Daily Weather Update : (Wednesday 4/23/14 @ 9:50pm)

The next 7 to 10 days are not going to make me very many friends.  The pattern we're going into... is quite unsettled.  It's just not very nice... I don't know how to put it.  The next 5 days are going to be a battle... where we try to sneak in some nice days.  There will likely be a frontal boundary that will separate a late spring air mass... from a late winter air mass.  That boundary will be close to the Hudson Valley... and that means some tough forecasts and close calls.  If things break in our favor... we could see sun and mid 60s.  If things don't go our way... it's clouds, showers, and temps in the low 50s.  So lets have a look...

Thursday would be spectacular... if not for the wind and cold air.  Sunshine won't be a problem, but the northwest wind will keep temps locked in the mid 50s.  Add to that wind gusts near 30mph, and you've got a pretty ugly day.

Friday looks interesting, as sunshine fades behind increasing clouds as we go thru the day.  The wind is much less gusty, and temps should crack 60 degrees.  So it will feel much better than Thursday.  A batch of rain showers moves in after sunset, and dampens the Hudson Valley for the night.

Saturday is the first of a series of "question marks".  What I mean by that, is there is considerable disagreement among the computer data.  The EURO tries to force the Canadian air down into the Northeast, while the GFS tries to hold onto the warmth just a bit longer.  We'll see what the right idea is as we get closer.  But for now... Saturday will see clouds and a shower to start the day.  Then we might see a break or two of sun... but it also looks like unsettled conditions hold on for the duration of he day.

Sunday (I think) will see sunshine and clouds, with temps near 60 degrees... we'll have to watch.  I'll let you look at the 5 day forecast from there, but I have minimal confidence in anything beyond Saturday.  I'll try to show you what I mean in the Pure Speculation section (provided I stay awake), but it's really like throwing a dart at the dartboard right now... because it all hinges on where the frontal boundary sets up.

Alright... off to work on other parts of the website, so maybe I'll post more here in an hour or two... if not, I hope you have a fantastic Thursday.  Where does the week go?  It's Thursday already?  Jeez.  Dozing off... so time to get to work, and wake myself up.  See you Thursday night..

I saw a map shared on Facebook a few times in the past 24 hours, and I've spent a day trying to "get over it"... but I just can't.  It goes back to the same thing that I posted an article about a month ago.  An online weather provider based out of California... run by a man with the same credentials as me... posted this map on Sunday
