After a month of May that finished 6.7° above average… we’ve started the month of June off on a completely different foot. Poughkeepsie saw a very raw start to the work week, that featured some much needed rainfall. Poughkeepsie has seen a little over 1 inch of rain since Sunday morning… but parts of the area have seen 3 inches or more of rain in the past 48 hours.
Tuesday looks to be another cold, raw day… more typical of late March or early April, instead of June.
Also similar to Monday… will be the presence of light rain and drizzle across the HV…
After some steady rain pushes through parts of the region Monday night… we’ll be left with areas of light rain and drizzle. The simulated radar above for 8am Tuesday morning, shows a widespread light drizzle across the HV, with some embedded light rain showers. Keep the umbrella handy, as drizzle looks to linger through the morning hours… giving us another raw day.
As the band of moisture slowly pushes south and east, the HV should begin to dry out from NW to SE. That said… it looks like the Hudson Valley could remain damp for a good part of the afternoon, thanks to persistent areas of drizzle. With a little luck, this moisture will move out of the Hudson Valley faster… but Tuesday appears likely to become another gray, drizzly and damp day.
Wednesday we’ll see some major improvements, as sunshine and blue skies take over the Hudson Valley. We should also see highs push into the 70s, giving us a very welcome change of pace. As we move through the week… we’ll see the warmer (more seasonable) weather continue… but also a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms return to the Hudson Valley. We’ve had some much needed and very welcome rain across the HV in the past 2 days… but we could still use more. The almanac continues to show a dramatic 6.5″ deficit for the year… so some PM thunderstorms later this week could help.

Have a great Tuesday everyone… and thanks for the continued support!
