Along with all the warmth of our Saturday, comes a strong southerly wind. Winds tonight will be 10 to 20mph with gusts over 30mph ahead of a cold front that will gradually bring an end to our spring tease.
A squall line will push eastward overnight, and should arrive in the Hudson Valley around sunrise. This line of showers and embedded thunderstorms will be rather broken, but could still contain some strong wind gusts over 50mph, possibly causing some scattered power outages around the region. The timing on this broken line of showers and downpours looks to be between 5am and 7am.
Behind the squall line, the clouds should exit rather quickly, and be replaced by partly to mostly sunny skies. The winds shift out of the west and continue to howl at 10 to 20mph, with gusts over 35mph. The wind direction will shift, but the temps should hold in the mid to upper 50s for most of the daylight hours, it’s not until late afternoon when the temps begin to tumble. So a rather nice Sunday does seem possible, in the wake of all the wind and showers… but lets see how it unfolds.
