A tranquil pattern over the northeastern US remains in place as we reach the end of the first full week of January. While the first few days of the month were a bit active, things have quieted down considerably, as we have our chilly and tranquil pattern. We have a storm system in the southeast that will pull out to sea Friday afternoon and evening, leaving the northeast quiet for the weekend. The weekend looks to see lots of sunshine, a few clouds, and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 30s. Overnight lows should fall into the low 20s, and maybe even some upper teens around the region
This pattern carries us straight into the work week next week, as it’s looking increasingly likely that the storm system next week will stay southeast of our region. We’ve been tracking a storm system for the Tuesday/Wednesday time period next week, as it has potential for coming up the coast. For now… it looks like the system stays south of us. But with the overall pattern in place, we’ll likely have to keep our eyes on this all the way into early next week. This pattern favors coastal systems, so any small change in the setup, could result in a big change in impact for the Hudson Valley.
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy through the first week of the year. We’ll be keeping you up to date with any weather impacts on the Hudson Valley. Have a great Friday!
