Clouds Increase, Spotty Mix Possible Overnight
Mix to Rain Develops Tuesday
High pressure that gave us a seasonably cold start brought sun and
highs from the upper 30s to near 40 during the day. High clouds will
increase overnight with lows ranging from the upper 20s to the low and
mid 30s. There may be a spotty light mix in some areas that could
result in slickening of untreated surfaces.
Tuesday a system advances from the south and west with clouds thickening further and mixed precipitation spreading in from the Catskills through the Hudson Valley, mainly from midday on as highs in the Valley move well into the 30s and most areas get rain. The most likely time for travel issues may be toward and after dark as a wintry mix would have a better chance at sticking to untreated pavements into Tuesday night, mainly over higher terrain and north. Highs Tuesday will range from near freezing in the northern Catskills and Taconics to almost 40 in the lower Hudson Valley .
The rain and mix will taper toward Wednesday morning but linger to a degree as a rain snow mix on higher ground to the north with little if any accumulation as highs range from the 30s to around 40.
Clouds will linger a bit during Thursday with temps pushing to 40 or higher and we should see a bit more sun by Friday as highs move toward the mid 40s. With highs still above average this weekend, an area of rain will pass by to our south with some clouds, mainly Saturday.
