Showers End Then Colder Drier Weekend, Offshore Storm Stays Offshore
A storm centered in Upstate NY is moving into and through the Saint Lawrence Valley today. Showers that are around on the radars this morning will last for awhile longer as the cold front moves through the area and offshore later this morning and early afternoon. Showers should come to an end between now and midday and then we will spend the afternoon in leftover clouds. Temperatures today are in the 50s and they are likely to just hold there for the rest of they though they might ease a bit as we head to the late afteroon and evening.
Once this storm system is done with us we are going to be fine for the weekend. The front itself is going to slow down and stall offshore and as energy swinges eastward across the Carolinas, a storm develops east of North Carolina and then it will move slowly northward.
This storm is going to move northward and then eventually northward and that could cause some moisture to back westward into the coast. Clouds could likely be an issue at some point this weekend from Southeastern New England, Long Island and perhaps even coastal New Jersey. Some precipitation could actually reach Cape Cod and Islands but we do not expect it to back any further west than that.
This should leave much of the rest of the area in partly sunny skies and head far enough inland and it will be mostly sunny for both Satuday and Sunday. It will be a chilly windy day Saturday with the low offshore and high temperatures will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s at best.
There is no real cold air anywhere. Even the air in Canada is not especially cold which is why we can only see to gravitate toward average for this time of year when we get behind these cold fronts and even that doesn’t last long. Sunday should be no worse than partly sunny except for perhaps Eastern Long Island and Southeastern New England where it will be cloudy. Highs will be mostly in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
We don’t see much of anything happening for the start of next week. Monday will be dry with some sunshine and highs in the 40s. The next cold front moves east Tuesday but the old coastal storm will be sitting offshore of Maine and Nova Scotia and that causes that front to weaken. Look for clouds Tuesday with perhaps a passing shower or two inland and those showers will be scattered in nature. Tuesday highs will be in the 40s. The next low and cold front with any significant precipitation probably waits for the end of next week. The non winter winter continues.
