After Wednesday featured lots of sunshine, along with an increasing breeze… Thursday we’ll see clouds push in during the afternoon.
Skies will start out partly cloudy on Thursday, with a light SE breeze. Temps will be in the mid to upper 20s across the Hudson Valley to start the day. As the day progresses, the SE flow will pull some cloudiness and moisture in off the Atlantic. Valley areas will see the most clouds, and even a chance of some patchy drizzle during the afternoon… while the Catskills may hold onto breaks of sunshine through the afternoon hours. Temps will remain seasonably cool, with highs expected into the mid 40s on average across the region. Anyone with outdoor plans for the afternoon, may want to factor in a spot shower or patchy areas of drizzle into the equation… just to be on the safe side.
A frontal boundary approaches from the west after sunset… and that will push more organized areas of scattered showers into the Hudson Valley after dark. Temperatures should hold in the upper 30s to low 40s on average Thursday evening, before skies partially clear well after midnight. As of now, it appears that things will dry out before the Friday AM commute.
We’ll close out the work week… and start the month of December… with some dry weather on Friday, as winds once again shift out of the northwest. Highs on Friday will be in the low to mid 40s. The chapter on November should close around 1.5 degrees below average. So that puts us with October and November on track with our Winter Outlook. We projected a colder than average December…
And while December may start out tranquil… we’re sounding the alarm… the wolves of winter are going to begin to howl…
Winter arrives in about 7 days, with some MUCH colder temperatures across the entire country. More details on that in the next day or two… but let’s just say, with regard to our Winter Outlook… It’s beginning to look like the plan is coming together.
Have a great Thursday!
