Thunderstorms Cold Front Approaching Drier Air Follows Late Sunday
We are seeing a rather short but active line of thunderstorms moving southeastward from the Hudson Valley and Connecticut tonight. The bright white tops are obvious on the satellite picture below. Thunderstorms during this afternoon formed inland in the Hudson Valley and there were a few pop ups along the sea breeze front along the New Jersey shore but much of the area didn’t see much during the day. A cold front is moving southward and it will bring some humidity relief later Sunday and then a bigger drop in the humidity comes Sunday night and Monday.
You can see the short line on the regional radar and it shows up well on the local radars as well. Stronger cells are embedded in the line from Northwest New Jersey to Coastal Connecticut. The line is moving southeastward. Vivid lightning and heavy rain will be the primary effects of these storms as the line continues to move southeast.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Once these thunderstorms move through we should be done and weather conditions will improve overnight and toward daybreak. Sunday look for some sunshine with a few clouds. It will be very warm with a northwest wind but the humidity will be a bit lower with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Then the humidity takes a bigger drop Sunday night. Monday should be mainly sunny with most highs between 80 and 85. Some high clouds will be around in the afternoon especially in southern areas as the humidity makes a comeback on Tuesday. The next important cold front will arrive late Wednesday with some showers and thunderstorms.
