Lots of Sunshine Warm Up Begins
Hurricane Teddy 500 Miles East of New Jersey Rough Surf Rip Currents
WEATHER IN 5 PODCAST
it is the first day of fall however weather wise it obviously has already started with the cold nights with early frosts and chilly days with highs just into the 60s. Now a bounce in temperatures is in order. Hurricane Teddy is passing to the east today and at the same time high pressure over New England is reforming in the Mid Atlantic states. This will turn our winds to northwest and it will become somewhat breezy or even windy along the immediate coast.
Temperatures today should bounce to the upper 60s and lower 70s with lots of sunshine. We will continue to see rough surf and rip currents today and probably Wednesday due to Teddy. Tides however will be helped by the northwest wind on ocean facing beaches. It is nice and clear on the satellite and nice and quiet on the radar so our rain free weather continues with no rain or showers in site for days.
There are no real changes in the outlook going forward. Look for sunshine on Wednesday and it will turn warmer with winds going west and then west southwest. Highs will reach the mid 70s to around 80 degrees.
Thursday looks sunny with highs reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s. The offshore high remains in control through the weekend but we will start to see some nighttime and morning low clouds develop and then that burns off to sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s each day from Friday through Sunday. We will finally see the first of two cold fronts approach on Sunday with a good chance for showers late in the day or more than likely Sunday night into Monday.
Once that front passes we will have to wait for a second front to arrive late Tuesday with another round of showers. After this front passes chilly air from Canada returns and we are in for a stretch of below average temperatures later next week. That pattern suggests possibilities for more rain down the road which will help to alleviate the dry conditions that have developed recently.
Below normal temperatures will likely be back Wednesday and carry us for 5 or six days. There is a rather deep trough forecast in the Eastern US late next week and that looks to set us up for a large high building across the Great Lakes and Northeast with lower pressures to the south. As long as nothing develops in the tropics, it should manageable and part of the process of that atmosphere cooling down. In the meantime the great weather continues here for the next few days.
