A warm and unstable day across the Hudson Valley on Tuesday, as several rounds of downpours pushed through the area. While there were no reports of severe weather in the Hudson Valley itself, just to our north, there were plenty of reports of severe weather… including one EF-0 tornado.
For the majority of the Hudson Valley… the story was the rainfall…
Anywhere you see light green… is around an inch. Yellows are 1 to 2 inches of rain, and oranges are 2 inches or more of rainfall. You can see in general 1 to 2 inches of rain fell across the northern 2/3 of the Hudson Valley. Southeastern sections saw quite a bit less rain… as the majority of the rain bands were focused west of the Hudson River… and north of I-84. The important thing… is we continue to get soaking rainfall, which is rapidly eliminating the drought situation over the Hudson Valley.
But now we deserve a break… and a break is exactly what we’ll get on Wednesday…
Not much to say… clouds will be virtually non-existent on Wednesday. Wall to wall sunshine and blue skies are the story for Wednesday. The only question, is will the temperatures respond as well?
The answer? … you bet! Temps should warm nicely… into the mid 80s for the most part. Factor in that the humidity should be low, and very comfortable… and you’ve got a 5 star day. Thursday looks pretty good as well… before we become unsettled again as we approach the weekend. For complete forecast details, please check the HVW 5 Day Forecast.
After a long 2 days… we hope you all enjoy a beautiful day on Wednesday, and we’ll be sure to enjoy the ‘quiet’ weather for a change.
