  • HV WEEKEND WEATHER UPDATE:

    Saturday will be partly sunny here in the Hudson Valley, with scattered afternoon storms likely.

    I do feel right now, that most of us will get wet at some point during the afternoon hours on Saturday.

    HOWEVER, most of Saturday will be dry in your hometown. So if you are OK with a 30 minute rain delay in the afternoon, I would not change or cancel outdoor plans. Highs will be in the 70s.

    Sunday continues to look totally dry and pleasant, with highs again in the 70s.

  • HV MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WEATHER FORECAST:

    Saturday and Sunday will be warm and humid here in the Hudson Valley. It will be partly sunny both days, with only some widely scattered afternoon showers and storms possible. Highs will be in the 80s both days.

    My advice for Saturday and Sunday is to not change or cancel any outdoor plans. Just keep an eye-to-the-sky in the afternoon, as you may need a brief rain delay. However, most of Saturday and Sunday will be dry.

    For Memorial Day itself on Monday, it now looks like we may have to deal with some rain in the morning, followed by dry weather for Memorial Day afternoon. Highs will be in the 70's.

    Additionally, water temperatures are only near 60F, so if you are heading to the beach this weekend, be prepared for chilly water conditions.

    April Showers Bring May Flowers But First Comes Tree Pollen

    NEW BRUNSWICK:- Spring time ushers in the arrival of grass pollens, the most common summer allergen, but before we get there, there’s the tree season.

    Over the next two weeks, birch and oak pollen will explode, with counts reaching into the thousands of grains per cubic meter air,” says Leonard Bielory, M.D., a specialist in allergy and immunology with the Rutgers Center of Environmental Prediction at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Bielory is also the principal investigator at Rutgers of a U.S. EPA Climate Change and Allergic Airway Disease study.

    According to Bielory, the robust precipitation over the winter and the record-reaching snowfalls will bring a vigorous birch and oak pollen season, set to start the week of April 18 for birch tree pollen, followed by oak tree pollen by May 1.

    Bielory cautions known allergy sufferers not to wait until their allergy symptoms begin. Like most allergists, he instead advises immediate treatment at the start of Spring, as “an ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure.”

    Allergy sufferers can read actual pollen counts by visiting www.nynjpollen.com. They can also correlate their symptoms with weather and air quality (including ozone and particulate matter) using a unique app, Asthma Ally™, which also monitors allergies as it is commonly linked to asthma. The free mobile app is downloadable to iPhone, Droid or Windows-based devices.

    AsthmaAlly™ is an electronic diary on which allergy and asthma sufferers can monitor their health and collect health data that can be sent to their doctors or other health care provider. Another great tool is the new Raphael (Angel of Health) Personal Medical Record app at iTunes.

  • Here is your updated allergy report for the HV. The only problem with our great stretch of weather is that pollen counts will rise! So be ready...

  • Here is your Tuesday morning allergy report for the HV.

  • Here is your Monday morning allergy report for the HV.

  • HV SNOW UPDATE: Please do not cancel plans for Saturday, unless they are outdoors, as roadways will be fine for travel through the day on Saturday.

    With that being said, some spring flakes are possible once again here in the Hudson Valley on Saturday.

    Rain and snow showers will arrive late morning here in the Hudson Valley. Saturday afternoon will feature occasional snow and/or rain showers, that will end in the evening.

    Temperatures will be in the lower 40’s Saturday afternoon, so any snow will not accumulate on the roads. However, a Coating to 1” of snow is possible in some of our communities on colder surfaces.

    IN ADDITION, a few of the models keep most of the activity just south of us here in the Hudson Valley. So there is still a chance we do not see much of any rain or snow.

    Stay close to News12 and News12.com for LIVE weather updates this weekend. I will send another if the forecast changes dramatically. –Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • Here is your Wednesday morning allergy report for the HV.

  • HV SNOW ALERT: Some more snow is headed to parts of the HV tonight, as our fast moving pattern continues.

    Expect mainly light snow to develop after midnight tonight here in the HV.

    Unlike last night, temperatures will be around or below 32F, so some minor accumulations on un-treated roadways are possible very late night.

    Any snow will change to plain rain by 9am on Monday. The rest of Monday will feature rain showers, with highs in the 40s.

    Snow amounts will be as follows:

    For locations South of I-287 you can expect a Coating.

    Between I-287 and I-84, you can expect a Coating to 1”.

    Along and North off I-84, up to 2” of snow is possible.

    Most of the main, treated roads should be fine for travel Monday morning, so I am not expecting major problems for the Monday morning commute.

    However, some scattered school delays could be possible, especially the farther North you go here in the HV.

    Continue to stay close to News12 and news12.com for LIVE weather updates into Monday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV STORM WATCH: Some wild, early April weather is expected here in the HV over the next 24 hours.

    First, a HIGH WIND WARNING is in effect starting at midnight tonight, and lasting until around lunchtime on Sunday.

    Gusts up to 60 mph are possible! This could lead to some scattered downed trees and power lines.

    However, widespread damage is not anticipated.

    Now to the snow: Snow showers (possible mixed with rain) will affect the Hudson Valley from around midnight tonight until 8am Sunday morning.

    A quick Coating to 1” of snow is possible, but mainly on colder surfaces (Up to 2” of snow is possible in the higher terrain up near the I-84 corridor).

    I believe roadways will be mostly wet, so don’t cancel plans for later tonight or Sunday morning.The rest of Sunday will be dry, but windy and cold.

  • Here is your Tuesday morning allergy report for the Hudson Valley

  • Here is your Tuesday morning allergy report for the Hudson Valley. The spring snow washed some of that tree pollen out of the air!

  • HV SNOW ALERT (Updated Saturday 6AM): Models are converging on the track of the storm that brings little to no snow to the Hudson Valley!

    That’s right, the two models I talked about last night that brought us a general Coating to 2” look to be right, as the other two models are lowering their totals.

    So here are my thoughts as of Saturday morning:

    Light snow or flurries will try to develop early in the afternoon on Sunday. There will be no snow accumulation through at least 6pm on Sunday.

    Sunday night, we may get clipped by some light snow/flurries as the storm passes well out to sea. Total snow looks to be a Coating to 2”, with more folks seeing a Coating as compared to 2”.

    At this point, I see little issues Sunday night on the roads here in the Hudson Valley. There may be some flakes around, but at this point, I think its business as usual for Sunday, Sunday night and into the morning commute on Monday.

    Once again, this forecast could change a bit, so stay close to News12 or news12.com over the weekend for updates. I’ll send another update later if the forecast changes dramatically.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: (Updated 6pm on Friday)

    After taking a look at the latest model runs, I think my forecast from this morning is on track.

    Two of the models we look at give Orange County 1” to 4” of snow and give Rockland, Westchester and Putnam Counties 3” to 7” of snow.

    The other two models give us a general Coating to 2” of snow

    So that’s where we stand as of late Friday afternoon. We still have all day Saturday and Saturday night to track this storm.

    Note: My News12 colleague Joe Rao is going for a general 1” to 3”. I can’t argue against that at this point.

    My previous forecast is as follows:

    Spring arrives Sunday here in the HV, but Mother Nature may have other plans!

    Right now, it looks as if snow will develop during the late morning hours on Sunday.

    The snow may mix with rain at times during the day Sunday.

    Temperatures on Sunday will be near 34F, so I feel roadways will just be wet on Sunday through 6pm. I wouldn’t cancel plans for the day on Sunday at this point.

    After 6pm Sunday, any snow will begin to accumulate on the roads, as temperatures drop below freezing. The snow should end by daybreak on Monday.

    RIGHT NOW, up to 6” of snow is possible here in the Hudson Valley. I don’t see much more than 6” of snow at this point, in fact, I see less.

    BUT THAT COULD CHANGE!! The exact track of this storm is still in doubt. A track closer to the coast could bring more snow, but also maybe more mixing with rain. A track farther offshore, and we may not see that much in the way of snow.

    So PLEASE, stay close to News12 and News12.com over the weekend for updates. This is a tricky and low confidence forecast at this point. I will provide updates over the weekend as well. -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • Here is your Thursday morning UPDATED allergy report for the HV.

  • Here is your UPDATE Wednesday morning allergy report for the Hudson Valley.

  • Allergy season is in full swing here in the HV! Here is your Thursday morning allergy report.

  • With the warmer weather, the spring allergy season has gotten off to an early start this year here in the Hudson Valley.

  • HV SNOW UPDATE:

    Light snow will develop around or shortly after midnight here in the Hudson Valley. Temperatures will be below 32F tonight, so any snow will stick.

    The light snow will continue into the morning commute on Friday and end by later in the morning on Friday.

    As you can see from the above map, snowfall totals are expected to be on the light side here in the Hudson Valley.

    While there could be some snow covered roadways for the AM commute on Friday, I am not expecting major problems on the roads.

    Stay close to News12.com for LIVE updates. I will send another update later today, if needed.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: Could this be winter's last gasp? We shall see...Spring will be in the air next week here in the Hudson Valley, but before that, we have a little snow heading our way.

    Right now, snow showers will develop around midnight Thursday night and last until around noon on Friday.

    Accumulations at this point look to be a Coating to 1".

    There could be some snow covered roadways for the morning commute on Friday. But I think the roads should clear by later Friday morning, as temperatures climb above 32F.

    I will have another update in the morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV WINTER WEATHER UPDATE: ( UPDATED AT 1230pm)

    Snow or a rain/snow mix will continue into this evening here in the Hudson Valley.

    Temperatures should be above 32F this afternoon, so I feel main, treated roadways will be OK for travel at least through 5pm or 6pm this evening.

    The snow or rain/snow mix will end this evening, as drizzle or freezing drizzle, between 7pm and 10pm.

    Drizzle or freezing drizzle will then be with us overnight, with any freezing drizzle transitioning to plain rain by the morning commute on Wednesday.

    As you can tell from the above map, snowfall totals will be light.

  • HV WINTRY WEATHER: After our nice mild stretch, we head back to reality as some wintry weather is possible Tuesday afternoon.

    Here’s what I think as of now.

    Light snow, mixed with rain in spots, breaks out around the Hudson Valley between 11am and 2pm Tuesday.

    Snow, possibly mixed with rain, will then continue into Tuesday evening.

    Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s, so I feel the treated, main roads should be OK for travel through 5 or 6pm Tuesday. After that, you may get some accumulations on the roads.

    The snow will end as drizzle or freezing drizzle between 7pm and 10pm Tuesday night, with total snow expected to be between a coating and 2”.

    Drizzle or freezing drizzle will continue overnight Tuesday, with any locations seeing freezing drizzle transitioning to plain rain by the morning commute on Wednesday.

    I will have another update Tuesday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV STORM UPDATE: A wintry mix of snow, ice and rain is headed to the HV!

    Snow will develop in all of our communities by 3pm this afternoon, with snow then continuing into this evening.

    For locations South of I-287:

    The snow will change to plain rain between 7pm and 10pm this evening, as temperatures climb above 32F. There could be a brief period of ice before the changeover to plain rain.

    For locations North of I-287:

    Snow will change to ice between 8pm and 11pm this evening. *Driving will become very dangerous in places being affected by ice*

    The ice will change to plain rain between 10pm and 4am Tuesday morning, as temperatures climb above 32F slowly from south to north.

    By 4am Tuesday, all of our communities here in the lower Hudson Valley will be experiencing plain rain, as temperatures climb above 32F.

    Rain, heavy at times, will affect all of us on Tuesday, with some roadway flooding possible.

    Stay close to News12.com for LIVE updates.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV STORM UPDATE: A wintry mess of snow, ice and rain is headed to the HV!

    Right now, it looks as if snow will develop in the early to mid afternoon on Monday and continue into Monday evening. Initially, temperatures will be cold, so the snow will stick to all surfaces.

    For locations South of I-287:

    Snow will change to plain rain between 7pm and 10pm Monday, with maybe a brief period of ice. Total snow expected South of I-287 before the changeover will be 1” to 2”.

    North of I-287:

    Snow will change to ice between 9pm and Midnight Monday. Total snow expected North of I-287 before the changeover to ice will be 2” to 4” (Extreme Western Orange County could see up to 6” of snow before any changeover)

    North of I-287:

    The ice will then change to plain rain from 10pm Monday night to 6am Tuesday morning. Total ice expected before the changeover will be 1/8” to 1/2”. Driving will become very hazardous Monday night in places being affected by ice.

    By 6am Tuesday morning, plain rain will be affecting all of the HV, as temperatures will be above 32F.

    Rain, heavy at times will then be possible into Tuesday evening. Roadway flooding is definitely possible on Tuesday.

  • HV SNOW ALERT:

    More snow is heading to the Hudson Valley tonight into Wednesday morning.

    Snow will become likely after 7pm this evening here in the Hudson Valley.

    Occasional snow will then be with us overnight. With temperatures in the 20s overnight, the snow will stick to all surfaces.

    The snow threat will gradually end Wednesday morning, and by 10am should be totally done here in the Hudson Valley.

    As you can see from the above map, accumulations will be a general 1" to 3" here in the Hudson Valley.

    Stay close to News12.com for LIVE updates into Wednesday morning.

    -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW UPDATE:

    Light snow will gradually overspread the Hudson Valley from east to west this morning.

    Occasional snow, mainly light, will then continue into this evening.

    The snow will end by midnight tonight.

    As you can see from the above map, snowfall accumulations will be a coating in the far north west, to maybe 3" in Southern and Eastern Westchester County.

    Temperatures will be hovering right around freezing during today, and with the snow staying mainly light, I think main roads should be fine for travel through this afternoon.

    Stay close to News12.com for LIVE updates all day.

    Another round of snow is possible later Tuesday into Tuesday night, with some more light accumulations possible overnight Tuesday. More on that as we head through the next 24 hours.

    -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: A prolonged period of mainly light snow will affect the Hudson Valley early this week. Here’s how it looks right now:

    Light snow will develop during the morning hours on Monday.

    By mid-afternoon Monday, a coating to 2” of snow is possible, with the highest amounts the farther east you go here in the Hudson Valley.

    Snow, mainly light, will then continue into Monday evening, tapering off by midnight; around 1” of additional snow is possible Monday evening.

    This will make the total snow from Monday and Monday evening 1” to 3”, with the highest amounts the farther east you go here in the Hudson Valley.

    Tuesday will feature some flurries/light snow with little to no accumulation during the day.

    A steadier light snow may develop Tuesday night into Wednesday with an additional round of minor accumulations possible.

    This is a tricky forecast, so stay close for updates as we head through the next 72 hours.
    -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: A fast moving area of low pressure is going to brush the Hudson Valley with some rain and snow showers after midnight tonight.

    Expect the activity to start as rain, but as colder air works into the storm, the rain will change to snow showers after 3am.

    Any snow shower activity will be gone by 8am Friday morning.

    Accumulations will range from a coating to 2”, with best chance to see the higher accumulations the farther east you go here in the HV.

    This situation is changing rapidly this afternoon, and if the front sets up closer to the coast, we could see a bit more snow and a bit farther west.

    So please check in with News12 for LIVE updates this evening.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV STORM UPDATE:

    Of course, this storm decided to move farther north and closer to the coast then predicted.

    As a result, double-digit snowfall totals are now possible in many parts of the Hudson Valley by tonight.

    Snow will continue today, heavy at times, with near white out conditions possible with any wind gusts.

    This will remain all snow today, with no mixing expected.

    The snow by end by midnight tonight.

    I think travel will be fine around the Hudson Valley by late morning on Sunday.

    HOWEVER, today I would plan on staying indoors.

    The worst of the weather will continue to be the farther south and east you go here in the Hudson Valley.

    Stay close to News12 and News12.com for LIVE updates into tonight.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • Fast moving, hard-hitting Nor'easter!
    Joe Rao, News 12 Westchester/Hudson Valley

    The storm is moving more rapidly than had been originally been projected. It's currently along the South Carolina coast and by 7 a.m. Saturday it will be at peak intensity near Norfolk, Virginia. The storm will then lateral its energy to a second storm that will develop a couple of hundred miles away to the northeast . . . that second system will then rocket northeast to a position a couple of hundred miles southeast of Cape Cod by Saturday evening. High pressure will build in late tomorrow night into Sunday, bringing copious sunshine for Sunday and Monday.

    Because of the fast movement, it appears that snow could begin falling across the southern parts of the Hudson Valley sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight . . . spreading across the rest of the area during the second half of the overnight.

    The heaviest and steadiest snow will fall from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., possibly winding on down during the afternoon.

    The snow should finally quit most everywhere by late Saturday evening, before midnight. The gradient of the expected snowfall will be unusually tight, with only 1 to 2 inches along and north of I-84 . . . between I-84 south to I-287, amounts will increase from 2 to 6 inches . . . and south of I-287, anywhere from 6 to 9 inches is now expected.

    Another complication will be the northeast winds possibly gusting to 50 m.p.h. or more. That will cause near-blizzard-like conditions at times. In addition, at the late-evening high tide cycle on Saturday along the Sound shore and Hudson River, tides could run as much as 3 to 4 feet above normal, possibly causing minor-to-moderate coastal flooding.

    Thanks to the rapid movement of the storm(s), skies should rapidly clear after midnight Saturday night, and the strong winds will rapidly diminish as well. Sunday and Monday will see sun-filled skies with highs in the mid-to-upper 30's, perhaps reaching the lower 40's by Tuesday.

    -- Joe
  • HV STORM UPDATE:

    As of early Friday afternoon, we have a few changes to the forecast for the Hudson Valley.

    The biggest change right now relates to the timing of the storm. The storm is moving a bit quicker, so now, you can expect snow to develop between 1am and 4am early tomorrow morning.

    In addition, a Dusting to up to 2” of snow is now possible by 8am Saturday.

    Also, the heaviest of the snow will now be with us from late morning on Saturday into Saturday afternoon.

    But with the storm moving quicker, the snow should be done by midnight Saturday night.

    As to accumulations, the models are nudging the storm a bit farther north. I still think we will be spared double-digit snowfall totals, but I am upping my southern range from 4-7” to 4-8”.

    Of course, and I don’t say this lightly, this is a dynamic and evolving situation.

    So stay close to News12 and News12.com for LIVE updates right into tomorrow. Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV STORM UPDATE:

    So just when we thought this storm was going well south and east of the Hudson Valley, our old friend the European model, has now moved the storm a bit farther north.

    So with that in mind, and considering these models have a tendency to move around a bit, I am pretty much standing pat with my forecast snow totals from yesterday.

    Snow will gradually overspread the Hudson Valley Saturday between 4am and 7am from south to north. However, it could take until after 7am for the snow to arrive up near I-84.

    Regardless, the heaviest of the snow and the wind will be with us Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening. The snow will end by dawn on Sunday. This contines to look like an all snow event for us, with temps in the 20's throughout the storm.

    As you can see from the above graphic, I am bumping up forecast snow totals back to where they were yesterday morning.

    However, if we see the storm move farther north, those totals could increase just a bit. If the storm moves father south, they will decrease just a bit.

    In the end, I am still not expecting a crippling storm for the Hudson Valley, as any double-digit snowfall totals should stay to the south of us.

    I will send an update this afternoon when the latest model runs come in. -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck
