Your weekly forecast by Zachary Jacomowitz

Hello, Rockland County! I hope that you’ve had a great week! It sure seems like winter does not want to quit. Well, the Spring, or Vernal, Equinox occurs next week, so let’s see if spring-like weather is in store!

Friday: Mix of clouds and sun. High near 38° after a morning low near 24°. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with a high near 43° after a morning low near 25°. Chance of precipitation is 10%.

Sunday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. High near 41° after a morning low near 22°. Chance of precipitation is 10%

Monday: Partly cloudy with a high near 46° after a morning low near 27°. Chance of precipitation is 10%.

Tuesday: The potential exists for a storm system to bring either rain, snow, or a mix of rain and snow. There is just too much uncertainty right now. Expect a high near 35° after a morning low near 32°. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with the chance of rain and/or snow showers. High near 35° after a morning low near 29°. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Thursday: Partly cloudy skies with a high near 40° after a morning low near 22°. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

SUMMARY:
Quiet weather is expected through early next week with temperatures in the low to mid-40s and chilly mornings. A storm system could impact the area Tuesday-Wednesday of next week, but there is too much uncertainty right now to give any specific details. The Vernal (Spring) Equinox officially occurs at 12:15 PM EDT on Tuesday, 3/20, so hopefully more spring-like weather is right around the corner! Have a great and safe week!
