Two systems will influence our weather through Friday. A low in the Western Atlantic and high pressure over Southeastern Canada. Confidence in the forecast has now increased as time closes in on the event.
On and off rain will be with us for today as the Atlantic storm throws moisture well ahead of it. It’ll be breezy.
It looks like enough dry area will work in from the North from the Canadian high to keep much of the day dry on Thursday, especially from the NYC vicinity and to the West. Eastern sections may stay in the rain shield the majority of the day.
The models now take the storm between 100 to 200 miles Southeast of Montauk Point Late Thursday. This will be it’s closest proximity to our area. There will be a strong pressure gradient between the high and the low. This will result in windy conditions both Thursday and Friday. The heaviest rain and highest winds look to be over Eastern Long Island and Eastern Connecticut. Gusts around 50mph are possible. Winds will gust between 30-45mph over the rest of the tri-state coastal area. The heaviest rain will also be over Eastern sections with 1″-3″ of rain possible. Lighter amounts will fall in the City and to the West.
Coastal flooding is a concern Thursday and Friday. Those areas that are most vulnerable to tidal flooding should be on alert.
The storm will slowly drift to the South and then out to sea later Friday. Any rain Friday morning will taper off.
The weekend looks decent with a mix of sun and clouds and near seasonal readings, which is in the mid 60s.
Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
