Mother Nature was quite unhappy on Mother’s Day… at least that was the perception with all the light rain showers we saw over parts of the region. Perhaps our northern viewers faired better and saw some breaks of sunshine. But for those of us in the Mid and Lower Hudson Valley… Mother’s Day Sunday was a soggy and cool day.
Of course now that Monday is arriving, and the work week upon us… things look to improve quite nicely…
A look at the futurecast map for 2pm, and you’ll see clouds mixing with breaks of sunshine. The dash lines on the close up indicate partly cloudy skies, with the solid gray color meaning overcast skies. There are a few light sprinkles appearing in the southern Catskills… but the vast majority of the valley will remain dry to start the week.
SW winds will help usher in mild air, along with a bit of humidity. Afternoon highs should be a few degrees on either side of 70s, which should make for a very comfortable day.
Tuesday we’ll see clouds on the advance once more from the north… as another cold front pushes southward, through our area. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely for Tuesday afternoon, but the timing will become clearer. For now… have a great start to your week!
