Cool Night Ahead Sunny Tuesday Warmer Wednesday Night Showers Thunderstorms
It was quite the nice day across the Tri State area with a good deal of sunshine, some patchy fair weather clouds, and temperatures that topped in the upper 60s and lower 70s. High pressure is building in tonight along with the core of this cool air mass. It is producing clouds and a few scattered showers in Upstate Northeast NY & Northern New England as low pressure to the east starts to slide away. Nothing but clear skies ahead for us tonight with most lows in the 40s except lower 50s warmer urban centers and coastal areas.
Tuesday remains on course to be nice and sunny with not much wind and highs reaching the low to mid 70s in most places. The high will be moving off the Virginia North Carolina coast and out to sea Tuesday night which will bring warmer air in on Wednesday. Look for some sunshine and patchy clouds with highs reaching the mid 70s coast to lower 80s inland. It is a rather straight forward forecast for the remainder of the week. We have another cold front approaching Wednesday night into Thursday and there will be some showers and thunderstorms with it.
It looks like we will get some thunderstorms overnight and some showers into the first part of Thursday. The front will push southward. and stall out across the Middle Atlantic States. It seems that the boundary zone pushes rather far to the south which could lead to some optimism late week. The situation is complicated by a weak onshore flow.
I don’t think the onshore flow will be strong enough to keep us in non stop clouds Friday through Sunday. In fact high pressure from Canada looks to build southward and force the frontal boundary further south and it will keep showers and thunderstorms out of our area for Friday and likely for much of the weekend. Temperatures are likely to be close to average for this time of year which is mid 70s coast to lower 80s inland. One thing about this pattern is that it can’t get hot here in the Northeast into the Middle Atlantic States certainly not in the short range and probably not in the medium range.
