Decent Start to the Workweek. Rain on the Way…

Synopsis:

High pressure will slip off the Eastern seaboard today. This will result in mainly sunny skies with high clouds rolling in during the afternoon (FutureCast cloud-cover above). A large low pressure system will continue to intensify in the mid-section of the country and move to the Northern Plains Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm will allow a warm front to move in to the region Tuesday.  A one, two shot of rain is expected.  The first round of rain will occur on Tuesday. It’ll feel more like Spring with a Southerly wind.  A cool front will approach on Wednesday-November’s finale, with the second shot of rain developing during the afternoon. Highs on Wednesday will be in the lower 60s! Skies will finally clear out for December’s debut on Thursday.  It won’t feel like December though. Readings will be well into the 50s. The total rainfall has the potential to be significant, this will hopefully help the drought situation.  Snow lovers you’re going to have to wait.  Looking down the pike it does look to get active and much colder as we head into December-stay tuned.

Monday:

Sunny skies.  Highs clouds will work in later in the day.  Highs in the lower 50s.  Winds becoming South at 5mph.

Tonight:

Thickening clouds. Temperatures will actually rise through the 40s and be around 50º in the City by morning. Southeast wind at 5mph.

Tale of Two Seasons This Weekend…

 

Synopsis:

It’ll be the tale of two seasons this weekend.  The warm bubble of high pressure moving off the coast will give us one more Spring-like day today.  A powerful cold front will move through tonight and usher in the coldest air of the season on strong West Northwest winds; it’ll feel like Winter on Sunday.  Snow showers are possible later tonight over the Northern suburbs.  A Wind Advisory has been posted for areas to the West of the City for later tonight and Sunday (These advisories will most likely cover the City and areas to the East later today).  Wind gusts of 45-50mph are quite possible.  Temperatures on Sunday will be almost 20º colder than today.  Factor in the wind and the wind chills will be in the 30s.  A major shock to the body.

Today:

Mostly sunny and warm. Highs in the mid 60s. Cooler at the coast. Northwest wind at 5mph.

May Feel For Friday…

 

screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-2-56-42-pm

Synopsis:

A warm stretch is on the way through Saturday. It will not feel like mid November as high pressure builds over the East coast with the lack of any cold air. In fact, today’s highs in the mid to upper 60s is the average temperature for early May!  Saturday will be the last hoorah for the usual warmth. An energized trough will develop along the East coast by Sunday. This will most likely bring down some of the coldest air this season so far and possibly some snow showers.

Even though parts of the tri-state area received some beneficial rain the last week which helped the dry conditions for those areas, many areas went almost rain-free.  Conditions have now advanced to Extreme drought over the mid-hudson valley.  Parts of Western NJ are border-line extreme as well.  Rainfall deficits for the year range from six to fifteen inches.  Reservoir levels are about 20% lower than the normal capacity of 75% for this time of the year.   No major rainfall is expected for the next 5 days.

Today:

Sunny and warm. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.  The record high is 73º.  The average high is 53º. Northwest wind at 5mph.

Tonight:

Clear. Lows near 50º in the City, the 30s inland. Northest wind at 5 mph.

Saturday:

Partly sunny with readings in the mid 60s.

Sunday:

More clouds than sun, windy and much colder.  Scattered rain and snow showers are possible.  Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s.

Monday:

Partly sunny and chilly. Highs will be in the mid 40s.  Wind chills will be in the 30s.

Tuesday:

Mostly sunny with below average temperatures . Highs will be in the mid 40s.  Wind chills will be in the 30s.
