– Brief updates will continue through Wednesday or Thursday. By Thursday or Friday at the latest, regular daily discussions will be resumed.
– My November outlook will be posted in the Long Range Forecasts page tomorrow, discussing the warm up for the first half of this month and what may come for the second half of the month.
Brief Forecast Update:
– A weak coastal low pressure will stay mainly offshore tomorrow, possibly scraping parts of the area with light rain. With the cold air mass retreating by this time, no snow will fall out of this storm. Otherwise, mostly cloudy skies are expected with high temperatures peaking in the mid 50s across most of the area.
– Wednesday and Thursday will bring mainly sunny skies with temperatures slightly warming up into the upper 50s across most of the area. Parts of the NYC area are likely to reach the lower 60s on Thursday, breaking the 60 degree mark for the first time since last Wednesday.
– Another low pressure will approach the region for Friday. Currently, the models keep this storm to the south of the area, but the potential is there for this storm to trend stronger and bring more widespread rain for the area on Friday and potentially into early Saturday. No heavy rain is expected, however. Temperatures will cool back down towards the mid 50s.
– Behind this potential storm, a strong high pressure will move in for the weekend, most likely bringing sunny skies for the second half of Saturday into Sunday. High temperatures will gradually warm up into the upper 50s to mid 60s by Sunday, with cold overnight lows, likely dropping into the mid 20s to lower 30s north and west of NYC.
Tomorrow’s update will discuss the outlook for this week/weekend, as well as next week and the longer range, in more details.
