In the wake of the front on Tuesday… winds will shift out of the northwest on Wednesday. That translates into low humidity, and a good deal of sunshine…
Partly to mostly sunny skies across the valley for Wednesday… with a few extra clouds possible in the Catskills. A light breeze out of the northwest will usher in a comfortable air mass, and low humidity. Always a welcome thing this time of year. Highs should be near or a few degrees above the 80° mark. A generally beautiful day shaping up.
And Wednesday marks day 1, of what should become a fantastic stretch of weather. We surely could use some rainfall… but with that not on the immediate horizon, we can at least take solace in the fact that a large ridge of high pressure will set up shop over the eastern US by late week, and into the weekend.
The east coast will be protected by a monster ridge of high pressure. While the high isn’t super strong… it is quite large in terms of area… and this will deflect weather disturbances up into Canada, or keep them suppressed to our south (like the rain showers you see on this map.
As it looks now… our next shot at rain comes over the weekend, as the high pressure exits, and a southwest flow returns to the Hudson Valley. That will open the door for warmer temps, and elevated humidity levels. That atmospheric moisture… could translate into some afternoon T-Storms. So we’ll watch for that, and cross our fingers.

Have a fantastic Wednesday, Hudson Valley!
