Warm Day Record Highs Possible Showers Late
Gradual Cool Down Thursday Through Sunday
The warm pattern continues and we have a day where are are waiting for a cold front to arrive and a west to southwest wind ahead of it. How high it gets today depends on how long it takes for low clouds and fog to burn off. Most areas will be successful. The other issue is how much sun can break through the clouds. We think this will also be successful in many areas espeically as you go south and west. High temperatures this afternoon will reach the mid and upper 60s from NYC south and southwest and I would not be at all surprised if somebody gets to 70 degrees. To the east across Long Island, Connecticut and Southeastern New England, highs will be mostly in the 50s as the warm front struggles to move further north.
Showers are beginning to appear on the radar and that activity will move through late this afternoon and evening as a cold front attempts to pass through. This will happen relatively quickly as showers should be done this evening. Then it is leftover clouds overnight with perhaps some partial clearing of skies. Lows will be in the 40s to around 50.
The next several days will see a little bit of unsettled weather because we do have a couple of weak weather systems that will be moving through. This will likely mean that Thursday will be a day where we have more clouds than sun. Temperatures will not be going much of anywhere even with the launch pad of temperatures in the morning; highs will just be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Friday sees an upper trough moving through and with that there could be a few showers, mainly in the morning. Otherwise we will have clouds and highs in the 40s. The weekend should be dry through the daytime Sunday. We are looking at some sun and a few clouds Saturday with highs in th low to mid 40s. Sunday look for arriving clouds as another weak system comes out of the Plains and makes its way east. This low will pass to our south Sunday night into Monday morning and with that, the chance for a little rain. There could be some wet snow in the mix inland but with a lack of any real cold air it will likely not be an issue. Sunday highs will be mostly in the lower 40s.
Next week we will see temperatures closer to average much of time though it will still lean to be a little above average temperature wise. There are several systems that will be moving through and models at this point are all over the place in terms of timing. There are some indications that there will be some sort of an ocean low that will develop but whether that leads to anything significant precipitation wise is highly uncertain.
