With the majority of the country’s focus squarely on Hurricane Irma near Puerto Rico, we’ve got some unsettled weather locally, that could impact your plans…
A frontal trough has pushed into the region, and on Tuesday it brought with it the threat of severe weather. With the convective threat lower on Wednesday, it will remain cooler and unsettled, with scattered rain showers through the day. It looks like a period of rain showers is likely during the morning hours. Then the showers taper for the afternoon, and pick up again in the evening. The trick with this kind of weather pattern… is timing the rain showers is very difficult. So in general, it’s best to expect the threat of showers at any point during the day.
The clouds, showers, and northerly wind will keep temperatures pinned down in the 60s for most of the day. So expect there to be a raw chill in the air for a good part of the day. The boundary will slowly press east Wednesday evening… but before it does, there could be a significant band of rain showers pushing along the frontal boundary. This could lead to a period of soaking rain, and possible threats of flash flooding… especially east of the Hudson River. Something to watch out for.
Conditions will improve on Thursday, with sunshine returning and highs pushing into the 70s. For complete details, please check the HVW 5 DAY FORECAST. Have a great Wednesday!
