Local Flooding Possible In Heavier Downpours
The slow moving cold front is making progress this evening and there is moderate to heavy rain over much of Northern New Jersey to New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Rainfall amounts should reach an inch or so with some locally higher amounts. Satellite loop shows the big circulation around the Great Lakes which is driving the cold front slowly eastward. That front may take all night to clear the coastline. Rains should slowly end from west to east from New Jersey to the coast about midnight or so..and in the 3 or 4 am time frame for Central and Eastern Connecticut. Dry air behind it should come in and we will see a nice day with sunshine for Friday though temperatures which are in the 60s now will head to the upper 40s and low 50s by morning and then reach only the mid 50s during the afternoon Friday.
Saturday with highs in the 40s to around 50 we will have sunshine giving way to arriving clouds.. We have another cold front moving through Sunday morning and ahead of it some rain showers that could change to a few snow showers before ending. Colder air is here for Sunday through Tuesday with highs just at best in the lower or middle 40s Sunday and Monday and perhaps middle to upper 40s on Tuesday. Normal this time of year is middle 50s.
Longer term we have what looks like a tranquil storm free week for Thanksgiving with near normal temperatures for the most part. The next change may come next Saturday with a cold front that could bring some showers. Right now Friday the big shopping day looks dry.
