Sunday Afternoon Discussion : Near Record Raw Day

It’s hard to believe it’s May 30th, when your 1pm conditions are…
Temperatures: 45° to 49°
Wind Chills : 40° to 45°
Winds : NE at 6 to 12mph (gusts to 15mph)
Radar Loop : 11:30am – 1pm
But alas, “it is what it is” as they say. Rain showers have pushed mostly north of the Hudson Valley, with the heaviest rain at this hour being felt in the Catskills, Columbia and Greene counties. A bit of a lull in the radar at this hour of the central Hudson Valley, but even where the radar looks unimpressive, we’re seeing a steady light drizzle/light rain shower. So we don’t expect conditions to dry out any time soon. In fact, when we look at the radar to our south… we see another area of moderate to heavy rain showers developing over New Jersey. Those showers are pressing from south to north, thanks to our developing coastal low pressure system.
Futurecast Radar : 12pm Sunday – 12am Monday
Guidance suggests that the batch of moderate to heavier showers will arrive back in the Hudson Valley by 3 or 4pm… and stick with us through sunset. After sunset, the showers are expected to become scattered and taper off after midnight. Temperatures during that entire time are likely to hold steady in the mid to upper 40s… nearly 30 degrees below average!
Looking at Monday, a few scattered showers and patchy areas of drizzle will linger into the morning hours. But we’re hopeful that the upper level low will push northeastward quick enough to allow sunshine to mix in with the clouds… especially during the afternoon. Monday temperatures will start in the low to mid 50s… but should climb into the low and mid 60s during the afternoon, thanks to peeks of sunshine. Lets cross our fingers, that Monday afternoon will turn out beter acrors the region.
For now, make sure you bundle up and stay warm… on this near record cold afternoon.
