— HVW Commentary —
Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s and low 30s overnight, with a biting NW wind. That will create wind chills in the low to mid 20s… even some wind chill values in the TEENS in the Catskills.
This will bring the growing season to an end across the majority of the valley. The reason northern, high elevation parts of the valley are not under an advisory (Delaware, Sullivan, W. Ulster & Greene, E. Dutchess & Columbia counties)… is because those locations have already experienced a freeze previously.
