Mar 18: Warm Weekend Ahead

Weekend Outlook: Much warmer than average

With today’s temperatures in the 60s, and some places reaching 70 degrees, tomorrow will only continue to get warmer, with high temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s across the area. On Saturday, places in the New York City area away from the coast might be able to reach the mid 70s. Sunday is expected to be partly cloudy with high temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Heavy Rain, Thunderstorms Possible Monday Night

The latest models today changed the timing of the next storm to affect the area, now expected to be between Monday night and Tuesday morning, instead of Sunday night and Monday morning. According to the latest model solutions, Monday morning should be dry, with light rain and some thunderstorms developing by Monday afternoon. The heaviest rain would fall on Monday night, and the rain ends on Tuesday morning.

There is still uncertainty with the exact timing of the storm, however it appears at this time that there is the potential for 3/4 to 1 inch of rain in the area, with higher amounts possible. Some wind is also possible out of this storm, however that is still uncertain.

No Cold Spell Next Week

Due to the storm being delayed, and the lack of arctic air further south, it now no longer appears that colder weather would return next week. While temperatures will briefly be in the lower 50s, temperatures warm up once again quickly afterwards, already reaching the 60s by the end of the week.

Another storm might impact the area late next week or early next weekend, with another cold front moving through the area, though there’s still uncertainty on that time period. Stay tuned for more updates.
