Monday Discussion : Blast of Winter on the Way

Rain will exit the Hudson Valley before sunrise on Monday, and by the time the sun comes up… skies will be partly to mostly clear. Winds will shift around to the west/northwest and gusting upward of 20mph in the afternoon, ushering in cooler air late in the day. Monday will still get to the mid and upper 40s for highs, before colder air rushes in late in the day.
 
Monday night will turn sharply colder with temps tumbling into the 20s, but NW winds will create wind chills in the low to mid 20s by Tuesday morning. The core of the cold settles in on Tuesday.
Afternoon highs in the low to mid 30s are expected on Tuesday… more typical of an afternoon in mid January. But those gusty NW winds on Tuesday will give us afternoon wind chills in the low to mid 20s. A frigid day for late November… and along with the blustery cold will be Lake effect snow flurries and snow showers, Monday night into Tuesday.  The bulk of the Lake effect snows are off to our NW… but the winds may be strong enough to carry some of the snow showers to parts of the Hudson Valley.
Something we’ll have to monitor on Tuesday as well. This bitter air mass will linger through Tuesday and Wednesday, before moderating back near normal to end the work week.
 
Some big changes coming to end the month of November. Be sure to bundle up late on Monday, and especially Tuesday morning and on into Wednesday. Have a great start to your week!
