SUNNY MILD NORTHEAST TODAY COOLER TOMORROW
Good morning everyone. Sunny skies dominate the area today as our big system well to the south will scoot off of the coast and go well out to sea. Quiet and comfortable weather is the story for most of the week, with the slight chance of some light mixed precip or cold rain overnight Thursday and into Friday as a “warmer” airmass returns.
The forecast remains simple for the week, with sunny skies and mild temps today; highs in the 50-55 range throughout much of the City, upper 40’s to low 50’s for Long Island.
The precip you see on the radar down by NC won’t make it any further north, clearing the way for a nice Christmas Eve Day. Sunny skies remain, but we’re slightly cooler with a northerly flow. Expect low to mid 40’s.
Christmas Day is pretty much a carton copy of Tuesday, with sunny skies and low to mid 40’s.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
A few clouds begin to creep in for Thursday, but we’ll still see more sun than clouds till overnight. Highs again in the low to mid 40’s, and we remain dry throughout the day.
With a warmer airmass moving in Thursday night and into Friday, that transition period could bring us a few scattered light sprinkles or mixed precip. There’s nothing to be concerned about as we remain above freezing overnight Thursday, but some valleys and higher elevations well north and west of NYC could see some slippery spots Friday morning IF there’s any precip at all. Highs Friday in the low to mid 40’s as well.
On Saturday, we find ourselves ahead of a broad system, and it’s looking like the nicest day of the weekend so far. Sunny skies return and we should see upper 40’s to low 50’s.
Sunday, clouds increase as that system nears. We’ll have the slight chance of some scattered showers, but I think the main batch of precip holds off till next Monday. Highs Sunday in the upper 40’s to low 50’s. If we’re able to pull off some extra sunshine and no rain, we may be able to bump that up to the 50-55+ range.
