With the newly designed HVW website, we have some newly found flexibility. The weather on Thursday looks rather tranquil, cold and uneventful. Temperatures will struggle into the upper 20s and near 30° for a high, which is certainly about 10 degrees below average. But with mostly sunny skies, the weather looks like a calm winter day. Well, since we have all of the forecast information presented in a crisp, ‘handsome’ if you will, format… rather than focus on Thursday’s weather in the daily discussion… we can look right ahead to Friday, and you still have everything you need to know for your Thursday.
So… looking to Friday, we’ll have a warm front approaching from the southwest. It doesn’t have a lot of moisture to work with as it pushes into the Northeast, but it could still touch off some snow showers in our area…
You can see on the radar simulation, that the front tries to push some light snow showers into our area. Nothing overly heavy, but we could see some areas get a dusting to an inch in spots. The best chance for accumulating snow, will be the Catskills… where a couple of inches could accumulate.
- Timing : Light snow showers could develop near or shortly after Friday AM commute
- Temps in the upper 20s
- Light dusting of snow possible, could be some slick spots for PM commute
We’ll have to monitor the progress of the front, because there is some guidance that suggests the bulk of the snow shower activity is just off to our north. So the best chance for light snow showers is in the northern Hudson Valley… but it does look like most of the area could see some light snow shower activity.
Looking ahead to the weekend… expect a noticeable warmup. We’ll have a SW flow, and a weak system will push into the area between Saturday afternoon and Sunday. That will bring us scattered rain showers and temps in the 40s. So expect a bit of a moderation and temporary break from the winter weather this weekend.
Have a great Thursday… and thank you for all the support you continue to give HVW!
