Improving Weather Today Colder Dry Week Ahead
Rain overnight has now moved away to the northeast this morning. Other than a few lingering showers on the back side and some lingering rain over Central & Eastern Long Island, it appears that the rainy part of the weekend is over with. Now we look ahead to see if we can get the warmer air in here for later today and perhaps some brightening of skies or a few breaks of sun. Temperatures have already risen into the mid and upper 50s in Central & Southern New Jersey and near 50 on Long island. Meanwhile in the Hudson Valley & Interior Connecticut are in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Here it may be a bit tougher for temperatures to rise but we will give it a try at least.
Low pressure in Southeastern Iowa this morning is moving slowly northeastward. A warm front snakes eastward across Ohio and it remains pinched off in the Appalachians and then snakes back around to the Virginia coast. The front will eventually pass us later this morning and this afternoon and winds will turn to the west southwest. This should allow some areas from NYC west to warm into the 60s today.
Satellite and radar shows rain mostly northeast of NYC with just some scattered showers out to the west. The regional radar shows most of the activity up in New England where snow sleet & freezing rain are occurring.

We move on to the week ahead which we see no material change in the outlook through this coming Friday. The recent pattern of rain and weather systems coming through every 2 to 3 days appears to be relaxing. The upper air pattern this week favors colder air masses coming down from Canada but each weather front passes through with nothing more than a few snow showers. The temperature trend is down all week. We will still be in the 50s on Monday with some leftover warm air still around but we will be in the low 40s Tuesday and mostly 30s for highs Wednesday through Friday. Nighttime lows will make their way into the 20s.
Next weekend still has the idea of a storm on the table for the East Coast and still shows a high degree of uncertainty regarding it. We stated yesterday in our long range post and last night in our weather livestream that the presence of too many moving parts makes for many forecast issues. It could certainly lead to an outcome where not much if anything at all happens next weekend. We continue to monitor model trends today and see where they take us.
