Rain Heavy At Times Into Sunday Afternoon Another Rain Storm Late Next Week
Coastal Flood Advisory Overnight And Sunday Morning New Jersey & Long Island Coast
We are looking ahead to rain for Sunday at least into the afternoon before it ends from west to east. Low pressure is heading for the Great Lakes and a secondary low will likely develop over us Sunday morning. This puts us in line for some heavy downpours as the low forms and the front moves through. 1 to 2 inches of rain is likely in most places with lower amounts as you head into South Jersey with higher amounts Northwest New Jersey, the Hudson Valley, Connecticut and Long Island.
Radars are getting busy with the lead area of rain moving across Pennsylvania. We are seeing that rain starting to show up on the Mount Holly NJ & the Upton Radar on Long Island. The rain is moving northeastward. It will take awhile for the rain to reach the coast and it may not happen until just befor daybreak.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
With the front and the developing low nearby, gusty southeast winds will develop late tonight into Sunday afternoon until the front passes. As a result we have Coastal Flood Advisories posted for the Jersey and Long Island shorelines as well as the Long Island Sound shorelines and the areas surrounding NY Harbor. The rains will end Sunday afternoon from west to east and weather conditions will slowly improve Sunday night.
We should see some sunshine on Monday with highs in the 60s however we will have an onshore flow developing bringing in clouds and maybe a little light rain in spots Monday night into Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. We will see some sunshine on Wednesday ahead of another strong storm headed for the Great Lakes on Thursday Halloween.
The set up for Thursday looks much like the set up for Sunday. A strong storm heads for the Great Lakes with a warm front to the south bringing another inch plus rain event. Temperatures will be in the 60s to even some low 70s where the warm front passes. Behind this front it turns colder for Friday and next weekend.
