Sunday Brings Long Island Another Round of Rain But Some Sun Should Return Monday
We do have Coastal Flood Advisories up for both the south and north shore as the tides are running very high after the full moon of a few days ago. Now throw in this strong onshore flow and we are seeing minor to even a few pocket so moderate coastal flooding at high tides. Gale warnings are in effect for the coastal waters tonight and Sunday.
I don’t think anything could have been worse for a day at the end of May than what we saw Friday night and during today. The 2 inches plus rain did at least wash all the pollen out of the air so that was a positive. However the screaming winds Friday night and a Saturday where temperatures didn’t get out of the 40s is completely unacceptable. Now we look ahead to overnight where we are in lots of clouds, a raw northeast wind, and temperatures still in the 40s. Rain is loading up on the radars to the south.
Another low is headed up the coast for Sunday. This means Sunday won’t be much better than Saturday. At least the rain stopped for awhile on Saturday but we are looking at another round of steady rain during the day Sunday into Sunday night. Temperatures should get into the 50s which is almost a given since the chilly high to the north moves out to the east and we lose the coldest part of the flow.
Some areas of heavy rain are developing offshore so another inch to perhaps an inch and a half of rain is a good bet for Sunday. The good news is that we may be able to save Monday Memorial Day as low pressure moves northeast up the coast and then away from us later tonight so the rain should end during the early morning hours. Monday we are looking at clouds giving way to sunshine and highs should reach the upper 60s to near 70! It is a small consolation.
LONG RANGE NEXT WEEK AND NEXT WEEKEND
Tuesday looks like a nice day with sunshine and highs in the 70s. High pressure moves off the Mid Atlantic coast and we have a warm front cold front combination approaching for Wednesday. First the warm front probably brings in some clouds and maybe some scattered showers or a thunderstorm.
Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 in some spots. Thursday will be warm and humid with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Late in the day Thursday we could see some thunderstorms as a cold front passes.
Late next week a strong ridge starts to build in the east from the Atlantic and that means that the weather next weekend will be the exact opposite of this weekend. At the very least temperatures will head for the 80s starting Friday and continue through the weekend. It also appears that next weekend will be dry with no rain. That ridge could hold for quite awhile producing a long spell of very warm to hot weather for the week of June 7th, provided no back door cold fronts surprise us at the last minute.
MANY THANKS TO TROPICAL TIDBITS & F5 WEATHER FOR THE USE OF MAPS
