Well… how’s THIS for your mid day radar on ‘May 9th? Howling NW winds at 10 to 25mph, gusting over 35mph… with temperatures in the low to mid 30s in the Catskills… upper 30s to low 40s in the Hudson Valley… but wind chills in the mid 20s to mid 30s.
For the afternoon, expect the howling winds to continue, and a few snow flurries or even a snow squall can’t be ruled out in the valley. Where we see a snow squall, expect low visibility and very strong wind gusts. In the Catskills, expect snow showers and squalls through the afternoon, with a coating to an inch or two possible. Afternoon temps won’t move much… highs in the mid 30s for the Catskills, and low to mid 40s in the valley. Reminder… the average high for today in Poughkeepsie is 71 degrees. We’ll be 25 to 35 degrees below average today around the regions… making it feel more like early February. Bundle up, stay warm, and hold onto your hat!
