This GFS model image projects Monday morning low temperatures in the mid 30s around the Hudson Valley. Temps are already in the mid 40s as of early evening, setting the stage for temps to tumble into the 30s overnight. Average lows for this time of year are near 50° in Poughkeepsie, so temps 10° to 15° below average are expected. Temps on Monday will rebound into the mid 60s, before dropping back into the 30s at night once more. Temps should begin to rebound near normal by mid week. A sign that autumn… which begins on Tuesday… is on its way.

  1. This has been my first time seeing frost before the equinox. It is strange to have frost in summer. Likewise, this has been the shortest summer, last snow, freeze frost was well into May. Only June July and August are free of frost (just 3 months). And through it all we had a mild winter and very little snow. What a strange year 2020 has been.
