Things will moderate on Wednesday, with some SW winds bringing temps into the mid 30s for afternoon highs, and mid 40s on Thursday… before another arctic blast targets the Hudson Valley Friday into Saturday.
The cold is certainly no minor issue, but the thing that will likely be on everyone’s mind for Wednesday, will be the threat of a significant east coast storm for Sunday into Monday. A strong piece of energy will dive along a trough on Sunday, and very likely head up the east coast for Sunday night into Monday.
At this point, the details are very much up in the air. The only thing we are confident of at this point is a storm along the east coast. Where that storm goes, will mean the difference between a wintry mix, a near miss, or a major snowstorm. As of late Tuesday night, much of the guidance suggests a snow event that mixes with sleet and freezing rain… with a track that is well inland. For now… if you have plans on Sunday afternoon through Monday… you need to pay close attention to the forecast in the next few days… as this system could affect those plans. We’re still 5 days away from the possible event, and the details won’t come into focus for a couple more days.
The 2nd half of January is looking like quite a wild ride. We’ll keep you a step ahead of the weather as we go. Buckle up Hudson Valley! Have a great Wednesday!
