The Hudson Valley region has been unusually dry over the past 2 months. As a result, the portion of the valley experiencing “abnormally dry” conditions is expanding. Hopefully some much needed rainfall on Monday will help change that. We expect rain showers to move into the valley after midnight Sunday night, and continue through the morning on Monday. We could dry out for a few hours Monday afternoon, before the frontal boundary swings through late in the day… which could trigger some scattered showers and T-Storms. The combined rainfall from the various rounds of rain could exceed 1 inch, and that would be great for the increasing drought conditions.
Once the storm exits on Tuesday, the heat will build across the Hudson Valley. We’re looking at a multi-day stretch of above normal temperatures, with daily highs expected near or above 90°. The heat peaks on Wednesday most likely, with highs possibly in the mid 90s. But don’t expect a major cool down on Thursday, as high temps will likely be near 90° through the work week.
Have a great start to your week!
