Clouds will likely be the weather story on Thursday. The frontal boundary that brought light showers to the Hudson Valley Wednesday morning, will get hung up over our area on Thursday. There are a lot of clouds associated with this frontal boundary… and so that translates into mostly cloudy skies for the HV on Thursday.
The clouds should help to keep temperatures down just a few degrees… but we do expect a few breaks of sunshine as well, so don’t be surprised if we still reach 80° during the afternoon… meaning this map could be a bit underdone.
But along the frontal boundary, an area of low pressure will make it’s way thru the Ohio Valley, and into the Hudson Valley by Thursday night. This storm isn’t very large, but it does have a good bit of moisture associated with it. The tricky part of the forecast, is pinpointing ‘where‘ the heavier moisture will track. While the entire area should see measurable rainfall… as of Wednesday night, it appears the steadier and longer duration rains may be focused on our northern areas (Columbia, Greene & Delaware counties).
You can see by the Futurecast radar image, that a slight shift in the storm track could move the heavier rain just a bit further south… so we’ll have to wait and see how much rain falls. As a rule… expect periods of light to moderate rain to begin falling between 5pm and 9pm… and continuing until after midnight. Rainfall totals are expected to remain under 1″…
So while not a major event… some more rainfall is on the way to the Hudson Valley. Looking to the weekend, the lovers of summer weather will be in their glory. Will we finally crack the 90° mark? We’ll see. For the complete forecast details, please check out the HVW 5 Day Forecast.
