VERy Warm Weather to Start the Week Aournd NYC!
It's Back to Cold After Wednesday!
Most temperatures yesterday wound up in the lower 50s.... And, even though it didn't get
quite as mild as we had anticipated it would late last week (this could be mainly attributed to
widespread fog during the morning), the upward trend we had been calling for over the weekend
still worked out well... Today, we should start off fairly cloudy with patchy fog and even a touch of
drizzle... But, with the winds this afternoon mainly out of the southwest, some sunny breaks will
allow for it to get even warmer than yesterday... The mercury should wind up within a couple of
degrees of 60 this afternoon, or about 10-12 degrees above the seasonal averages... Tonight, the
sky will turn out rather cloudy... Even though there will be some low clouds around tomorrow, it
will become even warmer -- and it should qualify as the warmest day of the week... Most
temperatures will be in the mid 60s, although some of the south-facing shores will be no higher
than the 50s, and some western suburbs will probably peak in the upper 60s...
Our next cold front, which will be emerging in the Eastern Region during midweek, will be moving
across the northern Plains and the Upper Midwest today and tonight... The rationale we're applying
during the next 48 hours is that the 'warmest air will be getting squeezed out' ahead of that next,
approaching front... The arrival of this front should result in a few scattered showers, which
should begin late tomorrow night in areas north and west of I-95 before reaching the coastal plain
early on Wednesday morning... Therefore, we have covered for these showers in our forecasts,
which should bring less than a quarter of an inch of rainfall... In fact, many places will probably
see less than a tenth of an inch --- and temperatures should still manage to climb well into the 50s
But, the changes which will usher in somewhat 'colder air' will be felt around here on Wednesday
night and Thursday... Winds out of the northwest will bring clearing, and temperatures on
Thursday afternoon will be no higher than the lower or middle 40s, even though it'll be a fairly
sunny day... Friday will not be as chilly as Thursday, and then a brand new front arriving over the
weekend could bring with it a couple of showers on Saturday...
No major cold intrusions/arctic outbreaks are expected during the next seven days...
Have a good day!!!
