Humidity Dropping Weather Conditions Improve
Weekend Outlook Rain Next Week
We are transitioning over to a dry cooler air mass and we did see some rain mainly over Central and South Jersey this morning but that area just grazed NYC and Long Island briefly and then headed out to the east. Now we move through the rest of the day with leftover clouds giving way to some sunshine. Dew points are dropping and highs will be mostly in the 80s. Then we should clear out nicely tonight with most lows in the 60s.
Friday should be a nice day of sunshine and a northerly breeze as an upper trough drops into the Eastern US and strengthens. The position of the upper trough is basically right along the coast along 75 degrees which should keep today’s cold front and push it far enough offshore producing no complications. A few instability clouds will likely develop to mix in with some of the sunshine. Highs will be mostly in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
All of the upper air energy will be close by and we have a wave developing offshore Friday night into Saturday. If you draw a line from Boston to NYC west and north it should be a nice Saturday. East and Southeast of that line there probably will some clouds Saturday and for Eastern Connecticut, Eastern Long Island to Southeastern New England, I can’t rule out the possibility of a few showers.
As for Saturday highs, clouds to the east will keep temperatures in the 70s while to the west and southwest of that line from NYC to Boston, Highs will reach into the 80s with low humidity. Saturday night skies should be clear just about everywhere as that wave moves away. Lows will be in the 50s inland and 60 to 65 at the coast.
Sunday should be a nice day with sunshine though some clouds could start to come in from the west later in the day. Highs Sunday will be into the 80s. Next week starting Monday we are setting up for a potentially wet pattern at least into mid week with gives us the opportunity for a more widespread soaking rain which we certainly can use.
