The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo, Rob Lindenmuth, and Kevin Appleby.
Well, the brief taste of warmth was nice, wasn’t it? A cold front came through, and blustery northwesterly winds continue to lower our temperatures Tuesday evening.
We will ultimately see temperatures bottom out in the upper 20s and lower 30s. In other words, temperatures will be about 20 degrees colder Wednesday morning compared to Tuesday morning.
Wednesday will be a brighter day as high pressure briefly takes control of our weather pattern.
High temperatures will be cool though. It will be a struggle to even reach the mid 40s.
Clouds will thicken later Wednesday ahead of an area of low pressure that will bring a mixed bag of precipitation to our region, particularly in the higher elevations. There will be some slick spots for the Thursday morning commute.
While minor snow accumulations are expected in the higher terrain, a surge of warmer air aloft overnight will support a changeover to sleet and freezing rain with cold air wedged at the surface.
Most of the Hudson Valley will changeover to plain rain by the Thursday morning commute. Most of the moisture will taper after moisture with just a few leftover rain showers here and there.
Temperatures will briefly spike for Friday with a mix of sun and clouds. The weekend looks dry for a change, but temperatures will be substantially lower by Sunday. Morning lows Monday will be in the teens and lower 20s!
Guidance supports somewhat of a temperature moderation as we head towards the middle of the month. Look for some days with above-average temperatures, an average that will fall below 50 by the end of the forecast period.
