April 3: Warmth To Peak On Wednesday

This morning is still chilly in parts of the area, especially along the coast due to the influence from the colder water offshore, though temperatures there aren’t expected to warm by a lot due to the same influence from the ocean. High temperatures today are expected to be in the upper 50s to 60s along the immediate coast, in the upper 60s to lower 70s for New York City, in the lower to mid 70s in the north and western suburbs, and in the mid to upper 70s inland.

Tomorrow, however, will be a different story for places closer to the coast. The winds that caused the sea breeze came from the south. By tomorrow, the winds are expected to switch direction, and come mainly from the west, which will also allow coastal areas to get warmer. High temperatures tomorrow are expected to reach the upper 60s to lower 70s along the coast, in the lower to mid 70s for NYC, and in the mid to occasionally upper 70s north and west of NYC. The inland areas should be slightly colder than today.

Monday should also be warm, and with the lack of sea breeze, temperatures are expected to reach the 70s across a rather widespread part of the area, except for the immediate coast.

Tuesday Through Friday Forecast:

By Tuesday, a weak cold front reaches the area, bringing along with it scattered showers, which should mainly stay to our north. This will bring slightly colder highs, in the upper 60s across the area, with lower 70s south of New York City. By Tuesday night, the front moves north, away from the area, with a much warmer air mass moving in. With a possible southwest wind, this would limit any widespread sea breeze, and temperatures should easily reach the 70s across the area, with lower 80s even possible away from the immediate coast.

A cold front then approaches the area on Thursday, with slightly colder high temperatures, in the upper 60s to lower 70s. This cold front brings some rain and thunderstorms on Thursday and Thursday night, though how much rain falls is still uncertain. Behind this cold front, much colder temperatures return, with high temperatures returning into the 50s and 60s.
