This is the first post on my new website which will be more New York City focused. This joins the family of Meteorologistjoecioffi.com and Weatherlongisland.com. You will see pieces from me here as well as Meteorologist Geoff Bansen who is helping me with this. Don’t forget to like his facebook page which is on the sidebar.
Okay so let’s begin with tonight’s weather which is gloomy with lots of low clouds and some patchy drizzle around. We will see that strong upper low on the satellite loop to the west begin to slowly move northeast on Sunday but skies may not brighten up until Monday. Other than some patchy light rain or drizzle we should be mostly dry going forward.
Radars for the most part are showing just a few showers or sprinkles and there are no organized rain areas to the south. Weather conditions should improve enough Monday to allow for some breaks of sun. Sunday’s highs will be a little higher than today reaching the mid to upper 60s. Monday we could be back into the 70s.
Long range of course will depend on Hurricane Matthew. Here is the latest from the National Hurricane Center. For more on Hurricane Matthew and the long range outlook and whether it is a threat to the east coast, check meteorologistjoecioffi.com for the latest posts.
