NARROW BAND OF THUNDERSTORMS MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD
So far the thunderstorms showing up on the radar are strong but the band is rather narrow. It looks like a stick of thunderstorms are moving southeastward. While narrow these storms could get a bit rough in some areas. Nothing severe has shown up so far but the slow movement could put someone in heavy rains for a long enough time to trigger off some flooding issues. Flash Flood Watches continue for Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey at the moment.
These thunderstorms are thanks to a cold front that is going to move through tonight and settle just to the south of NYC on Sunday. It is on this front that a wave will develop that will cause some rain during Sunday morning. The best chances for this will be in coastal areas.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
There are no changes to the outlook for Sunday Monday and Tuesday. Onshore flow means temperatures in the 70s. It will also mean lots of clouds though I would not rule out some brightening skies north of NYC on Sunday. Tuesday we will see downpours and thunderstorms develop later in the day and at night as a warm front comes up from the south followed by a cold front and thunderstorms on Wednesday.
The humidity break remains on course for later next week after Wednesday’s cold front moves through. We will see a significant shot of dry air for Thursday and Friday. Dew points will be in the 40s and temperatures will be in the 70s to near 80 for highs with lots of sunshine. Good hair weather finally will return.
