Two Nice Days Ahead Rain Friday Into Early Saturday Chilly Weekend
Weather in 5 Wednesday October 14, 2020
The dreary rainy conditions of the last two days are now history. A cold front has moved into New England. Now we look ahead to improvement today and Thursday. Weak high pressure will keep it dry with sunshine today. High clouds could come into the mix later today but other than that we have no issues. Highs will be in the upper 60s to some lower 70s. The satellite shows a sunny start across the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states and the regional radar is nice and silent.
We have no weather issues tonight nor do we have any weather issues on Thursday. We will have mainly clear skies tonight with lows in the 40s except low 50s in the warmer urban areas. Thursday will be a rather nice and warm day with sunshine and some high clouds. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s.
Friday brings the next cold front which will stall out along the coast and then a wave develops on the front and moves northeastward. That will create an expanding area of rain later Friday into Friday night and early Saturday morning. The low will also be dragging in chilly air for the weekend. Highs Friday will be in the 60s along the coast and just in the 50s well inland. Temperatures will settle lower once the rain begins.
The low does move out Saturday morning though the back edge of the rain will probably be near NYC Southern New England and Long Island at day break. Rainfall could be in a range of 3/4 inch to an inch and a half. Overall Saturday weather conditions improve from west to east with decreasing clouds and increasing amounts of sunshine. Highs will be just in the 50s. More cold fronts are in our future in the next few weeks with the next one coming late Monday.
