A strong storm system will pass by to our northwest on Friday, and as it moves by, a few rain showers are expected in the Hudson Valley.
Futurecast Radar : 6am to 6pm Friday
A few showers are likely during the morning, before the winds become the primary story for our Friday weather. A Wind Advisory is in effect for Friday afternoon and evening, as WSW winds howl around the back side of the low pressure. Winds could gust at 40 to 50mph at times around the region.
Winds will persist into Saturday morning, but the peak wind gusts are certainly going to be during the afternoon and early evening on Friday… when gusts of 35mph to 50mph are possible. Gusty winds will continue after that, but winds Friday night and Saturday will be less intense (20mph to 35mph).
So make sure you’re prepared for some strong winds Friday afternoon, and possibly a sporadic power outage or two. On the positive side, temps will be around 70° Friday afternoon… so it will be warm, despite the strong wind gusts. We hope you have a wonderful Friday.
