Thursday Discussion: Raw Rude Awakening

A dramatic turn of weather events today, as we transition from Wednesday’s record high of 88 degrees in Poughkeepsie… to waking up with scattered showers and temps in the upper 40s.  In fact, that’s where the temps will hold most of the day today, thanks to a NE wind helping to funnel down cool, Canadian air.  Temps likely will hold in the upper 40s to low 50s… only rising slightly after sunset, and then only into the mid and upper 50s.  

The rain showers will be with us most of the day as well.  The morning radar shows a band of light scattered rain showers moving west to east, and expected to linger over the Hudson Valley for much of the daytime hours.  In just 24 hours, we go from August to November, just like that.  Make sure to grab the rain gear, and a coat to keep the chill away.  It’s going to be a raw one.  Have a great Thursday!

  1. Huh. I have been doing work outside this AM and it is amazing. My burned brown lawn literally just popped back to being green. The cracks in the super-dry soil are filling in. We desperately need the rain, more than we’ll get, and bing at 89 on October 2 really isn’t normal. So, today is neither raw, or a shock, or dreary…as you state, it’s actually fantastic and I personally hope it rains for days on end. That’s just me.

  2. Love for the Canadian cool air, stay in Canada, some of that warm Southern air come on up, not ready cold damp dreary days depressing
