The first frost may blanket portions of the region tonight, experts from the National Weather Service stated.
A Frost Advisory has been issued for Sullivan County and western Ulster County, effective from midnight tonight to 8:00am tomorrow. Temperatures are forecast to plunge to 33 to 37 degrees in those areas. The coldest temperatures are expected to be in the sheltered valley locations.
The advisory does not include the Newburgh area as temperatures will only fall to the mid 40s. Tomorrow’s high temperatures are predicted to rebound to the 70 degree mark.
According to data collected at the Vail’s Gate Tower, a weather tower operated by The Newburgh News, LLC, the overnight low temperature dropped down to 45.7 degrees last Friday. It is a far cry from this summer’s high temperature of 100.2 degrees logged last month.
The seven day forecast reported at the tower indicates Newburgh-area temperatures are now anticipated to drop to the lower 50s to mid 40s for the next week ahead, as daytime temperatures continue rising to the mid 60s to mid 70s.
