Our run of tranquil mid-summer weather continues on Thursday. We’ve got lots of sunshine and blue skies to start the day, and that trend should continue into the afternoon hours. We have a light and variable wind today, so don’t expect much of a breeze. The good news, is that humidity levels should remain comfortably low today. Dew points are only projected in the mid to upper 50s, so that should keep the air comfortably dry. Afternoon highs will be on target for this time of year, pushing into the low and mid 80s. There is a slight chance for a isolated afternoon shower in the mountains, but the odds are less than 25%. The overwhelming majority of the region will remain dry today.
As we push into Friday, we’ll begin to see clouds advance on the Hudson Valley, out ahead of our next system. Most of the region looks dry on Friday. The exception being the Catskills, where it looks like afternoon showers or T-Showers are possible. We’ll have to watch and see if this threat extends into the valley areas as well.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms then seem likely Friday night into Saturday. It’s likely not a steady soaking rain, but we’ll be unsettled for most of Friday night and through Saturday. Things look to improve on Sunday, so the 2nd half of the weekend is looking better than the first half.
