Thursday’s Weather : Drying Out Slowly

After a fully saturated Wednesday across the valley, with rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches on average… We’ll see the precipitation exit the Hudson Valley around sunrise on Thursday.  The steady rain should taper off before sunrise… but a few leftover showers and areas of drizzle are possible through the Thursday AM commute.  By mid-morning, the majority of the area should be mainly cloudy… but dry.  Clouds will linger through the day… with a few peeks of sun possible before sunset.  Afternoon highs on Thursday should be in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Friday looks to see some breaks of sunshine to close out the work week.  The ridge in the eastern US continues to hold, which means we’ll have a mild day on Friday.  Currently we expect a mix of clouds and sunshine… and highs in the mid 50s.

Next Storm System : Saturday Night / Sunday (mainly rain)

Clouds advance back into the region on Saturday ahead of our next storm system.

Rain is likely to develop by late afternoon or early evening on Saturday.  An upper level low pressure will drop in from Canada, and could bring enough cold air to result in high elevation wet snow, but this variable needs to be monitored in the next 2 days.  Periods of rain are then likely to fall through Saturday night, before tapering off Sunday morning.  The track and strength of the upper level low need to be monitored… but in general, around 1 inch of rain (precipitation) is expected by Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures on Sunday are likely to be in the upper 30s to low 40s… along with the roughly 3/4 to 1 inch of rainfall.  We’ll be monitoring this storm system closely in the next day or two.  Check back for more details in the coming days… otherwise, have a great Thursday!
