Monday Discussion : Unsettled and Damp

After a beautiful spring weekend, a frontal boundary will spread clouds and scattered rain showers into the Hudson Valley to start the work week.
Monday: Cloudy and chilly, with scattered showers and patchy drizzle. High 50° to 55°.
Mon Night: Mainly cloudy skies with scattered showers possible. Low in the mid 40s.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy skies with a few scattered rain showers possible. High in the low 60s.
 
Clouds will increase late on Sunday, and bring scattered rain showers into the region for Sunday night. Those rain showers will linger into the Monday morning commute, and the threat for showers and drizzle will be with us through the day on Monday. The low clouds and drizzle will keep temperatures pinned in the low 50s, so a rather raw start to the work week is expected.
 
We should dry out for Tuesday, as we find ourselves in between two storm systems. Which means that a mid week storm system will bring rain showers back to the Hudson Valley. Some ups and downs to the weather expected this week. We hope your week gets off to a great start!

Sunday Outlook : Outstanding Day

Saturday was a beautiful day around the region, but Sunday looks even better!
Sunday: Sunshine mixing with increasing clouds. High in the mid to upper 60s.
Sun Night: Skies turning mainly cloudy, with scattered showers likely. Low around 50°
Monday: Cloudy skies with scattered showers and patchy drizzle. High in the mid 50s.
 
Lots of sunshine and blue skies to start the day on Sunday, with some increasing high clouds through the afternoon hours. Temps will rise into the 60s, possibly climbing near 70° in a few places. A frontal boundary will push into the region Sunday night and bring clouds and scattered rain showers and drizzle. Those will last into Monday, before gradually tapering off through the day. So while Monday may not look perfect… Sunday sure is going to be close!

Friday Outlook : Milder Every Day

The temperatures could be a bit warmer, but all in all, a very fine spring weekend is coming our way…
…Friday: Mostly sunny skies. Cool. High 55° to 60°.
…Fri. Night: Mostly clear and cold. Low in the mid 30s.
…Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny skies. High in the low 60s.
…Sat Night: Partly cloudy and crisp. Low in the upper 30s.
…Sunday: Partly cloudy skies and seasonable. High in the mid 60s.
 
The chilly temps will be with us to start on Friday. Morning lows could be near freezing, so frost is possible for your morning commute. But conditions will improve through the day. Then this weekend, we should see lots of sunshine and blue skies. We’ll see afternoon highs a bit milder each day… in the low 60s on Saturday, and probably in the mid 60s on Sunday.
Our next chance of rain appears to be on Monday as a frontal system spreads showers into the region. But until then, any weekend plans should be ‘all systems go’. Hopefully everyone has a great start to their weekend!

Thursday Discussion : Another Chilly Day

After morning lows in the 30s around the region, we’ll have another chilly, late April day in the Hudson Valley…
Thursday: Clouds mixing with sunshine… windy. High in the low 50s. Wind chills in the 40s.
Thursday Night: Partly cloudy and cold, frost possible. Low in the low 30s.
Friday: Mix of clouds and sunshine. Cool. High 55° to 60°.
Friday Night: Partly cloudy and cold. Low in the mid 30s.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny skies. High in the low 60s.
Sat. Night: Partly cloudy and crisp. Low in the upper 30s.
Sunday: Partly cloudy skies and seasonable. High in the mid 60s.
 
Another blustery day around the region, with temps that started in the 30s, will gradually climb into the low 50s for afternoon highs. NW winds will remain gusty today, giving wind chills in the 40s.
Winds should diminish tonight, and with temps falling again into the 30s, areas of frost could be possible.
 
As we look to the weekend, things look dry through the weekend, and temps will gradually climb closer to average… and by Sunday, we could see a gorgeous Spring day, with highs in the mid 60s. We hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Wednesday Discussion : The Chill Returns

The cold front has pushed through, and strong NW winds continue to usher in some cold Canadian air to the Hudson Valley. Temps this afternoon will hover around 50°, but with NW winds, it will feel quite a bit colder…
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, windy and cold. High around 50°. Wind chills in the 40s.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy skies, blustery and very cold. Areas of frost possible. Low near 30°. Wind chills in the 20s.
Thursday: Clouds mixing with sunshine… windy. High in the low 50s. Wind chills in the 40s.
Thursday Night: Partly cloudy and cold, frost possible. Low in the low 30s.
 
For the next 2 to 3 days, temps will be about 10 to 15 degrees below average for this time of year. That will mean we all need to keep the heavier coat handy for the next few days at least. Temps will slowly moderate into the weekend, closer to where we should be for this time of year. But at least through the rest of the work week, you’ll notice quite a bit of a chill in the air.
There is some concern about frost at night, with temperatures right around the freezing mark. However, Wednesday night at least there will be a breeze that should limit the development of frost. But with temps around 30° overnight, if you’ve got sensitive vegetation, you’re going to want to take steps to protect those plants.
But on the bright side, at least the next several days will be rain free. So hopefully despite the chill, you can find ways to enjoy the day. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Tuesday Outlook : Clouds & Patchy Drizzle

As the next cold front approaches on Tuesday, we’ll see clouds move into the region, and they’ll be with us through the day.
Forecast:
Tuesday: A few scattered showers… otherwise mostly cloudy skies. High around 60°
Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy skies with periods of scattered showers. Low in the low 40s.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, windy and cold. High around 50°. Wind chills in the 40s.
 
Low clouds and patchy drizzle will be possible through much of the day, with a few periods of scattered showers possible, especially late in the day and at night. The shower and drizzle threat will be with us into the evening hours, but should taper after midnight. A cold NW wind replaces the clouds on Wednesday, as we should see some sunshine, but the NW wind will keep real feel temps in the 40s. High temps should hold in the low 50s through the back half of the week, so keep that late winter/early spring coat handy.
Have a great Tuesday!

Monday Outlook : Good Start Before the Chill

A beautiful spring Sunday across the Hudson Valley, with temps in the 60s, and lots of sunshine. As we head into the coming week, things start off great, but will become unsettled Monday night:
 
FORECAST:
Monday: Sunshine mixing with increasing late day clouds. High in the mid 60s.
Monday Night: Increasing cloudiness, a spot shower or two after midnight. Low in the mid 40s.
Tuesday: A few scattered showers… otherwise clouds mixing with limited breaks of sun. High in the low 60s.
A front will bring clouds to the region Monday night into Tuesday, and a few showers are likely as well. The front exits Tuesday night, and winds will shift to the NW and usher in some chilly Canadian air. Highs on Wednesday will struggle to reach the 50s… and overnight lows could fall near freezing. That will mean some potential frost concerns both Wednesday night and Thursday night. Something for our friends who may be trying to get an early start to the growing season.
 
The cool pattern will take us to the end of April, and then we’ll cross our fingers that we begin seeing some more spring-like weather as we head into May. Have a great start to your week!

Friday Discussion : Beautiful End to the Work Week

A gorgeous end to the work week, with lots of blue skies and sunshine around the region. Temps climbing into the mid 60s in the valley, and near 60° in the Catskills. As we look into the weekend we’ll see a trough bring clouds and spotty showers into the northeast Saturday afternoon and overnight.
Saturday: Clouds mixing with sunshine, a spot afternoon shower. High in the low 60s.
Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy skies, a spot shower possible. Low in the mid to upper 40s.
Sunday: Morning clouds & spot showers mixed with afternoon sun. High near 70°.
 
Our area will be on the back edge of the trough, and so we’ll be right on the dividing line between mostly cloudy skies, patchy showers with temps in the 50s and low 60s… or… A mix of clouds & sunshine, warm SW winds and temps in the upper 60s and 70s. So our Sunday weather is a bit up in the air, as a slight change in the details could make the difference between a decent day and a 5 star day. Either way, the weather looks unlikely to affect your plans… so we hope you have a wonderful Friday afternoon and weekend!

Thursday Weekend Outlook : Looking Better Every Day

Thursday: Sunshine mixing with increasing clouds. A spot late day shower possible. High near 60°.
 
Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy skies with a spot shower or two possible. Low in the mid 40s.
 
Friday: Partly cloudy skies. High in the low 60s.
Our weather pattern for the next 5 days has the Hudson Valley on the western side of a trough. That’s going to give us some clouds, and maybe the threat of a shower here or there. But with the ridge of high pressure trending further east… warmer temperatures than previously projected may now push into the Hudson Valley. Temps could break into the low 60s on Saturday… and depending on exactly how far east the ridge of high pressure pushes… Sunday highs could climb into the low and mid 70s! This would make for a fairly decent weekend of weather, and particularly a fantastic back half of the weekend.
 
We’ll keep our eyes on the forecast, and share updates. Have a great Thursday!

Wednesday Discussion : Slow Improvements

Wednesday: Mix of clouds and sun, chilly. High in the mid 50s.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy and chilly. Low in the upper 30s.
Thursday: Clouds mixing with sunshine. High near 60°.
After a late season snowfall in the Catskills Monday night, and some flurries on a blustery Tuesday… Wednesday the weather begins to improve. Temps in the afternoon will climb into the mid 50s, and we’ll see less wind with a fair amount of sunshine. As we move toward the end of the week, afternoon highs will gradually rise into the 60s. But as we head into the weekend, we’ll remain on the cool side of a trough. Highs will be a few degrees below normal through the weekend (mid to upper 50s). We don’t have any significant rain expected over the next 5 days, but we will remain cool for late April.
 
Have a great Wednesday!
