Week Ahead Weather Cold Fronts Shower Chances
A quick shot of dry air is moving in tonight and for Monday. We saw some pop up showers and thunderstorms today as a “dry line” moved southward. Lower humidity will move in tonight as skies clear with temperatures settling in the 60s to near 70. It is a quiet end to a mostly quiet weekend for most. Thunderstorms will not be an issue on Monday.
Regional and local radars are showing a few isolated thunderstorms still dotting the radars this evening but they will be disappearing shortly. Widespread thunderstorms are in Eastern North Carolina as it is dealing with a passing front and a frontal boundary that is set up offshore.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Monday should be a nice day with sunshine and relatively low humidity with highs reaching 80 to 85 in most places. The frontal boundary to the south will be active with a wave developing on it. Humidity will be rising Monday night and Tuesday. There could be a few pop up showers or a thunderstorm Tuesday along with some sunshine with highs in the 80s. The next cold front approaches on Wednesday
With rising dew points and a strong short wave trough in the upper air will produce some thunderstorms late in the day Wednesday into Wednesday night. I think there is the risk of severe weather with this front. Highs will be in the 80s. A second front follows Thursday night. This front probably won’t have much with it. Look for clouds and sun Thursday with highs in the 80s.
The second front will have a nice dry high behind it and that should bring a very nice air mass into the East toward the end of next week and into next weekend.
