The Hudson Valley welcomes fall 🍂

Update #465

The last days of summer are now upon us. Come Wednesday, the autumnal equinox will signal the start of a new season 🍂

Following the Northeast’s 2nd most humid summer on record and some unseasonable warmth this September, my guess is that crisp, clear fall days are exactly what you’re ready for.

Those days do look to be coming, especially late in the month!

In the meantime, after some lovely weather today and Monday, there are still some muggy times ahead.

A southerly wind will develop on Tuesday, bringing more clouds and a slight chance for a shower.

On Wednesday, a slow-moving front will approach the region from the west, stalling out over Ohio and western Pennsylvania. This will dredge humid air up into New York — be prepared to turn the AC on once again 🥵

Scattered showers on Wednesday will become more widespread on Thursday. It may rain heavily for a time later in the day or at night before clearing out on Friday morning. A small deviation in the timing could see the gloomy conditions last a little longer.

By later Friday, the weather will have likely improved with a drop in humidity expected. At this point, pleasant conditions look probable for Saturday, potentially continuing on Sunday.

Good news: looking ahead to the week of the 27th, patterns of high pressure look to be in control, bringing cool mornings and comfortable afternoons — classic fall conditions!

Temperatures during the week of the 27th look near to slightly below average before a trend toward milder conditions during the first full week of October. Pretty nice! 😎

Springtime in New Zealand

As the Northern Hemisphere farewells summer, the Southern Hemisphere officially welcomes astronomical spring this week!

Taking advantage of the sunshine this weekend, here are a couple of photos from one of Auckland’s 53 volcanic cones, called Mt Eden.

For Auckland, late September-October days are generally a pleasant 60-70 degrees, pretty similar to fall in the Hudson Valley!

Make it a great week!
