Not too hot!
Hi there! Ben here, checking in with another week’s worth of weather commentary for the Hudson Valley.
As area residents awaken to a pleasant, if not a little chilly, Sunday morning, check out what’s brewing about 1000 miles to our south:
That’s Tropical Storm Alex, the first storm of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season. It flooded Miami on Saturday but is now racing toward Bermuda. Let it be a reminder that hurricane season is upon us and another unusually active one is expected. The Hudson Valley has been affected by tropical systems in recent summers — it pays to be prepared.
As for the short-term: no hurricanes and no 90 degree heat 😁
For those hoping to avoid as much 90 degree heat as possible before the end of the school, this week is for you! Overall, high temperatures are forecast to range from the mid 70s to lower 80s.
The ridge of high pressure that is delivering us some pretty delightful weather at the moment will give way to more humidity and unsettled weather between Tuesday night and Thursday morning.
The Wednesday evening and overnight period could come with some heavy rain and possible thunderstorm activity.
Things look to clear out for a few days thereafter, including an easing of the humidity, though the weekend forecast is a bit uncertain as a low could track toward the region or miss to the south.
Looking ahead to the week of the 13th, I’m not seeing any signals for unusually hot weather in the Northeast at this time.
🎓 Starting to think about graduation weather? While it’s too early to pinpoint conditions on a particular day, the early indication is for a relatively drier late June pattern in the Northeast 🤞
“Winter” down under
The start to meteorological winter in New Zealand has been… well… I’ll let the pictures do the talking 🌞
The photos were taken around Christchurch’s Port Hills in New Zealand’s South Island this weekend 😎
Hope your week ahead shines just as bright — no matter the weather.
Thank you Ben!
