NYC TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS CONTINUE
NYC TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS CONTINUE
NYC TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS CONTINUE – Good morning everyone. Colder air has once again moved back in to give us a seasonably cold day today, hovering at or slightly below normal. However, with this pattern we’ve been having, if you don’t like the weather, just wait another day for what you’re looking for.
Today will be sunny with mid to upper 30’s, but it won’t last long as our northerly breeze flips to the southeast; a precursor for warmer air approaching. We cloud up tonight and our highs today should mirror our lows overnight with little to no drop. Look for sun and clouds tomorrow, mild, and highs near 50.
I said a few days ago that Wednesday would be the nicest day of the week, but it won’t be the warmest, just precip free. Rain moves in Wednesday night with an even warmer push at the hands of an approaching system. This will help pump in temps near 60 on Thursday, with mostly cloudy skies and the slight chance of some rain. Depending on whether we see some sun or not, look for mid to upper 50’s with lack of sun, 60-65 if we see more sun than expected.
Rain moves back in Thursday night with the approaching cold front, but it’ll be a slow-mover, so expect some leftover rain in Friday, especially in the morning. We could have a delay on Friday in terms of the approach of colder air, so as of now, we should see mid 50’s, possibly dropping throughout the day into the 30’s.
Friday night is definitely looking much colder, with mid to upper 20’s in the NYC area, but teens to low 20’s in surrounding areas. On Saturday, we are seasonably cold again with mid to upper 30’s, then we await the approach of some leftover energy left behind from Friday’s departing system. We’re too far away at this point, but it has the potential to give us some frozen precip if the timing and path are “right”.
In the end though and looking into the long range, the cold wave is short and the overall path of air masses will help bring along another warmup. This could be the one I was talking about in terms of more spring-like temps due to the Southeast beginning to warm up. What would’ve been 60’s and 70’s last year with some of these systems, ended up being 40’s to near 50 due to a frigid start to our winter this year. Now it seems that the south is starting to finally recover, giving us a chance for warmer air given any westward approach.
One important caveat though – with any warm days expected in the next week or two, the maritime push will be strong; potentially setting us up for some dense fog and locally cooler temps, especially at the coast. So I’d remain skeptical as to how warm we can actually achieve. Remember, no matter how many naysayers there are out there who say that we didn’t have a winter and it’s not how it used to be, the water never lies. We are at 34-37 degrees in most areas and that is well below normal for this time of year. This will help fuel back door cold fronts, sea breezes, and dense fog whenever we have the potential for a mild push that wants to stick around for more than a day or two.
