Sunshine mixing with fair weather clouds in the Hudson Valley, as the winter chill howls into the region under those northwest winds. Highs on Saturday are expected to be right about where they are now… in the mid 30s. But it will never feel as warm as the actual temperatures are. The NW winds gusting over 20mph will make sure that ‘real feel’ wind chills hold in the 20s all day. The Catskills will feel even colder, with temps in the 20s feeling more like the teens. So don’t head out without your winter gear today.
Then our Sunday will bring many parts of the region their first snow flakes of the season. A weak Alberta Clipper will swing through the Hudson Valley and northeast, and bring light snow showers to the area by sunrise on Sunday. That could mean some slick spots for anyone heading out early on Sunday. We don’t expect much in the way of accumulation… maybe a dusting to a half inch… but the first possible dusting of the season could cause some icy spots. Make sure you factor this in to your Sunday AM plans.
– Scattered light snow showers develop after midnight
– Dusting to half inch possible by sunrise
– Slick spots possible with temps in upper 20s – low 30s
– Scattered snow showers possible through day on Sunday
Have a great Saturday afternoon everyone!
