9:00AM Sunday Update

Temperatures over the past week has been truly exceptional.
Nation-wide over four-thousand record warm temperatures were set (link), and the Hudson Valley was no exception. Friday's maximum temperatures of 74 in Albany and 73 in Poughkeepsie were the highest temperatures ever recorded at these locations during the month of February. These readings were also warmer than a some July temperatures!


The Heat Subsides

Yesterday's intense thunderstorms signaled a passage of a cold front, and so it is that temperatures have cooled noticeably. The next week looks to feature above average temperatures, but the next two weeks will generally trend cooler. They also look to be fairly calm with perhaps two notable storms. As an early glance, these storms look to be mainly rain with colder air filtering in behind — much like we have seen this weekend. While we could see some snow showers on Friday, there is currently no evidence of any major snowstorms over the next two weeks.

Today in History

This week marks the 7th anniversary of the "Legendary Triple Snowday". The snowstorm impacted Ulster County from February 23rd through 25th, 2010. Kingston received a total of about 10 inches over the three days while parts of the Catskills saw up to four feet of snow! Kingston Schools, along with most of Ulster County were closed from the 23rd through the 25th. Onteora and Rondout schools closed for four days, including the 26th. This likely marked the first triple-cancellation since Hurricane Floyd in 1999, and the first triple-snowday since the Blizzard of 1996.

Extended outlooks offer a general sense of upcoming conditions, but are not specific forecasts.
