A stormy Saturday in the Hudson Valley has started with thick fog that will be followed by rain that is expected to be heavy at times and accompanied by strong, gusty winds.
Rain is likely to begin falling around noon, with the rain becoming heavy with a possible thunderstorm after 4 p.m.
Up to a quarter of an inch of rain is likely during the day Saturday, which should see a daytime high of around 60 degrees.
A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for 2 p.m. for Westchester and Putnam with visibility frequently reduced to one-quarter mile or less. Drivers are urged to slow down, use low-beam headlights and leave plenty of distance between cars. Patchy dense fog is expected to continue through around 3 p.m.
The advisory had been in effect until 11 a.m. Saturday before being extended to 2 p.m. around 10 a.m. Saturday. There is currently no fog advisory in effect for Rockland or Dutchess counties.
Rain will continue, with more thunderstorms possible, through 9 p.m., followed by a chance of rain through midnight, with another quarter-inch of rain possible in the evening.
The rain will usher in a cold front which will result in a colder day Sunday, with a high temperature only reaching the mid-40s under mostly sunny skies. The wind-chill value will make it feel more like it's between 25 and 30 degrees.
