Saturday saw temperatures in the mid to upper 70s around the valley. The cold front pulled through with downpours and T-Storms, and behind it some much cooler air has settled into the Hudson Valley.
Monday we’ll see a continuation of the fall preview. Temps in the morning on Monday will be in the low to mid 40s, making for one of the coolest mornings of the season so far. A NW wind at 10 to 20mph will bring reinforcing cold air into the region. So despite a mix of clouds and sunshine, afternoon highs on Monday are likely to only reach the mid 50s, which is about 5 degrees below average for mid October. That will set the stage for a chilly Monday night and Tuesday morning, with partly cloudy skies and a NW breeze will bring lows around 40° in many parts of the valley… with some upper 30s in the Catskills and traditional colder hill towns.
As we head toward mid week, we’ll see winds shift around to the west/southwest, and bring warmer temps to the valley by Tuesday and Wednesday. By midweek, we’ll see highs around 70°, back up above average for this time of year. Then by late week (late Thursday/early Friday), we’ll see another cold front push through ushering in another cold shot for next weekend.
Some ups and downs coming our way over the next week, as we begin to settle in to some autumn weather across the Hudson Valley. Have a great start to your week!
After a weekend of gray skies and patchy drizzle… we should finally begin pushing the low clouds out of the region.
Clouds will mix with increasing sunshine through the day on Monday, as a stubborn upper level low finally begins to exit out to sea. Afternoon highs will climb up near 70 degrees in the valley, which is several degrees above average for this time of year. This should begin a great stretch of weather in the Hudson Valley this week. Tuesday, Wednesday and even Thursday look likely to see partly cloudy skies, with afternoon temps in the 70s. With several days of nice weather lined up, outdoor plans across the Hudson Valley should be in good shape until at least late week… when a cold front may approach for the weekend. But we’ll keep our eye on that as we get closer.
Have a great start to the week!
Saturday was unsettled, but not too terrible in the end… Sunday looks similar in many ways.
A weak low pressure off the South Carolina coast and a weak high pressure off the New England coast are combining to give us a flow off the ocean that is unsettled… and have been keeping us unsettled for days. Low clouds will be with us through the morning on Sunday, and we’ll watch as showers pass by very close to the Hudson Valley
Futurecast Radar : 8am to 8pm Sunday
It looks like the majority of us stay dry on Sunday, with the best chance of a shower or sprinkle being further south and east. Highs in the region should be in the mid 60s due to the unsettled weather around the region. However, on the futurecast you can also see some breaks in the clouds during the afternoon over the Catskills and upper HV. That means our northern and western most areas could see breaks of sun during the afternoon… making for a fairly nice afternoon. In the end… the best bet for our Sunday weather, is that it will look similar in many ways to what we saw on Saturday across the Hudson Valley.
Once we get into the work week, conditions really improve, and sunshine returns to the region… along with temperatures a solid 10 degrees above average. So hopefully everyone can take advantage of some nice weather this week. Have a great Sunday!
