Mar 25, 2011: Cold And Dry Weekend

Note: The 5-Day Forecast was not updated tonight, however there are no changes in the expectations from last night’s forecast.


As a very cold air mass for this time of the year continues to move in, high temperatures today were once again on the chilly side, ending up in the upper 30s inland and in the lower to mid 40s for the rest of the area. Temperatures will stay cold through the weekend, with high temperatures cooling down even more tomorrow with widespread low temperatures in the 10s expected on Sunday night, however afterwards temperatures will begin to warm up, with the next storm expected to affect the area late next week.

Tomorrow’s Outlook:

Tomorrow will bring sunny to mostly sunny skies across the area. A breezy NW wind is expected. High temperatures will be slightly cooler than today, peaking in the upper 30s to lower 40s in the immediate NYC area and further east, with mid to upper 30s inland. It is possible that temperatures end up slightly warmer than expected in the immediate NYC area into parts of southern Connecticut and Long Island.

Sunday And Next Week: Warming Up

As a storm stays to the south of the area on Sunday, bringing a late season snowstorm to parts of Virginia, temperatures will again stay on the cold side, peaking in the upper 30s to lower 40s across the area. Sunday night will be very cold, with low temperatures in the lower 10s inland and in the upper 10s as far as the immediate N/W suburbs of NYC.

More information will be posted on the longer range with tomorrow’s update, including warming temperatures and a storm late next week.
