A slow moving cold front will slowly cross the region this evening and tonight, producing scattered thunderstorms especially north and west of NYC. Seasonable conditions will return for the first half of this week, with two systems, one on Thursday, and another on Saturday-Sunday, affecting the region with additional showers and thunderstorms; a brief warmth surge may be possible on Saturday, but with sustained heat remaining nowhere in sight.
Saturday, July 27 Observations:
As Friday’s coastal low exited the region, a weak high pressure spread into the region, resulting in more sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures. Partly sunny skies were generally observed with high temperatures reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s in Long Island and southern CT, and the low to mid 80s from NYC and further north and west. The highest temperature was 87 degrees in Teterboro, NJ.
