  • For the upcoming holiday weekend, our attention will then turn to newly formed Tropical Storm Hermine that is currently in the central Gulf of Mexico and is now scheduled to move northeast and impact northern Florida Thursday night into Friday. This tropical  system will then move up along the southeast coast during Friday and by Saturday morning is expected to be along the North Carolina coast.  Beyond Saturday, this system's future movements are somewhat uncertain, but unfortunately it could come close enough to the Hudson Valley on Sunday and Monday to bring clouds and a risk of gusty winds and some rain or showers. Check out the projected storm track from the National Hurricane Center in Miami:


    Saturday looks okay with mainly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70's, but then question marks abound for Sunday and Monday depending on the future movement of Hermine. Of course, after the holiday, skies will clear and it will turn very warm and humid again for Tuesday and Wednesday. -- Joe Rao





  • HERMINE AND THE HV: So the big question is will Tropical System Hermine affect our weather in the HV this weekend.

    Here are my thoughts as of Thursday morning.

    First off, Saturday...Saturday should be fine here in the Hudson Valley. I am seeing sunshine and clouds, with highs in the upper 70s. No rain or high wind is expected into early Saturday night.

    If we do feel the affect of Hermine, those affects would come Sunday into Labor Day on Monday.

    However, the current model runs continue to keep the center of Hermine well offshore. So all is not lost for Sunday and Monday here in the Hudson Valley. There is still a good chance we will stay dry, with only a brisk breeze to deal with Sunday and Monday. So I wouldn't cancel plans outdoors just yet.

    However, no matter where Hermine tracks HIGH SURF and DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS will affect the NJ and LI Atlantic Ocean beaches. So keep that in mind, if you are planning a beach trip this weekend. Long Island Sound beaches will not be affected as much.

    I will have another update Friday morning. Stay tuned.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • Looking at a compromise between the afternoon runs of both the GFS and European guidance models, it appears that Tropical Cyclone Hermine will be just inland from the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Saturday morning.  But as the storm moves northeast and our over the open waters of the Atlantic, it will begin to slow down as it runs into a blocking area of high pressure.  In fact . . . when it reaches a point roughly 150 nautical miles SSE of NYC on Sunday morning, Hermine could grind to an almost complete halt for 24-hours or more. 

    This type of path would result in a long period of tidal flooding and
    beach erosion from the Outer Banks of North Carolina northeast to Cape
    Cod.
    Keep in mind, that we have a new moon and a solar eclipse today
    (for Africa), thus for the next few days tides are going to run
    higher-than-normal due to this astronomical alignment.


    In any case, red flags will likely remain raised along all ocean
    beaches because of the high probability of rip currents and a heavy
    undertow.

    As for the local weather . . . locales along and near
    the coast could see considerable cloud cover, gusty winds and some
    rain, especially Sunday into Monday .
    . . but moving inland to the north
    and west, there could be less cloud cover .
    . . perhaps some Sun, and
    little, if any precipitation.

    Included here is the latest projected path of Hermine from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.


    As we are still 3 or 4 days away
    before we receive the most significant effect from this tropical
    cyclone, there are still uncertainties regarding Hermine's track, so we
    will need to continue to monitor her future strength and movements in
    the days to come. -- Joe Rao



  • HERMINE AND THE HV: Here is my Friday afternoon update: (UPDATED 12PM FRIDAY)

    Saturday: No worries here in the Hudson Valley. Sunshine will mix with clouds. It will remain dry with highs in the 70's. The wind will be from the East at 10-15 mph.

    Sunday: Conditions now look dry here in the Hudson valley at least until later Sunday afternoon. There is a chance we see no rain on Sunday here in the Hudson Valley. The wind will pick up from a North East direction running 10-30 mph, with the higher speeds closer to the coast.

    Labor Day: Scattered showers are possible here in the Hudson Valley, but nothing too heavy is expected at this time. The wind will stay in the 10 to 30 mph range on Monday, with higher gusts possible near the coast.

    For me, the biggest impact for us from this storm will be the potential for MODERATE TO MAJOR TIDAL FLOODING along Westchester's Sound Shore on Sunday and Labor Day.

    A possible STORM SURGE of 3 to 5 feet is possible in Western Long Island Sound. So those of you along the Sound Shore will have to greatest impact from Hermine.

    On the Hudson River, the storm surge will be much less, running up to 1 foot. This should cause minimal issues for communities along the Hudson River.

    In addition, the Atlantic Ocean beaches of NJ and LI will experience DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS and HIGH SURF all weekend long.

    I will send another update Saturday morning. Stay tuned.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • 5-DAY RAINFALL OUTLOOK (FRIDAY THRU WEDNESDAY)

  • As you can see from the accompanying rainfall map from NOAA's Weather Prediction Center, the lion's share of Hermein's rains will fall south of the Hudson Valley.  Perhaps up to an inch of rain could fall south of Interstate 287 in lower Westchester; much lighter amounts to the north and west.

    -- Joe Rao 

  • HERMINE & THE HV: Here is my Saturday update. A TROPICAL STORM WATCH remains in effect for Southern Westchester County.

    Today: No worries. It will be partly sunny, dry and pleasant with highs in the 70s. The wind today will be from the North East at 10-15 mph.

    Sunday: Really no worries either. While there could be a light shower towards sundown, most if not all of Sunday will be dry here in the Hudson Valley. It will be partly sunny, with highs in the 70’s. Now the wind will pick up on Sunday. It will be North East at 15-25 mph with higher gusts. The fastest wind will be closest to the coast.

    Sunday Night & Labor Day: Conditions will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. I still do not see a lot of rain with this system here in the Hudson Valley, so flooding from rain will NOT be a problem for us. It will turn rather windy however. The wind will be out of the North East at 15-35 mph, with higher gusts! The fastest wind will be closest to the coast.

    I still see the biggest problem for us to be the MODERATE TO MAJOR TIDAL FLOODING along Westchester’s Sound Shore. A STORM SURGE of 3 to 5 feet is possible Sunday into Monday and possibly lasting into Tuesday! This WILL CAUSE FLOODING for many of our Sound Shore Communities.

    For those of along the Hudson River, a storm surge up to 1 foot is possible. Problems for our Hudson River communities will be minimal with this storm.

    For those thinking of heading to the Atlantic Ocean, DANGEROUS RIP CURRENT and HIGH SURF will be common all weekend long.

    Unless the forecast changes, I send another update Sunday morning. I will also be LIVE on News12 Sunday morning tracking Hermine for the Hudson Valley. -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck


  • Here is my latest projection regarding the future path of Tropical
    Storm Hermine based on a consensus between the overnight runs of the GFS and
    European models.


    Hermine will continue to move to the northeast and should reach a
    position approximately 300 miles southeast of the Tri-State area by 8 a,m.
    on
    Sunday morning.
      It will be about this time that the tropical cyclone will begin
    to be affected by a large, blocking zone of high pressure over northern New
    England and the Canadian Maritimes.
    Hermein will have a difficult time pushing
    into that high pressure zone and as a result it will be forced to move on an
    almost due northerly trajectory, while also moving much more slowly.
     Hermein
    will likely not move on a straight path, but from Sunday through Wednesday, it
    more likely will "wobble" .
    . . drifting westward, then eastward. It appears
    that the cyclone will be closest to the Tri-State area early on Wednesday, when
    it could get as close as approximately 150 miles to the
    east-southeast.
      

    Unfortunately . . . this type of path would result in a long period
    of moderate to major tidal flooding and beach erosion along the ocean coastlines
    running from the Outer Banks of North Carolina northeast to Cape Cod.
    Keep in
    mind, that we just had a new moon and a solar eclipse on Friday (over Africa),
    so tides are going to run higher-than-normal through Monday thanks to due this
    recent astronomical alignment.

    In any case, red flags will likely remain raised along all ocean
    beaches through the holiday because of the high probability of rip currents and
    a heavy undertow.

    Using the GFS/European consensus, Hermine should peak in
    intensity early Monday morning; I believe top sustained winds near the center of
    the storm will be in the 80 to 100 m.
    p.h. range.  The cyclone should then begin
    to gradually weaken.
     

    HERMEIN'S EFFECTS ON THE HUDSON VALLEY: 

    A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Sound shore and lower
    Westchester south of Interstate 287.

    From now . . . through Sunday on into Sunday evening our skies will
    be considerably cloudy.
      We might see some pokes or intervals of hazy Sun on
    Sunday.
      As was the case on Saturday, the farther north and west you go, the
    thinner the cloud cover and the more likely you'll be able to see some Sun; the
    farther south and east, the thicker and more extensive the cloud cover will be.

    Lows tonight will range from the low 50's for the NW Valleys to the lower 60's
    for Urban and coastal areas.
    Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 70's.

    After midnight Sunday night on through midday on Monday, look for some
    showers and perhaps even an isolated thunderstorm.
      The heaviest precipitation
    is expected south of I-287, where amounts will be on the order of 0.
    10 to
    0.
    25-inch.  North of I-287, amounts will probably be less than 0.10-inch and for
    parts of Putnam and Orange County, there is a chance that no precipitation will
    fall at all.
      During Monday afternoon, any showers will diminish and end with
    clouds lingering the rest of the day.
    It will be noticeably more humid with
    highs again in the low to mid 70's.

    Winds will NNE 5-10 m.p.h tonight . . . NNE 15-20 m.p.h. on Sunday with gusts to 30 m.p.h.  . . 
    NNE 15-25 m.p.h. with gusts of 35 m.p.h. Sunday night and NNE 20-25 m.p.h. with
    gusts perhaps exceeding 40 m.
    p.h. on Monday. The strongest winds will likely be
    experienced along the Sound shore.


     TIDAL FLOODING: 
    On Sunday and Monday, at each high tide cycle along the Hudson River and the 
    Sound shore, water levels are expected to rise to 2 to possibly 4-feet above normal, 
    creating significant tidal flooding issues. Along the Sound shore, high tides on Sunday 
    and Monday will come between 2 and 3 a.m. and 2 and 3 p.m.  

    Along the Hudson River, high tides on Sunday and Monday will come between 
    1 and 2 a.m. and 1 and 2 p.m.

    IN A NUTSHELL: A rather cloudy . . . windy and at times somewhat damp period of 
    weather from now through Labor Day, with significant coastal flooding likely along the 
    Sound shore and Hudson River, particularly around the time of high tide.

    The News 12 Weather Team will continue to monitor Hermine's future strength and movements through the Holiday Weekend.

  • HERMINE & THE HV: Here is my Sunday morning update. (UPDATED 11AM, mainly to lower storm surge potential)

    Today: No worries here in the Hudson Valley. Sunshine will mix with some extra afternoon clouds. While the wind will pick up a bit later today, wind speeds will stay under 25 mph today here in the Hudson Valley. It will stay dry today, with highs in the 70's.

    Tonight & Labor Day: The wind will increase here in the Hudson Valley tonight into Labor Day on Monday. Near the coast, the wind will be North East at 20 to 30 mph with potential gusts up to 50 mph! Away from the coast, the wind will be north east at 15 to 25 mph with potential gusts up to 40 mph. While a passing shower is possible, most of tonight and Labor Day will be dry here in the Hudson Valley.

    The biggest concerning for us continues to be the threat for MODERATE TIDAL FLOODING along Westchester's Sound Shore. The threat will begin with TONIGHT'S high tide cycle, with high tide along the Sound Shore just after 2AM Tonight. A STORM SURGE of 1 to 3 feet is possible.

    For our Hudson River communities, a STORM SURGE of up to 1 foot is possible, which will bring only a few minor issues.

    I am LIVE on News12 into this afternoon tracking Hermine and will be LIVE tomorrow morning starting at 5AM on News12.

    I will post another update here Monday morning, or sooner, if the forecast changes.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HERMINE & THE HV: Here is my Labor Day update.

    Hermine has stalled too far east to provide the Hudson Valley with major impacts.

    Today will be a dry Labor Day here in the Hudson Valley. Sunshine will mix with clouds, with more clouds the farther south and east you go. The wind will pick up a bit from a northerly direction. Wind speeds will be 10 mph in Western Orange County to 25 mph in Eastern Westchester County. Our Sound shore communities may see a gust to 40 mph. High temperatures today will reach into the lower 80s.

    Tonight and Tuesday will feature more of the same. It will partly cloudy, breezy and dry, with sustained wind speeds staying under 25 mph.

    For our Sound Shore Communities only some MINOR TIDAL FLOODING is now possible with today and tonight's high tide cycle. A storm surge to 1 to 2 feet is possible, which will have minimal impacts for the Sound Shore.

    Hudson River communities will have no problems as any surge will stay under 1 foot.

    Continue to stay close to News12.com for LIVE weather updates and have a Happy Labor Day.

    OWN OF RAMAPO CHIEF BUILDING INSPECTOR FACES CORRUPTION CHARGES; COUNTS INCLUDE GRAND LARCENY, TAMPERING WITH PUBLIC RECORDS, OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT

    Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe today announced the filing of criminal charges against the Town of Ramapo Director of Building, Planning and Zoning for allegedly stealing over $100,000 in a yearlong scheme to falsify building permit applications as the result of an investigation conducted by the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office Special Investigations Unit.

    Anthony Mallia (DOB 06/14/64) of 5 Biret Drive, Airmont, New York is charged with: • One count of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class "C" Felony • 33 counts of Tampering with Public Records in the First Degree, class “D" Felonies • 33 counts of Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, class “E” Felonies • 33 counts of Offering a False Instrument for Filing, class “E” Felonies • One count of Official Misconduct, a class "A" Misdemeanor

    “This case goes to the very heart of corruption,” said District Attorney Zugibe. “According to the charges, the defendant developed an elaborate scheme to steal taxpayer money rather than to ensure public safety and compliance. His breach of the people's trust comes at a time when the residents of Ramapo are demanding honesty from their leaders. Such self-serving criminal behavior severely undermines public confidence in government and will not be tolerated.” Rockland County Executive Ed Day said, “What happens in Ramapo affects all of Rockland. When one official responsible for carrying out the taxpayer’s business applies the rules unfairly, we all suffer. There is one set of rules, one set of laws that everyone is expected to follow.”

    District Attorney Zugibe said that, according to the criminal complaint, Mallia was grossly undercharging contractors for building permit applications for new residential construction projects. In the Town of Ramapo building permit fees are determined by “cost of construction.” Throughout 2015, the defendant allegedly approved building permit applications which greatly underestimated the actual cost of construction. The complaint alleges that Mallia stole more than $100,000 through his scheme, which involved altering and falsely recording the cost of construction for 33 building permit applications, thereby reducing the collection of fees legally owed to the Town of Ramapo. The defendant is accused of filing the phony records with Ramapo’s Building, Planning and Zoning Department.

    The defendant is charged with the theft of the fees, in addition to various charges related to the falsification of official town records. It should be noted that an indictment is merely an accusation and that the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty

    OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY • ROCKLAND COUNTY Thomas P. Zugibe, District Attorney www.RocklandCountyDA.com Mallia was arrested Thursday evening, September 15, 2016, outside of Ramapo Town Hall. According to District Attorney Zugibe, the investigation is continuing. Mallia’s arraignment is pending. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in state prison. Executive Assistant District Attorney Richard Kennison Moran is prosecuting the case. Note to Editors: Press release e-version posted on RocklandCountyDA.com

  • Hv WEEKEND WEATHER UPDATE: Currently, the weekend DOES NOT look like a washout here in the Hudson Valley.

    With that said, it not going to be a very nice weekend either. I expect lots of clouds both Saturday and Sunday, with brisk and cool conditions. Highs will be in the 60s both weekend days.

    Now, there will be some drops to dodge this weekend, but right now the rain looks mainly light, and I expect a lot of dry periods on both Saturday and Sunday.

    So again, maybe not perfect conditions Saturday and Sunday, but I think you will be able to find some dry times to get outdoors. I'll send another update on Friday.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV WEEKEND WEATHER UPDATE: Here are my thoughts as of Friday morning for your weekend weather here in the Hudson Valley.

    Saturday:
    Saturday will be cloudy, breezy and cool, with light rain and drizzle possible. The rain on Saturday will be scattered, so while there will be some drops around, there will also be a lot of dry periods throughout the day. So not a total washout, but damp. Highs will be in the lower 60's.

    Sunday:
    Sunday will be mostly cloudy, with only a few widely scattered showers possible. Right now, most of Sunday actually looks dry here in the Hudson Valley. Sunday does look a bit drier than Saturday at this point. Highs will be in the middle 60's.

  • The weekend outlook is going to rely on the future movements of Hurricane Matthew down over the Caribbean. Right now, the future storm track appears to be offshore relative to our local area, with the GFS and Canadian models sweeping it rather close to us . . . missing us by only 100 to 150 miles late Saturday night into early Sunday morning . . . but the European model is slower and much farther south and east with Matthew's track relative to our area. Taking a compromise between the three models, I look for the best chance of any unsettled/wet/windy weather locally from late Saturday, through Saturday night on into early Sunday. For what its worth, the European has been the most consistent of the three models, which loans some hope that Matthew's effects will be minimal. But if the GFS and Canadian models are right, we could be in line for a period of strong winds and very heavy rainfall during the later part of Saturday through the first part of Sunday. Still too close to call, but certainly worth monitoring!
  • HURRICANE MATTHEW AND THE HUDSON VALLEY:

    It now looks like Matthew will play NO ROLE in our weather this weekend.

    A cold front is moving a bit quicker than it looked earlier this week. This cold front could bring a shower to the Hudson Valley Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Because this front is moving quicker, it will act as a "blocker" and keep Matthew well to our south and east. Currently, Sunday looks totally dry now!

    So if you have outdoors plans this weekend I would not change or cancel those plans at this point. I will update this forecast Thursday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • WATCH A NASA ROCKET LAUNCH THIS EVENING! -- As some of you may already be aware, tonight there is going to be an Antares rocket launched from Wallops Island, Virginia by Orbital ATK.

    This is a resupply mission (OA-5) to the International Space Station. This attempt . . . the first such mission since an Antares rocket crashed back onto the Wallops launch pad shortly after liftoff nearly two years ago . . . is set to be launched at 7:40 p.m. EDT. There is a five minute launch window.

    Unlike resupply missions by the Space Shuttle which were launched from Cape Canaveral, northeast along the Atlantic Seaboard, tonight's launch will be launched in a southeast direction away from the Mid-Atlantic Coast. The rocket launch should be visible from South Carolina up to southern and central New England including our own Tri-State Area, provided skies are clear and prospective observers have a clear and unobstructed view of the south-southeast horizon. Generally speaking, the rocket should become visible locally about 111 seconds after it leaves the launch pad at Wallops Island.

    I have included a link below, which will help guide you in observing the launch.

    Skies are expected to be clear, so good visibility is expected.

    If there is a technical problem that keeps the rocket on the pad, another attempt will be made Tuesday night at approximately 7:17 p.m. EDT

  • HV SNOW ALERT: A quick burst of mainly light snow is likely after midnight.

    The snow will gradually change to rain in most spots before ending later Monday morning. Temperatures will hover in the lower to middle 30’s, so treated roadways should be just wet.

    However, some roadways in your local community could be snow covered come daybreak Monday.

    Accumulations will range from a Coating to 1” here in the Hudson Valley, with the best chance to see 1” the farther north and west you go. Temperatures come Monday afternoon will reach into the lower 40s.

    While I am not expecting major problems Monday morning, a few school districts could delay their openings. -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: (UPDATED 12:00PM) Forecast from this morning is on track according to the latest computer models this afternoon.

    Here is what you can expect tonight in your hometown:

    For those living in Westchester & Rockland Counties:
    Snow, or a mix of snow and rain, will develop around 7pm this evening. The snow or mix will quickly change to plain rain.

    Snow accumulations in Westchester and Rockland Counties should be around a Coating.

    For those living in Orange and Putnam Counties:
    Snow will develop between 7pm and 9pm this evening. The snow will not change to rain until after midnight.

    Snow accumulations in Orange and Putnam Counties will be a Coating to 2", with possible 3" amounts in elevations over 800' in Orange County.

    By Wednesday morning, only some leftover drizzle is possible, with temperatures above freezing Hudson Valley wide.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • UPDATED 7:30AM on Sunday

    HV WINTER WEATHER UPDATE: A wintry mess of snow and rain is headed to the Hudson Valley for Sunday night and Monday.

    Here is what you can expect:


    SOUTHERN ROCKLAND & SOUTHERN WESTCHESTER (South of I-287)

    Light snow/flurries will break out around 4pm. However, any snow will stay very light; Accumulations of snow through midnight will be under 1”.

    THEREFORE DO NOT CHANGE PLANS FOR TODAY! Travel should be fine into the evening.

    After midnight, the snow will turn a bit heavier. However, by 6am Monday morning most locations South of I-287 will be experiencing plain rain.

    Total snow accumulations will be a Coating to 1”.

    So while there could be some scattered delayed opening, most locations South of I-287 will have a business as usual Monday.




    NORTHERN ROCKLAND, NORTHERN WESTCHESTER, ORANGE & PUTNAM (North of I-287)

    Light snow/flurries will break out around 4pm. However, any snow will stay very light; Accumulations of snow through midnight will be under 1”.

    THEREFORE DO NOT CHANGE PLANS FOR TODAY! Travel should be fine into the evening.

    After midnight, the snow will turn a bit heavier. The snow will change to rain from south to north between 6am and 10am Monday morning.

    Total snow accumulations will be 1” to 4”, with the best chance to see 4" in Northern and Western Orange County.

    I would definitely plan for delayed openings on Monday morning north of I-287. In addition, some scattered school closings will also be possible. -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: Here are my preliminary thoughts for Friday night into Saturday.

    Snow will develop after midnight Friday night. Snow will continue into Saturday morning.

    After 7am Saturday, the snow will begin to change to rain from south to north.

    By 12pm Saturday, plain rain will be affecting the entire Hudson Valley, as temps warm to near 40 degrees.

    Before the changeover to rain, 3" to 6" of snow is possible here in the Hudson Valley.

    Sunday will feature plain rain showers with highs up near 50F!

    I'll send another update Friday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV WINTER WEATHER UPDATE: A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect starting at Midnight and lasting into Saturday morning.

    Snow will develop after midnight tonight. The snow will stay rather light until 4am. After 4am, the snow intensity will pick up here in the Hudson Valley.

    After 7am Saturday, the snow will begin to change to rain from south to north. By 12pm, the entire Hudson Valley will be seeing plain rain with temps above 32F.

    Before the changeover to rain, 2" to 4" of snow is expected South of I-287 with 3" to 6" of snow expected North of I-287

    Rain showers will continue Saurday afternoon into Saturday night and Sunday as temps continue to rise! By Sunday, temperatures will be peaking in the 50s.

  • HV WINTER WEATHER UPDATE: Here are my thoughts on what you can expect on Thursday.

    For those of you living in Westchester and Rockland Counties:

    Snow will develop Thursday morning between 7am and 9am. The snow will quickly mix with and change to rain by noon. Periods of rain will then fall during the afternoon, possibly ending as snow by 7pm.

    Temperatures will be above freezing all day on Thursday, so treated surface will see little to no snow accumulation; Untreated surfaces will see a coating to 1" of snow.

    For those of you living in Orange and Putnam counties:

    Snow will develop Thursday between 7am and 9am. Snow will then mix with rain as we head into the afternoon. Any mix may end as all snow by 7pm.

    Temperatures will stay above 32F, so treated surfaces will see little to no snow accumulation; Untreated surfaces will see 1" to 3" of snow.

    Stay close to News12 for LIVE updates. I will only send an update later today if the forecast changes dramatically.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT: (UPDATED THURSDAY 12PM)

    Light snow will develop here in the Hudson Valley between 10pm and 1am tonight.

    Occasional snow will then continue overnight. The precipitation will remain all snow everywhere, with temperatures in the 20s.

    The snow will taper off Friday morning between 7am and 10am.

    As you can see by the above snowfall map, accumulations will be a COATING to 1" with the best chance to see 1" in Southern and Eastern Westchester County.

    An isolated 2" amount is possible along the immediate Sound Shore.

    -Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV SNOW ALERT:

    Colder air working back into the HV tonight is turning what was expected to be a mostly rain event into another wintry mess on Sunday.

    It looks like snow or snow & sleet will develop between 5AM and 8AM Sunday morning.

    Snow or a wintry mix of snow and sleet will continue for much of the morning. By early to mid afternoon, most of Rockland and Westchester Counties will have changed over to mainly rain.

    In Orange and Putnam Counties, a wintry mix will continue Sunday afternoon.

  • MARCH MADNESS IN THE HV! After a mild Thursday, snow is on the way for Friday moring.

    A mix of rain and snow will develop here in the HV around midnight Thursday night. That wintry mix will change to snow by daybreak Friday, as colder air works into the HV.

    Snow will then affect us Friday morning and will taper off mid-to-late morning on Friday.

    At this time, I would prepare for 1" to 3" of snow.

    This is a HIGHLY VARIABLE forecast and we still have some time to watch this fast moving system.

    I will have another update for you on Thursday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • MARCH MADNESS HERE IN THE HV! After temps in the 50s today, we have snow on the way for tonight and Friday.

    A mixture of rain and snow will develop around or shortly after midnight.

    Any wintry mix will quickly change to all snow, with the entire HV seeing all snow by 5AM. Temperatures will be near 32F.

    The snow will continue Friday morning and should end by 12PM.

    It looks as if 2" to 5" of snow will be possile here in the Hudson Valley.

    More updates to follow today if conditions change dramatically.

  • HV SNOW UPDATE: March madness continues as more snow is headed to the HV on Tuesday.

    Here is what you can expect:

    Snow develops Tuesday morning between 2am and 4am.

    The snow will end Tuesday afternoon between 4pm and 6pm.

    At this time, I do not see much mixing here in the HV so this looks like predominately snow for us.

    Total snow accumulation for the HV looks to be 8” to 16”.

    I would assume no school on Tuesday for most of our districts here in the HV.

    I’ll post another update Monday morning.-Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck

  • HV BLIZZARD UPDATE: Get ready for a snow day on Tuesday.

    Snow will develop here in the HV between 1am and 3am Tuesday morning.

    Heavy snow along with strong wind will then last for most of the day on Tuesday. At this time I see little to no mixing here in the Hudson Valley.

    The accumulating snow will end Tuesday late afternoon between 4pm and 6pm.

    Total snow looks to be anywhere from 12" to 20" here in the Hudson Valley! WOW!

  • SATURDAY SNOW UPDATE: A very tricky forecast for the Hudson Valley, as a Norlun Trough is expected to impact our weather.

    First, for those of you interested in what a norlun trough is you can check out this link: forecasterjack.com

    Now the forecast:

    Before 5pm on Saturday only spotty light snow mixed with rain is expected. There will be little to no snow accumulation through 5pm Saturday. I do want to stress that. I would not change or cancel plans you may have during the day on Saturday.

    After 5pm Saturday, the precipitation will be mainly snow and will begin to fall a bit heavier and steadier.

    Periods of snow will then continue Saturday night and end very early Sunday morning.

    1" to 3" of snow is possible here in the Hudson Valley, again mainly Saturday night.

    However, these norlun troughs are tough to forecast and so localized higher amounts of snow are possible.
