Happy Monday everyone! The Hudson Valley is waking up to a general 2 to 4 inches of snow this morning, as our weak and disorganized storm slowly heads out to sea. We’ll have a recap of the small system tonight, but please feel free to post your snow totals in the comments of this post.
Things will quiet down for the next few days, as our Sunday storm gets trapped offshore, bottlenecking the pattern. A tremendous ridge of high pressure over Greenland is blocking the storm from moving away, so it will sit and spin offshore for the next 2 days. The impact on us locally will be minimal. We’ll have clouds, mixing with some breaks of sun periodically this afternoon. Temps will remain cold, in the mid and upper 30s for highs… but we should be warm enough to help melt any icy spots off pavement.
Looking at the rest of the week, clouds and sunshine will be the common story, with a flurry or two possible as that storm lingers off the New England coast. Afternoon highs each day should rise into the mid and upper 30s, with overnight lows in the low to mid 20s. Pretty typical of what we would expect to see this time of season.
We hope everyone gets off to a great start, in this 1st week of 2021. Have a great afternoon!
