Winter sent us a nasty reminder on Monday, that despite the calendar indicating that we are now in spring, Mother Nature can always deliver a surprise or two. A wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain spread across the Hudson Valley, providing a wide variety of conditions depending on your location and elevation. We’ll pull together the details as soon as we can, but the weather played a rather small role in everyone’s plans… thanks to our new found social distancing. Even so… reports of car accidents were rather numerous during a burst of heavier sleet and snow Monday afternoon.
But with a new day, brings new weather… and a much nicer day. Sunshine will return to the region, with a persistent north wind. That will keep temperatures from jumping too much, likely holding in the 40s for afternoon highs. The wind will add a bit of a chill for sure. Then another storm will approach for Wednesday… but this storm appears poised to stay further south, and likely will just be some scattered rain and wet snow showers. We’ll monitor the situation, but the event looks much less impressive than our Monday event.
Then we’ll clear out again on Thursday… before another frontal boundary approaches for Friday and Saturday. The exact position of the boundary is still in doubt. So the early guidance was for rain showers on Friday and Saturday… and that is still possible. However, the boundary could be pressed further south, and that could give us nicer weather for Friday and Saturday. Another feature we’ll be monitoring.
For now however… please take care of yourselves, and stay healthy and safe. Thank you for your continued support!
