NYC Warm Sunny Independence Day
Good morning everyone. We have the perfect day unfolding in the NYC area to celebrate our independence today. Morning fog still dots the area in spots, but that’ll burn off rather quickly. We’ll also have a pretty good shot at some shower and thunderstorm action on Saturday, that’ll give us some needed rain before the sun, very warm, and dry conditions return.
Thunderstorms will stay away from us today as winds go SE and most of the lift is confined to inland spots, especially central PA and western NY state. That’ll equate to a sunny, humid, and very warm day for us today. Look for highs in the upper 80’s to near 90.
It’ll be perfect to celebrate and watch fireworks, but watch the fog returning overnight. If you’re on the water with a boat, watch the fireworks and get back to port before the fog rolls back in.
For tomorrow, we increase the clouds, moisture, and even the humidity. Fog will eventually lift mid to late morning, then we’ll have more clouds than sun, and the slight chance of a shower or storm; highs in the mid to upper 80’s.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Saturday remains our best chance of rain, with numerous showers and storms possible from late morning onward. You won’t see the hail producing action we saw last weekend, but we could see some localized flooding, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. Highs Saturday a muggy upper 80’s to near 90.
Our Sunday forecast is also holding strong as we dry out humidity-wise and bring back the sunshine in increments. We still have the chance of a few instability showers or storms. Those individual cells will be capable of some small hail, but they will be widely scattered in nature and mostly confined to inland spots. We’ll be watching the radar as usual in the afternoon. Highs a comfortable mid 80’s.
