Way Too Cold for April, Despite the Friday Sun…



Canadian air continues to funnel into the tri-state area as strong high pressure over the Midwest influences our weather.

Today will feature mainly sunny skies, but despite the bright skies readings will be cold for April. Highs will only be in the around 40º. That’s at least 15 degrees below the average high for the date.

Another cold one is on the way for tonight. All readings will be at or below freezing. A Freeze Watch is up for New York City, Nassau county and Eastern Union and Essex counties. The growing season has started in these areas, hence the watch. Thankfully the wind will have abated.

Typical early April conditions are expected for Easter Weekend. The sun will dominate Saturday. It may start off a bit grey for Easter but the sun will eventually return. High pressure to our South will be responsible for our decent conditions. Readings will get slightly above average by Sunday.

Monday and Tuesday will be bright and mild as high pressure remains in control.

Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
