NYC Quiet Stretch Continues & Weekend System Doesn’t Pan Out
Good morning everyone. Our quiet and mostly dry stretch continues for our work-week, and the much anticipated (by some) system due in this weekend simply doesn’t pan out the way imagined (by some). We’ll explain below why, and what to expect otherwise.
A weak disturbance slipping by today and representing a reinforcing shot of cool air, will touch off a widely scattered shower or flurry today. There should be enough cold air aloft to have a few flakes mixed in even in the low to mid 40’s if you were to find yourself in one of these scattered areas of precipitation.
Tomorrow we clear out and it’ll be low 40’s for pretty much most of the week except Thursday. Look for clouds and sun tomorrow, and those low 40’s will be in full swing.

More sun than clouds will reign on Wednesday with low 40’s again. Some colder air will sneak in overnight, then Thursday may struggle to hit 40. Sunny skies and dry conditions continue though.
On Friday, we modify back into the low to mid 40’s as we await the artifacts of our weekend system not coming together. Clouds will increase overnight Friday in regards.
As of now, all things indicate that the primary area of energy for the weekend gets suppressed well to our south and doesn’t time out correctly to merge with energy coming in from the upper Midwest. This will probably translate into a kind of cloudy and cool situation for us, with the slight chance of some light scattered showers or even a few flakes mixed in at some point this weekend. That would be caused by the detached and poorly organized energy coming through from the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.
Other than that, we continue to look down the road and see nothing major on the immediate horizon.
