Saturday Afternoon Update : 3:30pm Radar Discussion

Tropical Storm Ophelia’s moisture continues to rotate through the Hudson Valley this afternoon. The dry air from the high pressure to our north has fought valiantly, and reduced the amount of rainfall we’ve seen so far today. The current radar loop shows the moisture swinging NW… well ahead of the center of low pressure, which is back over northern North Carolina.

For the remainder of the afternoon, we expect periods of on and off rain showers, as the broken bands of rain showers continue to push north off the ocean. These showers will diminish in number and intensity this evening, but we will remain cloudy, blustery, chilly and raw. Temps in the 50s, NE winds gusting 20 to 35mph at times, with on and off rain showers.

Tonight we’ll have cloudy skies, with patchy drizzle and spot showers… then on Sunday, rain will redevelop over the region as the remnants of Ophelia slowly push north. Rain showers will move in during the morning hours… and much of the afternoon on Sunday looks to see periods of light to moderate rain.

A damp, chilly and raw first day of Autumn. We hope you’re able to make the best of it.
