Thursday: Partly cloudy, breezy and frigid. High in the upper teens to low 20s. West wind 5 to 10mph. Wind chills in the single digits.
Thursday Night: Increasing clouds with snow showers after midnight, diminishing wind. Lows in the mid teens. Snow accumulation a dusting to an inch.
Friday: Morning snow showers, followed by a mix of clouds and sun… along with scattered flurries and breezy conditions. High in the upper 20s to low 30s. West wind increasing to 10 to 15mph, with higher gusts. Total accumulation of a dusting to 2 inches.
Wednesday was another brutal day for the Hudson Valley. A cold day from start to finish… but after a brief snow squall around mid day… the afternoon was a “special” kind of cold. Temperatures plummeted during the afternoon, so that by sunset, the entire area was between 10° and 15°. The winds have been cruel as well… with wind chills in the -10° to -30° range for the most part.
Thursday is bitter… no way to sugarcoat it. The wind is less, so while still very cold, it will feel better than Wednesday. Another Alberta Clipper rolls in very late Thursday night, and lasts into Friday morning. Some light snow showers are expected, maybe a few bursts of snow… but in general, a dusting to 2 inches can be expected (most locations around an inch). Then yet another arctic assault takes place Friday afternoon thru Saturday. We’ve got complete details on the HVW 5 Day Forecast, so please check it out for more info.
