Ok… Ok… horrible play on words, from a book I’ll never read. But gray skies will be a consistent theme for much of Tuesday.
A disturbance over the Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles to our south… is spinning clouds and a few showers up into the Hudson Valley today. For the most part, our Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a cool northeast breeze, and highs in the low 70s. Depending on how things go this afternoon… we could see some breaks of sunshine, cross your fingers.
The storm over the Atlantic is not going anywhere in a hurry. It’s stalled out southeast of North Carolina, and will likely be a factor for several days. The good news for the Hudson Valley, is that high pressure should push in from Canada by Wednesday, and suppress the clouds further south. That means lots of sunshine for our Wednesday and Thursday.
Where this ocean storm ends up, is still a bit of a mystery. It appears likely to wobble into the southeast, before getting caught up in the jet stream, and pulled northeast. Some of the data has it impacting our area by Sunday… so we’ll continue to monitor it. It’s a very uncertain situation, because at the moment… there is nothing steering this disturbance.
Otherwise… we continue to put together the Winter Outlook. While the blog posts may be somewhat short for the next few days, the 24 hour forecast (top of main page by the radar), and the HVW 5 DAY FORECAST are always updated.
Have a great Tuesday, Hudson Valley!
