A much colder air mass is currently positioned over the region, with temperatures having only peaked in the low to mid 50s this afternoon across most of the area. Areas of frost are possible tonight as temperatures fall into the 30s outside of NYC, but with increasing cloud cover and wind as a coastal low pressure stalls off the coast, with occasional showers expected between Thursday and Friday generally amounting to 1/2 to 1 inch.
Following last night’s frontal passage, a gradual cooling trend is expected through the weekend, bringing a return to near to below average temperatures. A secondary cold front will pass through on Saturday, ushering in much colder temperatures for Sunday and Monday, followed by a potential coastal low pressure mid-late next week which may provide an extended period of clouds, wind and rain.
A warm and humid air mass returned into the region as temperatures climbed into the mid to upper 70s today. Similar temperatures will continue on Wednesday before a cold front produces heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms on Thursday. A weak cool down will follow the cold front on Friday, but with a much stronger surge of cold air likely to bring high temperatures into the 50s range late in the weekend into early next week.
Following the departure of yesterday’s light rain event, mostly sunny skies will continue today before clouds and temperatures increase early in the week, with high temperatures rebounding into the mid 70s again. A slow moving cold front will produce heavy rain on Wednesday night into Thursday, followed by a gradual cooling trend with another risk of showers next weekend.
A weak wave of low pressure will approach the region on Friday, producing a period of light to moderate rain overnight into Saturday morning as it gradually deepens to the east. Temperatures will quickly rebound into the 70s early next week ahead of the next strong frontal passage, with moderate to heavy rain likely on Tuesday night into Wednesday, followed by another transient cool down and warming trend.
An anomalously strong upper level low continues to spin over Ontario while drifting east, with a strong shortwave trough rotating through the northeast US tonight, providing sufficient forcing to result in a risk of heavy to locally strong thunderstorms tonight over the area. Behind the storm system, cooler temperatures will return through next weekend along with a risk of light rain on Friday ahead of the next widespread rain event next week.
A strong cold front is currently moving through the region, having produced moderate to heavy rain over parts of the area earlier today. A strong surge of cold air will follow, with temperatures struggling to pass 60 degrees on Sunday. Temperatures will slightly moderate early in the week with light rain on Tuesday night, followed by a gradual warming trend late in the week along with another light rain potential on Friday.
A northeasterly low level flow with overcast skies persisted for a third day as a low pressure area remained stalled well offshore, with highs remaining in the mid 60s to low 70s range. A more significant pattern change is underway, however, highlighted in the area by a strong frontal passage on Saturday expected to produce locally heavy rain followed by a brief surge of much cooler temperatures on Sunday.
