After a day featuring cold and blustery winds, Tuesday will see the winds shift out of the southwest once again, allowing the milder air to return to the Hudson Valley.
Sunshine and blue skies will be the primary weather feature for our Tuesday. A mild SW breeze will usher in milder air to the region. Afternoon highs in the low 60s in much of the Hudson Valley, with upper 50s expected in the higher elevations. Tuesday night we’ll see clouds increase overnight, with patchy fog by Wednesday morning. Wednesday’s weather looks more unsettled, as another approaching frontal system will bring the threat of rain showers back to the area.
Futurecast Radar : 8am to 8pm Wednesday
Rain showers and afternoon highs in the upper 50s to low 60s are expected for our Wednesday afternoon. The thing to watch, will be as the front continues moving east, a low pressure will develop along it. That will likely enhance the precipitation Wednesday night, and give us a steady period of rain. As the front moves in, temps will drop into the 30s, and that could result in rain changing to wet snow… especially in the Catskills. We’ll watch closely to see if an April Fools wet snow event is possible… but right now, the potential in the valley looks to be 20% or less.
For today, hopefully you can find a way to enjoy this fine spring day. Have a great Tuesday!
