Thursday Discussion – Clouds and Spotty Showers

After a dark and stormy night, that likely had many pets heading under the bed… the thunderstorm activity has moved east of the Hudson Valley for our Thursday. While the storms have cleared out, the progression of the front has stalled considerably, and the result is the clouds and scattered showers associated with the front, still lingering around the region this morning. While earlier guidance suggested the front would clear more quickly… Mother Nature had different ideas. The end result for our Thursday will be lots of clouds, with very limited breaks of sun… and the threat of scattered rain showers through this evening. The further south and east you are in the Hudson Valley (Putnam, Westchester, much of Dutchess County)… you will have the highest potential for scattered rain showers through the day on Thursday.
Thursday AM radar
Looking at the current radar, you can see the steady rain showers over NJ and Long Island. But as these push northeast, a few scattered showers are likely to spread into the Hudson Valley as well. Temps today will likely hold in the upper 60s and low 70s. Tonight, the clouds and showers will finally push east… and skies should clear out after midnight tonight. That should set the stage for a beautiful Friday… with mostly sunny skies, highs in the low to mid 70s. The weekend looks nice as well, with a good deal of sun, and afternoon highs in the 70s.
 
We hope you have a great Thursday!
