Clouds South Some Sun North Rain Setting Up For Sunday
It certainly is a nice change to see a high build down from Northern New England putting us in an onshore flow. This has made things much more comfortable in some ways but not in all ways. We have a frontal boundary that remains stalled to our south and we have already seen the first wave move offshore yesterday and become Tropical Storm Kyle. That storm is out to the east and moving away. The western edge of Kyle is on the upper right of the satellite picture. It is far enough out to the east to allow room for the next wave to up for tonight and Sunday.
Regional radar shows rain lining up across Southern Pennsylvania and points southward into Virginia. For now most of the rain is moving east and not showing much northward progress for today. The cloud line lies across Southern New England and across Northern New Jersey into Pennsylvania. Areas from here southward will have limited to no sun at all and temperatures will likely hold in the 70s to near 80. Where rain falls it will also stay in the 70s. Local radars aren’t showing much for now across southern areas but we will see those areas pick up some rain echos from time to time this afternoon.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
During tonight the next wave of low pressure will make its way northward slowly spreading rain with it. This will push even further north on Sunday. By midday Sunday almost everyone will be participating in the rain.
Some areas could see some heavier rain and those areas in Western and Southern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania should be on alert for flood risks. Temperatures in most areas will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s and some areas in Southern New England and Long Island might not get out of the 60s at all if the rain comes in fast enough.
The low should move out Sunday night and weather conditions will improve Monday though we do have a cold front coming through. This could trigger a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon as it goes by. Highs will be back into the 80s. Dew points however won’t be going up and should like in the reasonably comfortable range for most of the area into mid week. Tuesday should be a nice sunny day with highs into the 80s. Wednesday could see clouds an some late showers as another weather front goes by. At least we are getting a break from the 90s and high humidity.
