2:30pm Radar Update
A quick look at the radar, and you can see the showers now entering the Hudson Valley from our west. So far, there are only one or two thunderstorm cells with his band of showers, and the showers appear mainly light. That said, the showers could enhance over the next few hours, and a few thunderstorms could pop up within the band of showers. So plan for a soggy afternoon and evening commute.

Tuesday started out mediocre, and finished up quite nicely. After the rain exited the Hudson Valley, the sun came out and moderated the temperatures.
Wednesday looks a bit different… as the day starts out decent… and ends unsettled…
Mostly cloudy skies… a considerablely stiff breeze… and the threat of afternoon showers will linger through the day Wednesday. The showers begin to develop and enhance early in the afternoon…
And a stronger, more organized line of showers and embedded thunderstorms could move through just before sunset. Something we’ll be tracking closely. Afternoon temperatures appear to be slightly cooler than Tuesday, but still rather typical of what you’d expect this time of year…
An unsettled day is likely for Wednesday… and that theme could repeat itself on Thursday (less threat of organized showers). Complete details are on the HVW 5 Day Forecast. Have a great Wednesday!
It’s been an incredibly long night… and I’m completely exhausted… but I just had to share this with you before I collapse from “Weather Peanut induced Exhaustion”.
So tonight, Ulster County recognized HVW with a proclamation, declaring February 2015 “Hudson Valley Weather Month”… due to the record cold we saw. Alex and I were presented the award at the Ulster County Legislative meeting Tuesday Night… and to say we are honored is an understatement. We operate HVW with a passion that even we can’t quite figure out (as I sit here at 1:15am). While we’re aware of the impact and reach of HVW, it’s not something we dwell on or think about often. So it’s easy to forget that HVW has a real impact on the plans and lives of our fellow HV residents. Tuesday night… we were reminded of just how real of an impact HVW has. We got to shake the hands of some wonderful HVW fans tonight, and talk face to face with people we’ve never met… but know us thru HVW. It was a truly awesome experience.
Thank you so much to Ulster County… thank you for allowing us to serve you, and we will continue to provide you (and the entire Hudson Valley) with the best forecast possible. Have a great Wednesday!
