Wednesday: Periods of rain… possibly heavy at times, tapering off during the morning. Remaining mostly cloudy during the afternoon. High in the mid to upper 70s. Chance of rain 90%.
Wednesday Night: Becoming partly cloudy and quite chilly. Low in the upper 40s to low 50s.
Thursday: Sunshine mixed with clouds and rather cool. High in the low to mid 70s.
Once the storm system pulls away on Wednesday, it will draw down more cool Canadian air. The flow will be out of the northwest for the next several days, and with the help of an upper level low pressure in Canada… the Hudson Valley will see temperatures that are quite a bit cooler than normal for this time of year. Right now… it appears that parts of the area could flirt with 80° on Wednesday, but that by Thursday, the cooler air has really established itself into the region.
We look for that trend to continue as we head toward the weekend. Friday looks very similar to Thursday… as the upper level low pressure will be holding on for dear life in southern Canada. That means a continued northwest (that’s wind direction… not Kim Kardashian’s baby) flow for our area. A spotty light shower can’t be totally ruled out, but the majority of the area stays dry.
Saturday and Sunday look near normal in terms of temps, with Saturday looking like the better of the 2 days at the moment, because Sunday could see a chance of showers.
On that note… I’m exhausted. A very busy day for me personally… between work and HVW. Tracking this storm has kept me quite busy as well… since I do feel added pressure to get the first few storms right, being new to HVW and all. This storm system has been a beast, because the strong south / southeast flow is going to lead to heavy rain somewhere, just pinpointing whether it’s in the Hudson Valley… or Massachusetts… or NJ, that’s the tricky part. So having been run ragged by this summer time storm… with winter-like features… I’m going to call it a night. Have a great Wednesday!
