Record High Temperatures Weekend: Long Island Forecast
We are heading through a dry week as we are seeing decreasing clouds and increasing amounts of sunshine today. The pattern for the rest of the week looks benign with just cloud issues from day to day but still plenty of sun around. Today’s highs will be mostly in the 40s due to a storm offshore and a gusty north wind giving the afternoon a brisk feel to it. No issues with regards to any rain.
We will begin to tack on a couple of degrees each day and we should peak this weekend. There is a shot for record high temperatures or near record high temperatures Saturday and Sunday as winds become south southwest ahead of a cold front. That front is not going to get here until Monday so the weekend should be rain free.
Here is the latest weather forecast from FiOS1 News Long Island Meteorologist Geoff Bansen. Joe Cioffi will be on tonight beginning at 5pm
Weather conditions are pretty quiet across the east and midwest as the radar echos offshore continue to diminish. The next chance for a shower might come Thursday night as a warm front goes by to our north but it should be just a passing spot shower if that. Then we watch as the temperatures head into the low and mid 50s Thursday, mid to upper 50s Friday, and upper 50s to lower 60s on Saturday. Sunday’s highs i believe are underdone by the forecast map and they could easily be 5 degrees higher than indicated. This will put high temperatures around 15 or more degrees above normal.
There is still no real winter weather on the horizon however there are signs of a pattern shift coming soon and JOESTRADAMUS has more on this on the links provided below.
