Rain Tonight Ends Before Daybreak Chilly Saturday Sunday Sunshine Both Days
JOE & JOE WEATHER SHOW FRIDAY OCTOBER 16, 2020
Weather in 5 Friday October 16, 2020
Our weather front has passed to the east and is now stalled as low pressure develops to out south. The area of rain which for much of today has been bordered from Eastern Pennsylvania on the western flank to Central Long Island and Central Connecticut northward will shift to the east this evening and tonight and some of the rain will be heavy. We have seen temperatures settle in the 50s and we will continue to see temperatures drop tonight in the 40s with even some 30s well north and west. The rains will end from west to east during the early morning hours and weather conditions will improve on Saturday.
The north northeast south south west band of rain will be shifting east soon on regional and local radars but in the meantime some areas have seen some heavier downpours in the mix. Anywhere from 3/4 inch to an inch and a half of rain should do it here. Amounts will be higher in Southern and Southeastern New England and lower in areas from Western New jersey westward.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
The weekend outlook remains unchanged. It will be a chilly Saturday with some sunshine. Highs will be just in the 50s and then we head down into the 30s overnight into Sunday morning. Warmer urban areas and coastal regions will bottom in the low to mid 40s. Sunday should be a nice sunny day with highs back into the 60s.
Next week we have three fronts. All of the fronts are weak. Two tropical storms will develop. One stays offshore. The other comes out of the Western Caribbean and might be something to watch as we get into next week. Weather models seem to be keying in on this and have been for over a week. We will have more on this on tonight’s Joe & Joe Weather show at 7:30pm
