Monday Outlook : Drying Out and Gradually Turning Cooler

After a very soggy Sunday Across the Hudson Valley. The region saw between a half inch and 1 inch of rainfall on average. But as our storm system exits into eastern Canada, the rain has come to an end.
MONDAY : We’ll see mainly cloudy skies, a few sprinkles possible here and there. A few peeks of sun can’t be ruled out, but a mainly cloudy day is expected. Afternoon highs are expected to be in the upper 40s, to near 50°. That’s about 5 degrees above average for this time of year. So our Monday looks a bit unsettled, with a bit of a western breeze. Monday night looks mostly cloudy with a bit of a breeze… lows in the low 30s are expected, right around the freezing mark.
TUESDAY : Another mostly cloudy day with some colder air swinging across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast. Some lake effect snow showers are expected in the usual areas, while here in the Hudson Valley, a stray snow shower or flurry are possible. Highs on Tuesday should be around 40°, maybe some low 40s.
 
The rest of the week looks chilly as well. Highs on Wednesday & Thursday are expected to be in the mid to upper 30s, with a mix of clouds and sunshine. A few flurries, even a snow shower… can’t be ruled out as we go through the week, but nothing that should impact our day to day activities. Looking to next weekend, we expect another warmup, as a storm system should develop in the midwest, and move into the Great Lakes. That should keep us on the mild side of the storm, and as a result… we should expect all rain in the Hudson Valley and even the Catskills.
 
Of course, we’ll monitor the weather as we move through the week, and should something change, we’ll be sure to pass the information along. Otherwise, we hope everyone has a great start to the week!
