All in all… it was a very busy day across the region. Now… we get a well deserved break, enjoy the nice weather!
