The National Weather Service in Albany predicts the first frost of the season will happen on Saturday.
Three weeks after the official start of fall, the mid-Hudson Valley will finally feel seasonable weather this weekend, according to the National Weather Service in Albany.
Friday was expected to be the warmest day the region could see for a while, Joe Villani, meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said.
“Temperatures are already much cooler, mainly in the 50s now across the region,” Villani said. “It will definitely be a lot cooler, drier and a northwest breeze will move in and make it feel more like fall.”
There is a chance of light rain later Friday night. Rain is expected Saturday morning, before giving way to mostly clear skies at night. The first frost of the season is expected Saturday night, so residents should cover or bring in sensitive plants from outside, Villani said.
Friday’s high is expected to be 54 degrees with a low near 63 degrees. The high on Saturday predicted to be 56 degrees with a low around 36. On Sunday, the high will be around 60 degrees with a low of 42, he said.
“Once we get to Saturday afternoon, it looks like it’s going to be dry through Sunday,” Villani said. “Most of the weekend looks pretty good. Sunday after a cool start, there will be plenty of sunshine.”
There is a chance for showers to start of next week but it won’t be a “washout like on Thursday,” Villani said.
