The cold has invaded the Hudson Valley, and so has the brutal wind. We saw some damaging wind gusts between 40mph and 60mph across parts of the HV. Thankfully, the wind on Wednesday looks much more harmless. Well… harmless in that it won’t be bringing down trees and powerlines. The wind chills that this wind will generate… look plenty harmful…
These wind chills of upper teens to low 20s, are your middle of the day wind chills. The closer we get to the evening, wind chills in the single digits appear likely, so bundle up!
The chill is hear thru the end of the work week. You can get the full details on the HVW 5 Day Forecast… but while Wednesday looks ugly, Thursday is just a touch better, before our storm threat for Friday appears.
The GFS model (shown above), continues to be the furthest south of all the data… bringing a coating to an inch or two of light, wet snow across the Hudson Valley. The European model and the Canadian computer models have the Hudson Valley in the “bulls eye” of a moderate snow event for Friday afternoon and evening. For now… it’s looking like a snow event is likely, but exactly where and how much are very big questions that need to be ironed out.
We’ll be tracking this as we get closer, and will give you more details as the data comes into better agreement. We’ll try to update the situation Wednesday afternoon, otherwise we’ll have an update Wednesday night. Have a great Wednesday!!
