Mid-Spring Breaks Out In New York City Area
Good morning everyone. We have an absolutely stunning day today in the New York City Metro Area as we enter mid-Spring and further break out of the funk. We also thread the needle tomorrow, pulling off a decent day before our next system arrives. Memorial Day Weekend remains in question, but we string together some nice days down the road.
Typically, we remain in a funk in the NYC area through late May/early June, so take these nice days where you can get them. For today, look for full sunshine, low humidity, and clear blue skies, highs in the mid 70’s in most spots. Today is as “storybook” spring as you can pull off up here.
Tomorrow, we introduce some clouds and increase the humidity a little bit (still in the comfortable range though) as our next system approaches from the west. A southerly flow will keep things cooler at the south facing shores, but most areas will mid 70’s again. If we see more sun than clouds, especially before 2pm, we could see some upper 70’s to near 80 temps pop.
We’ll have the chance of some scattered showers and storms late Sunday night and into Monday, but not everyone will see the action. We could also see some stubborn morning fog on Monday, especially at the coast, as the warmest air of this airmass tries to push in.
Everything as far as our humid highs on Monday remain sunshine-dependent, but 80-85 temps are certainly possible if we see some sun. If we miraculously see extra sun, don’t be surprised to see some upper 80’s in the notoriously warmer spots; but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because extra clouds and fog on the flip-side would mean mid to upper 70’s.
We’ll just keep an eye on it all and adjust as we need.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Tuesday and Wednesday remain looking beautiful, dry, and seasonably cool/comfortable. For those who don’t like the 80’s, this will be a little bit of a relief as we get back into the near 70 to low 70 range.
Thursday continues to look so-so as an area of energy swings by, connected to a much larger system out west. This will give us a period of scattered showers late Wednesday night and into Thursday, but should clear the way for a nice Friday and maybe part of Saturday.
For Memorial Day Weekend, the rest of that system arrives some time on Saturday/Saturday night as of now. If it clears the area, we could see a nice and spring-like Sunday and Monday, but it’s too early at the moment to make the call.
Memorial Day Weekend in our area is notoriously volatile and it’s very rare that we string together 3 perfect days. Look for more of the same, but I don’t think the holiday weekend is a total loss in any respect. If I were a betting man, 2 out of 3 days should be ok, with 1 questionable day/timeframe.
