Another bitter cold day across the region. Incredibly cold air settled into the valley overnight thanks to calming winds, clear skies, and fresh snow pack. The temperature for the AM commute was a bit deceiving… because it was around 0 degrees in many areas. But just as the sun was rising… winds must have shifted a bit, because overnight low in Pine Bush was -16 degrees! The overnight low was -11 in Montgomery! So temps were near record cold in parts of the region… while locations like Poughkeepsie, “only” fell to -1 degree. So location and topography were critical to your overnight low.
Looking forward, with lots of sunshine and blue skies, Highs will climb toward 20 Friday afternoon. Over the weekend, things will improve further… heading into the 40s by the end of the weekend!
