Friday Afternoon Discussion : Warm Weekend Start

Summer is the story for our first Friday of June in the Hudson Valley.  A warm SW flow has pulled afternoon temperatures into the low 80s where the sunshine has made an appearance, and mid to upper 70s where the clouds have been more stubborn.  Dew points are in the 60s to around 70°, giving us elevated humidity levels.  That’s setting the stage for a few scattered showers, and possibly a thunderstorm this afternoon.  The radar is mainly quiet at this hour, and should stay rather quiet for the most part this afternoon.  But a stray shower or storm can’t be ruled out with this warm and humid air mass.
 
Saturday we’ll see clouds and humidity to start the day, as temps climb into the 80s once again.  But a cold front will push through with minimal notice.  Winds will shift, and less humid air will push in.  That will give us a beautiful Sunday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and very low humidity.  That air mass will carry us into the work week, with some rather nice weather.
 
Hope everyone has a great afternoon, and a nice start to the weekend!
