Another Alberta Clipper will slice southeastward to the western Great Lakes on a strong northwesterly jet stream and bring moderately cold air to the Hudson Valley during the first week of February, with generally dry conditions but occasional snow showers and highs in the 30’s except 20’s over higher elevations. A powerful storm system will push eastward to western New York bringing very mild air ahead of the low during the second week of February. In fact, the mercury could soar to 60 degrees with partly sunny skies followed by spring-like rains. Fine February weather will take over during the middle of the month with a trend toward seasonably cold air; highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s, as high pressure builds southward from eastern Canada. On the 16th through 18th a storm will develop unusually far to the south, as the jet stream will be across the Gulf States, with over a foot of snow as far south as northern Alabama and northern and central Georgia. While it’s cold and snowy to the south, it’s unseasonably warm far to the north from North Dakota to Minnesota and east to the Great Lakes, and this kind of warm-to-the-north cold-to-the-south weather pattern will only enhance the very dry weather pattern in the Hudson Valley, with one sunny day after another, during the second half of February. But the month will end very differently, with a major storm tracking eastward from the Ohio Valley and southern New England, pulling down arctic air. After a 10” snowfall in Rockland and Westchester and to 15” to 20” snow over higher elevations in Dutchess, Orange and Putnam Counties, winds will gust to 50 and even 60 MPH as bright sunshine takes over on February 27th to 29th with highs just in the low 20’s.
