The Hudson Valley is currently on the edge of the influence of an upper level low pressure over the southeast US. That is translating into low clouds, patchy fog and spotty drizzle around the region. The unsettled and damp conditions are keeping temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s as of mid day on Wednesday.
However, a building ridge of high pressure over eastern Canada is trying to push into New England, which should begin to push the clouds and patchy drizzle south of our region. This should mean gradually improving conditions this afternoon around the area. Clouds should begin to mix with breaks of sun, especially in the northern and eastern parts of the area. With the expected breaks of sun, would come temperatures climbing near 70°. However if the clouds persist through the afternoon, temps would remain in the low to mid 60s.
The good news is that by Thursday, the high pressure should win out, and we should see partly cloudy skies with temperatures climbing into the low 70s. A potentially beautiful (fingers crossed) day on Thursday… and those nice conditions could extend into Friday. As far as the weekend is concerned, we’ll have to keep tabs on the situation as it develops. The high pressure ridge will lift into northeast Canada, and we could see the clouds move back into the region. Updated forecast ideas can be found on our website www.hudsonvalleyweather.com
So don’t let the gray get you down, we’ll try and shake off these clouds this afternoon. We hope everyone has a great Wednesday afternoon.
