NYC DEEP SPRING WEATHER TODAY TOMORROW
Good morning everyone! Seasonable spring weather has returned temporarily after an epic journey through the gloom we can experience here. Meanwhile, we’ll have another slow moving series of fronts heading our way, and Mother’s Day weekend is beginning to come into focus a little better.
First and foremost, like an explorer spotting land for the first time, relief and excitement has filled the hearts of many as sunshine finally returns. We’ll have a beautiful day today, with sun and clouds, a light northerly flow, and highs near 70. Depending on the amount of sunshine and when the northerlies subside, will dictate if we creep into the 70’s. For now, we’ll remain conservative, but keep the potential out there.
Tomorrow, we’ll have a sunny start, then a weak cold front begins to drape down from the Great Lakes and up in Canada. I think we get enough sun into the area and remain on the right side of the boundary, to go well into the 70’s tomorrow. The more sunshine we get, the higher we go. Again, we’ll stay conservative and keep things at low to mid 70’s for now, but don’t be surprised if we up things towards the 75-80 range if the sun and wind profile behave. (cooler along the south-facing shores)
Because of the approaching front and warmer weather, we could also touch off an afternoon shower or storm. The best chance for that will be tomorrow evening/night as that front actually passes through, but most of the energy may go north and east of us. We’ll be keeping an eye on that with a cooler and drier Wednesday in the works.
For Wednesday, we’re on the cooler side of the airmass, but at least we’re dry and not gloomy. Expect sun and clouds, with mid to upper 60’s as highs. That’ll put us slightly below average, but still “seasonably cool” territory.
The gloom begins to slowly return as we begin to cloud up Wednesday night, then finish the process on Thursday with a cool and cloudy day. As of now, we’ll be lucky if we reach the low 60’s Thursday, with the familiar chance of a shower at any point in the day, especially in the afternoon and beyond.
It looks as if the big batch of rain comes in Thursday night and Friday, then showers linger through Friday night. As we get closer, we’ll pinpoint the timing each day. If we can get the big stuff through before Friday afternoon, and keep the next round of rain (representing the cold front) to our west, 70’s could be possible Friday.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
For your Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday is looking drier and safer for outdoor activities as time goes on. That system should be gone by late Friday night, and we should have a nice dose of sunshine on Saturday before clouds return on Sunday. Expect seasonably cool to seasonable temps on Saturday with upper 60’s to low 70’s.
On Mother’s Day, a weak system will approach from our west, but timing is still suspect. We could actually squeeze a dry day out of this one, although it probably won’t be gorgeous. At this moment, we’ll say more clouds and sun, chance of a shower, and upper 60’s. Things can certainly change for Sunday, so we’ll watch closely.
In the long range, we remain active, but at least things are on the move better than this past week. Spring wants to break out in the worst way and there is PLENTY of warm air available, but for now, we’ll have to take it in 2-3 day doses in between slow moving systems.
There are no powerful systems on the horizon, which is a double-edged sword. Without a strong cold front and round of strong/severe weather, or a mid-spring Nor’easter, there are no definitive air masses and strong high pressure systems to clear the air and get things moving pattern-wise.
So for now, we linger in this malaise of slow moving, weak systems, with fairly consistent sunshine and warm weather parked just our south and west.
