Our gorgeous weather pattern will hold for one more day, before we begin to transition to a very unsettled and humid weather pattern over this weekend.
There’s not much to say about our recent weather, besides gorgeous. Now, as we move into Saturday, we’ll watch a strong upper level system over the Great Lakes begin to generate a strong southerly flow into the Hudson Valley. This strong flow will cause a coastal low pressure system to develop (much like a winter nor’easter). This low pressure will need to be watched closely, because it’s track is critical to whether we see 1 to 2 inches of rain on Saturday night and Sunday… or if we will see lighter rainfall amounts.
So that will keep us busy, determining just how wet our weekend will be. Once the low pressure passes to our north… the Hudson Valley will remain unsettled and humid, with a strong SE flow. The upper level low in the Great Lakes will take its time, and keep our pattern unsettled and stormy well into next week. Anyone concerned about drought in the Hudson Valley… should begin to see those concerns washed away over the next 7 days.
For Friday… try to enjoy the beautiful weather! It’s going to be a gorgeous afternoon!
