I will say this much. It’s very good that this is a written forecast. As difficult as Poughkeepsie is to write, it’s even harder to say. Weather has been a bit dicey out that way recently, but it looks like we are settling into a bit calmer pattern. What are the numbers looking like in Poughkeepsie.
At 353PM, ET, Poughkeepsie was reporting a temperature of 81 degrees with overcast skies. The tail end of a cold front lay between Poughkeepsie and Long Island, with clear skies and oceanic flow over New York and the Hamptons, and cloudy skies up the Hudson Valley. Cooler temperatures, as low as 69 in Binghamton, were seen in western New York. The clouds are not a widespread overcast, but a natural byproduct of the cooler invasion.
Clearer skies will come tomorrow as flow from the northwest dissipates. A weak upper level trough is trailing the present pattern, and will reinforce the stabilizing pattern, with warmer air returning both at the surface and aloft. As the upper level trough approaches, expect some more clouds, but shower activity to hold off west of the Catskills.

Looks like some outlets are a shade more pessimistic about the rain than myself. Here is a look at the satellite, with those fair weather cumulus clouds over New York.
