Heavy Rain Flash Flooding Weather Improves Saturday
Mix Possible Sunday Night
We have seen quite a bit of rainfall today with flash flooding common in many areas. The satellite loop this afternoon shows cloud cover moving northeastward and a bit of a dry hole developing in between the main thrust of moisture now in New England and some lingering rain and showers out to the west. We are also seeing the impact of warmer air that has moved in as temperatures have headed into the 60s in many areas. Now we wait for the surface storm and upper low to progress further north and east. This should bring the last of any showers through here going into this evening and finally weather conditions will improve tonight into Saturday.
Radars both regional and local show the heaviest rain now headed up into New England and northern areas of the Hudson Valley. Much of the steady rain as of this writing is over with in New Jersey, the Lower Hudson Valley, NYC and Western Long Island.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Rainfall amounts were impressive today with some 4-5 inch amounts in parts of the Hudson Valley and Connecticut. Most of the area got the advertised 2 to 3 inches today. Weather models did a very good job telegraphing the heavy rains from this storm.
We should see improvement tonight as winds shift to the southwest and then to the west with any leftover showers this evening ending and skies should partially clear out. Gusty winds will develop but temperatures won’t fall very much as we head down into the low to mid 40s by morning. Colder air will gradually take over on Saturday as temperatures hold in the 40s during the day. Winds will be gusting to 25 to 35 mph at times Saturday giving it a colder feel.
We will be down in the upper 20s and lower 30s Saturday night. Sunday we will see sunshine giving way to arriving clouds with highs just into the 40s. Weather models have started to focus on an disturbance and a weak low that will develop nearby Sunday night. Models are producing some precipitation with rain or a mix at the coast and some snow inland though this looks to be on the light side as the system is weak. Barring a surprise this should be a non event or at best a cheap thrill for inland areas (the European offers this possibility). Then it is dry and cold Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with sunshine and clouds and temperatures in the low 40s Monday and mostly in the 30s Tuesday.
