September is drawing to a close, but the feel of summer is holding strong.
Clouds will mix with sunshine on our Tuesday, as we continue to be locked under a ridge of high pressure. After we broke a record high on Monday in Poughkeepsie, things should be a touch cooler on Tuesday. Poughkeepsie hit 91° yesterday… breaking the old record of 90° set in 2007. Tuesday we’ll remain hot and rather humid… but our flow will be lightly out of the SE. With a light flow off the ocean, temperatures should be a degree or two cooler this afternoon. Expect highs on Tuesday in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity will still be with us however, with dew points once again in the mid to upper 60s. So another summer-like, sticky day ahead of us.
We’ll have one more hot and humid day ahead of us for Wednesday, before a frontal boundary pushes through the Hudson Valley Wednesday night. We don’t expect much with the front… just a shift in the winds, and maybe a spot shower in one or two places. Otherwise, we should remain dry. By Thursday, a persistent NW wind will usher in much cooler… much drier… much more seasonable air, into the Hudson Valley.
So summer lovers have 2 more days to bask in the warmth. By the end of the week, we’ll be back into the low and mid 70s… more typical of late September. Have a great day!
