Weather in NYC, NJ, CT For Sunday: Less Wind & Sun
The satellite loop this morning shows the strong storm in Eastern Canada is moving away to the east and it is finally relaxing its grip over our area as far as the wind is concerned. It is a chilly start this morning and still a tad breezy in spots but as the day progress the wind should relax some more and temperatures will rebound back into the middle and upper 50s making for a very nice mid autumn Sunday afternoon.
The radar is very quiet as the low moves away. Lake effect precipitation and clouds have diminished.
Monday should also be a nice day with sunshine and temperatures will tack on a couple of degrees and head in to the upper 50s and lower 60s. However Tuesday we will run into some issues.
Highs pressure to the north will move into New England. This is a very strong high thanks to the powerful upper ridge that is building along the east coast. The result will be a strong onshore flow across the Northeast and Mid Atlantic States. This will bring in cloud cover it will hold temperatures down considerably. Tuesday’s highs will only be in the upper 40s to lower 50s because of this.
The onshore will be at its strongest on Tuesday but should relax some on Wednesday as the high moves out further to the east and the next cold front begins its approach. This will gradually turn winds to the south. The pressure gradient will be rather tight so winds could increase some later Wednesday into Thursday ahead of the cold front. Even though the front is moving into where the strong upper ridge lies, there should be enough support for some showers on Thursday.
This could be a 1/2 inch to 1 inch rain producer but the heaviest rains are likely to pass to the west of the coast. The front should pass offshore later Thursday night. Next weekend we will begin the process of what could be a series of cold fronts with each air mass behind it progressively colder. The pattern seems ready to change during Thanksgiving week.
