Brief Overview
Last Updated: 8:00PM Feb. 22nd

8:30PM Saturday

Today's high maxed out at 52 degrees in Poughkeepsie. This was the highest temperature of the year since January 12th when we reached 53. Poughkeepsie reached 60 on January 11th… difficult to remember with all the winter weather in the past few weeks, isn't it?

Today's warmth was due to the simply massive low pressure that brought us rain yesterday. The low, which is now over southeastern Canada is drawing streams of warm southern air and cold Canadian air across the country; today we were in the warm southern stream.

As the low pulls away over the next few days, we will come under increasing influence of the colder northern stream of air. The result will be a steady decrease in temperatures over the coming week. Temperatures will probably be at their coldest around Wednesday with highs in the lower to mid 20's.

Weather-wise… a slight chance of some light snow or rain shower activity during the day tomorrow. Sunday night into Monday morning has been showing potential for some nuisance snowfall. The trends haven't really been consistent with any precipitation for the next 48 hours, but right now, it wouldn't be a complete surprise to see up to an inch or so of snow Sunday night into Monday. We'll see how the picture looks tomorrow.
