A frosty start expected around the Hudson Valley on Saturday morning, with clear skies and calm winds allowing for morning lows to dip all the way down into the mid 30s for most areas. Hopefully any sensitive vegetation makes it through the morning just fine. Sunshine and blue skies will be the weather story on Saturday, with highs climbing back up to right around 60°. A true taste of fall for the region to start the weekend.
But conditions have been rather dry for much of the last 2 months. We saw some steady light rain on Thursday, which helped put a bit of a dent into the dry conditions. Good news, is we’ve got more rain on the way, to help squash any ideas about a drought in the Hudson Valley. Clouds and drizzle will increase Saturday night and be with us through Sunday. Patchy showers and drizzle will be common through Sunday into Sunday night. It will be milder, with temps in the mid and upper 60s, but it will be damp and unsettled Sunday. Something for anyone with outdoor plans Sunday afternoon to keep in mind.
