Sunday Discussion : Early taste of Winter’s Chill to Start the Week

As we move into mid November, a crisp Canadian air mass has slid into the Northeast. It’s brought our first real taste of early winter temperatures. Highs on Sunday struggled into the low and mid 40s, a good 10° below average for this time of year. The sun will set Sunday evening, and temperatures will quickly tumble near the freezing mark shortly after dark. Temperatures will fall into the 20s before midnight and hold there until after sunrise on Monday. Overnight lows in the mid 20s are expected across the valley… with some colder spots possible, especially in the Catskills.
Then we will start the work week off quiet and cold, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s under a mix of clouds and sunshine. A passing system in southern Canada could spread a few spotty rain or wet snow showers in the Catskills. Otherwise, the weather this week will remain quiet and chilly until Friday, when an approaching trough will bring the chance for showers Friday night into Saturday morning. Something we’ll track as we go through the work week.
 
Be sure to bundle up heading out to work and school Monday morning. We hope everyone has a great start to the week!
