A beautiful fall day to close out a very warm month of October…
We’ll have lots of sunshine and blue skies across the valley… with a few extra clouds up in the Catskills. Our flow will be steadily out of the WSW on Tuesday, with gusts over 20mph at times. With afternoon highs projected in the mid 50s… that could create wind chills (yes we said ‘wind chill’), in the upper 40s at times today. You’ll want your autumn jacket today, to fight off that seasonal chill.
Tonight, the chill really sinks in. If you haven’t had a frost yet this season, that likely changes tonight.
Winds will die down tonight, and under mostly clear skies… temperatures will quickly drop into the 30s before midnight. By dawn… most of the region will be near or below freezing, giving cause to widespread frost and freeze conditions.
Most of the region has seen a hard frost or freeze, which brought an end to the growing season. As a result, we don’t expect to see any frost or freeze advisories tonight. But anyone who is still protecting vegetation… you’ll want to take action tonight.
