It’s not very often that we tell you what to do… but today, we’re going to make an exception. Wednesday will likely start out mostly cloudy with a few spotty rain showers as a weak wave of energy pushes through the western parts of the region. But from mid to late morning on… the day looks outstanding!
Clouds will give way to partly cloudy skies by noon… and mostly sunny skies by mid afternoon. Winds in the morning will be out of the northwest, but the air mass to our west is so warm that our afternoon temperature should still climb into the mid and upper 60s despite the northerly wind. Afternoon highs could hit 70° in parts of the Hudson Valley Wednesday afternoon along with the mostly sunny skies… which would be 10 to 15 degrees above average. The only downside, is that it’s the middle of the week, so many people will be at work and school. But hopefully you can still make some time to enjoy the gorgeous weather.
Moving through the remainder of the week, we’ll have enough high pressure over New England shielding us from any rain showers through Friday.
Futurecast Radar : Thursday 8am – Friday 8am
You can see that the storm system over the midwest struggles to move east, because of the high pressure over the eastern US. This high pressure and upper level ridge should hold any unsettled weather off to our west through Saturday. But by Saturday night and Sunday, it looks like a storm system will reach the east coast, and could bring a needed soaking rain to the Hudson Valley. We’ll keep our eye on things… but for now, have a wonderful Wednesday!
