Brief Forecast Overview:
Following this morning’s cold front which brought widespread showers, a colder air mass returned into the region today, with chilly temperatures sticking in place through the rest of this week into most of next week. In this time period, high temperatures will generally remain in the mid 40s to low 50s across the area. Lows will start out tonight in the mid 20s to low 30s away from NYC, with mid 30s in NYC and the immediate coast, although will gradually warm towards the weekend and next week into the low to upper 30s away from NYC, with upper 30s to low 40s in NYC and the immediate coast. Mostly to partly sunny skies will continue through the weekend.
The forecast becomes more uncertain next week with a coastal storm, with some models keeping the storm south of the region while others show rain reaching the Northeast. With the pattern in place, this storm will generally be slow moving; increased cloud cover and possibly rain are expected for early-mid next week, with the storm likely to exit the region towards late next week.
