Weekend Outlook : Sunny Saturday… Soggy Sunday

Get ready everyone… because a typical autumn weekend across the Hudson Valley, will feature a variety of conditions for the region.

We’ll start off with partly cloudy conditions on Saturday, and seasonably cool temperatures.  Afternoon highs will struggle to hit 60° around the region, but all in all, it will be a rather nice fall day.  Great for some local trunk or treat events that may be going on, or possibly some apple picking.  Whatever you’ve got planned, the weather on Saturday should cooperate nicely.

But we’ve got a storm off to our southwest, and it will make it’s way into our region Saturday night… bringing us a very stormy Sunday.

Futurecast Radar : 8pm Saturday – 8pm Sunday

Scattered showers will become possible Saturday night, and be more and more numerous as dawn approaches on Sunday.  The first half of Sunday appears very rainy and windy.  Anyone with plans during the first half of Sunday will need the rain gear.  The rain should taper off during the afternoon, but possibly not until late.  So as nice of a fall day as Saturday appears to be, Sunday looks to remind us of the stormy potential October brings.

Looking beyond the weekend, we’re going to see a major pattern change in the United States.  It begins with some very cold and snowy conditions out west… which will generate a reflexive ridge in the eastern US.  While a SE flow may keep us from seeing gorgeous fall weather… temps will be warmer than average for much of next week.  It wouldn’t surprise us if we were able to hit 70° one day next week.  Halloween may see the arrival of some stormy weather, we’ll have to monitor the progress of the storm system.  But once we get into November… we anticipate the colder pattern to begin shifting its way into the eastern US.

So we’ll have plenty on our plate as we move into November, where we may actually begin to talk about the word “snow”.  Have a great start to your weekend!
