WINDY NYC WEDNESDAY QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT WARM SATURDAY
WINDY NYC WEDNESDAY QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT WARM SATURDAY – Good morning everyone and welcome to winter in spring! We have Wind Advisories up as the cold air moves in regardless of the strong, late March sun. Winds in the area will be blowing at 25-35mph sustained and we may have some gusts reaching 45+mph. We already saw our highs today and temperatures will continue to fall through the 30’s and into the 20’s by late evening. Clear skies and wind continues tonight, but will settle down just below advisory level by late evening. Wind chills will be in the teens as lows get down to the low 20’s and maybe even some teens as lows N&W of the NYC area and typically colder spots on Long Island.
Tomorrow, winds will still be a bit brisk, but not as bad as today. The sun will remain with us and temperatures will modify somewhat into the low to mid 40’s for highs. On Friday, a warm front begins to approach the area and we’ll have clouds and the threat of a few light showers while we transition into the warmer sector of a stretched out system; highs in the upper 40’s to near 50. Questions remain about Saturday as we wait to see how far north the warm air can push beyond our area. If we remain cloudy, we’ll see highs in the mid 50’s to lower 60’s, but if we can squeeze out a decent amount of sun and the front pushes well north of us, we can see temps 65 to even 75 in some areas. Because of the games back-door fronts and our marine influence like to play, we must wait and see what happens as the day plays out on Saturday.
Rain moves back in Saturday night into Sunday and so does the cool air. We’ll have lows in the upper 30’s Saturday night with cloudy skies and a cold rain; then mid 40’s Sunday and Monday with more rain and even a few wet snowflakes possibly mixed in on Monday depending on the dynamics; there is no accumulation expected whatsoever. Mid week next week, we have to wait and see if this system continues to stick around as high pressure tries to block it’s departure and there may not be any steering mechanisms strong enough to kick it out. If this happens, cool air, clouds, and light showers will stick around for a few days. If we’re able to kick it on out, we could see some milder air work it’s way back in and give us some near or just above normal temps.
Stay tuned as we focus on trying to answer the warm air questions for Saturday, and then we’ll deal with next week as we see if this system gets hung up or not.
WINDY NYC WEDNESDAY QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT WARM SATURDAY – Cold air spills in from up north as our next weather-maker gathers up in the upper mid-west. That system will bring the threat of severe weather into the mid-west and may give us a warm day on Saturday.
Aside from some light snow in Maine and a few snow showers SE of the Finger Lankes region of New York, things are quiet.
