Monday Discussion : Signs of Winter?

A mostly cloudy and chilly start to our Monday, as we reach the mid point of the month of November.
A NW wind will usher in a reinforcing shot of chilly air, and bring clouds and scattered flurries to the Catskills. A few of those flurries could make their way into the valley, which would just be a sign of the changing seasons. Highs in the valley should reach the mid to upper 40s… while the Catskills will top out closer to 40°. That will be followed up by a cold night across the region, with overnight lows falling below freezing… with many of us dipping into the upper 20s to near 30° by Tuesday morning. A chilly start to the work week in the HV.
Last night parts of the region saw their first snow flakes of the season, as a weak frontal system pushed through with a period of valley rain showers and high elevation wet snow showers. Most of us just saw a chilly rain with temps in the upper 30s to low 40s… but parts of Delaware, Sullivan, western Ulster and Greene counties, saw a period of wet snow with temps in the mid 30s. A sign that colder and possibly snowier times lie ahead of us.
Have a great Monday!
