Forecast by Zachary Jacomowitz

Hello, Rockland County! Can you believe it?

Friday marks the beginning of meteorological winter, which runs through February 28. This period is denoted for meteorologists because it makes it easier to study seasonal data and records rather than follow the typical astronomical seasons, which begin and end mid-month. Anyway, here is your forecast!

Friday. Morning clouds, followed by afternoon sun. High near 46° after a morning low near 35°. Chance of rain is 10%.

Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy skies. High near 42° after a morning low near 28°. Chance of rain is 0%.

Sunday: Partly cloudy skies with a high near 44° after a morning low near 28°. Chance of rain is 0%.
