After a week or two of ups and downs, with ice and snow and even some rain… maybe you can take some solace to know that for at least Friday, things will be ‘normal’ for a day. Ok, we’re being a little dramatic… but the truth is that Friday will look very much like what a day this time of year would be expected to look like. The average high for the day in Poughkeepsie is 41°, and we’ll be near that Friday afternoon. The skies should be partly to mostly sunny, giving us a nice finish to the work week.
Then on Saturday, we’ll track a storm system approaching for Saturday night into Sunday. Unlike the past few storms that saw a snow to ice transition… this one will be almost entirely rain. It could briefly start out as freezing rain in the colder valleys. However, the warmer air will win the battle quickly, and the entire Hudson Valley will turn to rain by late Saturday night. The rain will last with us until Sunday, and when the rain exits Sunday afternoon… strong winds will howl, and usher in a return to the cold air to start the work week.
So the 1st half of the weekend looks decent, the 2nd half of the weekend looks stormy. So we’ll be busy through the weekend timing the arrival of the rain. For now, we hope you have a great Friday! TGIF!!
