Beautiful Saturday Sun Clouds Sunday Nice Monday No Rain Next Week
JOE & JOE WEATHER SHOW PODCAST 9/19/2020
Not only are we enjoying a beautiful day of weather but the big high to the north has cleared out all the smoke from the upper atmosphere leaving us with deep blue skies and sunshine. Temperatures are in the autumn like low to mid 60s with dew points under 30. There are no issues on the satellite picture this as all the clouds are well south in the Carolinas and they won’t be coming here. There is an upper trough moving across the Northern Great Lakes. That will move through our area on Sunday but with nothing more than some clouds coming into the mix. The radars are silent and can take a vacation since no rain is forecast through next week.
Tonight is going to be a chilly night for mid September with clear skies and diminishing winds. Temperatures by morning will settle in the 40s to around 50s but there will be 30s as you head inland into Northern Pennsylvania and the Hudson Valley north of Route 84. This will likely bring the first frosts across much of Upstate NY and interior New England.
Sunday looks to be a nice day but as we mentioned earlier an upper trough moving through will probably put some fair weather clouds in the mix. It will be another cool day across the Northeast with highs mostly in the low to mid 60s. Areas north and west of NYC where there may be more clouds than sun will struggle to get above the 60 degree mark.
Another cold night is in store for Sunday night into Monday morning under clear skies. Again lows will be in the 40s to near 50 in the warmer urban settings with 30s likely inland and not too far north and west of the major cities.
Monday the upper trough will be to the east and offshore. This will bring us another day of sunshine with fewer if any clouds. Highs will be in the 60s. That upper trough is also going to be the driver for Hurricane Teddy as it passes Bermuda early Monday morning and takes aim for Nova Scotia on Tuesday.
Hurricane Teddy will turn the winds here to northwest Monday night and Tuesday leaving us Tuesday in lots of sunshine with highs in the 60s to near 70 degrees. The high settles in the southeast US for the rest of the week putting us in a warmer flow with sunshine. Highs Wednesday will be back into the 70s and we should be in the 70s to near 80 Thursday. A weak front will pass early Friday with little fan fare other than clouds and the outside chance for a passing shower. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s. No substantial rain is in the cards in the long range.
