April 28: Weekend Warmth, Storm Update

As the storm exits the area, temperatures are going to begin quickly warming up. By the weekend, we should see temperatures well into the 80s, however this warm spell is going to be relatively short lived.

Tomorrow’s Outlook:

Tomorrow should be very different from today. While today was mainly cloudy and chilly, with high temperatures in the 50s, tomorrow will be mainly sunny, with temperatures warming into the mid-upper 60s, with parts of the New York City area seeing temperatures in the lower 70s. Despite the warm afternoon temperatures, however, frost is expected in the northwestern parts of the area tonight, with lows in the lower 30s.

The only area to not have mainly sunny skies is expected to be Maine, where clouds from the storm will slowly exit, along with scattered showers.

Weekend Outlook, Sunday Thunderstorms

Unlike last weekend, this weekend should be very warm. Temperatures will be well into the 80s across the area on Saturday, except for the immediate coast, that should stay mainly in the 70s. A few isolated thunderstorms are possible on Saturday afternoon, with mild overnight lows, in the 60s across the area.

Sunday bring the potential of more widespread thunderstorms, potentially strong or severe. As the cold front approaches the area, thunderstorms are expected. At this time, the probability of severe weather is uncertain, however the potential is there for scattered strong to severe thunderstorms, which I mentioned in my 5-day outlook.

Monday should be colder, with high temperatures in the 70s, with a few locations possibly reaching 80 degrees. The rest of the week continues to cool down, with high temperatures likely back into the 60s by Wednesday.
