News 12 Bronx/Brooklyn Weather Extra

  • So Long Sunshine

    The warmest day thus far in 2014 made Memorial Day feel like a winner. Despite water temperatures in the mid 50s, even coastal Brooklyn locations reached the 80s for the first time. That gorgeous weather comes to a screeching halt today with overcast skies returning. Slow-moving storms develop by 4pm. Temperatures cool off into the 50s and 60s tonight, not hitting 70 until Friday. Sunshine takes a hiatus until Thursday morning.
  • Picture perfect weekend weather

  • On the heels of a beautiful holiday weekend (see photo below), we are left to contend with showers and storms in time for the evening rush. Be sure to allow for extra travel time this evening. Aside from a few early morning showers on Wednesday, expect mostly cloudy skies and much cooler temperatures for the rest of the week. Anticipate a gradual warm up this weekend.
  • Too Chilly

    Just short of setting record highs yesterday, the overnight temperature for Thursday morning nears a new record low. Neither 50 degrees as a morning commute temperature, nor very low humidity is common for late May. The chilly spell only lasts until Friday, when highs climb back into the 70s. For today, clouds and cool, damp air rule the day's weather--including a midday shower. Tomorrow brings back the sun, but the chill remains. The weekend weather will be perfect: warm and dry, filled with sunshine. Next week brings back 80 degree warmth with showers by Tuesday.
  • Cool and Calm

    The dry, refreshing breezes today will feel like March, rather than May. Step into the shade midday, and the temp will drop dramatically. Under the mostly sunny skies, highs will only reach 65 today. Tonight is clear and once again chilly. Tomorrow brings back the sun into the afternoon warming us up to 75. Despite the brief shower in the forecast tomorrow evening, most the day is sunny and dry, with clear sky returning in time for your Friday night plans. The weekend is gorgeous!

  • CC

    Today's weather is a carbon copy of yesterday's weather. Cool, clouds, fog, mist and drizzle with late afternoon showers. Tomorrow is much warmer and humid with afternoon thunderstorms that could deliver another inch of rain. The weather clears out later Friday night (just before midnight) with gorgeous dry weather to begin the weekend. Your Father's Day forecast looks even better! Sunshine, balmy breezes and low humidity with 82 degrees will be the forecast for Dad.

  • Summerish

    Today will be the last dry and warm day before summerlike humidity returns tomorrow. Highs approach 90 by Tuesday afternoon. The weather gets steamy for Wednesday with oppressive heat (91) and humidity (tropical), but only for a day. Storms on Wednesday afternoon break the heat, bringing back drier and more comfortable weather for Thursday. Friday looks pleasant in the low 80s with sunshine. Summer begins at 6:51am Saturday, with clouds and some possible rain returning on Sunday (our first weekend featuring some rain in a while).
  • Last Day of School!

    Summer vacation begins when the school bell rings this afternoon for all public schools. How's the weather for this afternoon? Summery. Humidity keeps winding down, but there's still a shower threat into the afternoon. With the sun showers until this evening, look for rainbows after 4pm. Tomorrow brings drier weather with sunshine. The weekend will be perfect--highs in the low 80s and sunny. Get ready for some heat early next week. The heat should break with storms before the 4th.

  • First 90 Degree Day

    Yesterday, the climate station in Central Park was two degrees shy of 90. Today is sunnier and warmer, so we'll likely hit that benchmark by 3pm. Once the shower passes through the evening, that will make it feel steamy tonight. Arthur probably becomes a hurricane later today (when it develops an eye, where the greatest wind speeds are found), and almost reach Cat 2 status when is passes about 400 miles offshore from NYC Friday morning. Tomorrow is warm once again, with a storms after 5pm. Downpours, lightning an gusty winds can all accompany this evening's and tomorrow evening's storms. Friday is windy, cloudy with on/off showers. Blame Arthur. Rain clears by 8pm, so fireworks will be dry, but a cool breeze might make the weather feel cool. Winds blow the fireworks smoke south over Red Hook and Bay Ridge. Our 8th straight weekend of sunshine brings awesome weather, again. Cooling off at ocean beaches today through Sunday? Ocean will be rough, and surf will be dangerous to inexperienced swimmers with big rips and flash rip currents around jetties and piers. Want to stay out of harm's way? Pool it.
  • Brief Heat

    While still comfortable this morning, hot weather builds into the afternoon. Gusty winds from the Southwest, bring in the warm air quickly. Haze and humidity will make it feel like 90 this afternoon, 95 or better tomorrow. There's no rain today, but tomorrow could have a pop-up 10 minute t-storm. A line of showers and storms move through tomorrow night into Wednesday morning, helping to clear some humidity. Thursday looks even nicer. The pick of the week will be Friday and Saturday, as the weather will be equally as perfect as this past weekend. For now, Sunday might have some extra clouds. As far as prolonged heat, I don't see any "heat waves" in the next two weeks.
  • Could it Be?

    Our first heat wave? This hot weather just might barely qualify. Yesterday hit 90 in the park. If today reaches that mark, and tomorrow has a good shot too, well, that would make it official. Still, summer's past have been much warmer. This year featured one of our latest 90 degree starts. Beyond the passing 10 minute t-storm today (figure around 3pm), the skies stay mostly sunny with haze and high humidity. Just after sunset, some more storms return, further adding to the humidity. Tomorrow brings back extra clouds and late-day non-severe storms. Thursday and Friday will be dry and pleasant. Saturday looks good. Sunday may have some spotty showers.
  • And Just Like That…

    The weekend turns cloudy. Today will be even nicer than yesterday: all sunshine, all the time. Clouds roll in late tonight, however, making tomorrow look pretty grey. The weather system that sits over the Southern US will give cloudy skies to the boroughs most of this weekend. Though it won't rain, skies tomorrow afternoon in Brooklyn may looks ominous, as showers stay just offshore. Sunday morning also begins cloudy, but gradually turns brighter into the afternoon. Highs won't even reach 80 for the second half of the weekend. Monday and Tuesday are pleasantly warm, with storms back in the picture toward the end of next week.

  • Pure Sunshine

    After a Top 10 Summer day yesterday, the humidity comes back in small doses today. There is no threat of rain over the boroughs, only to the north and west. Muggy weather overnight leads to a big warm up tomorrow, and a threat of late-day storms Wednesday (not severe). Tomorrow will feel steamy at times. Any rain Thursday morning will clear out early, leaving a less humid and cooler finish to the day. Friday is the best day of the next 7, with mild air, and a dry afternoon with low humidity under mostly sunny skies. More questions than answers remain for Saturday, as the notion of a picture perfect weekend is fading under mostly cloudy skies, especially by Sunday. We'll revisit tomorrow….

    Next week has sun showers for Monday and maybe a storm by Tuesday, but the cool down into next Wednesday and Thursday will take the headlines as highs will stay WELL below average for the remainder of the month.
  • Sunshine in Soundview earlier today

  • Hazy, hot, and humid conditions have taken over our boroughs. With highs topping out in the upper 80s, it feels more like the mid to upper 90s. If you hate the heat and humidity, have no fear. Showers and thunderstorms are slated to arrive later this evening. The cold front that's set to accompany the wet weather will aid in knocking temps down a bit. So, cooler temps will be ushered in to our area to finish out the work week. Rain is expected to wrap up overnight with increasing sunshine to follow on Thursday.
  • A few scattered showers and storms are possible this evening. But, expect more in the way of wet weather to start on Saturday. With a lot of moisture being pumped in from the south, expect heavy rainfall in some areas. With that said, anticipate flooding in spots. As far as the tropics, Bertha continues to churn in the Caribbean. Islands that will be affected include portions of the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and D.R. Bertha will likely remain a tropical storm and will eventually ride up the eastern seaboard. Luckily, the storm will remain out to sea and won't make landfall in the U.S. However, Atlantic beaches may be impacted with large ocean swells.
  • Finally Summer!

    This week's weather can turn your frown upside down. After a relatively wet weekend, the month of July averaged temperatures a half degree below average. June was one degree above average. Precip is withing the average range, as well. Essentially, this summer is quite normal--it just seems cooler because past successive summers have been unusually hot. The summer-like heat and humidity that snow birds love is back today and tomorrow, with highs in the upper 80s Tuesday. Wednesday starts cloudy and rains with storms in the afternoon. The timing of the rain is perfect, since Bertha will be stirring up ocean waves at Brooklyn beaches midweek. Beyond Thursday morning's clouds, Thursday afternoon through Tuesday look stunning, with the best days being Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    The first half of August will feature the similar average weather to what this summer has provided so far, with a few warmer days by the end of the month.
    G'Morning everyone!

    A humid start to the day, risk of maybe a spot shower or storm later... Find out if your day is going to be a wash out or not at all. I have your full forecast (including a look at the upcoming weekend) up on News12 Traffic & Weather, Channel 61. --Meteorologist Jerry Manziello
  • Big Rains

    Today is your last chance to catch some sun, until Thursday. Monday's weather will mimic that of this past weekend, just a touch warmer, with slightly more humidity. Clouds creep in overnight, starting Tuesday overcast and cloudy. Muggy weather builds into tomorrow afternoon, with a spritz or sprinkle midday, only adding to the warm and humid feel. Rain begins late Tuesday night and intensifies into the morning. Wednesday morning's commute will feature downpours lasting into the midday. 1-3 inches of rain fall by Wednesday evening. That Autumn feel will be back as clear and cooler weather return for Thursday and Friday with mostly sunny skies. A mix of sun and clouds are on tap for the weekend, with some spotty showers nearby.
    So Much Rain Coming

    Since the last 9 days have been bone dry, even some days with very low humidity, the grass has been looking rather brown lately. In fact, our last soaking was almost a month ago on July 15th. It's no wonder a Brooklyn dust devil formed! Overcast skies greet you at the door this morning, with the first showers beginning this afternoon. None of the rain is heavy until after 10pm. Then, the heavens open up for downpours with thunder and lightning through tomorrow morning's rush. While 3 inches of rainfall is likely, 2 inches is a guarantee. All that dry, parched ground will prevent the water from absorbing easily, meaning most of the rain runs-off, only enhancing the flooding.

    Thursday and Friday brings back the dry weather, with gorgeous sun through Saturday. Sunday could have more clouds. 80s are on tap for all of next week.

    Summer's Not Over!

    Muggy weather returns today, with clouds building into the afternoon. Anticipate mostly cloudy skies and humid weather lasting through Saturday. While light sprinkles could be around early tomorrow, the best chance for rain is tomorrow night into Friday morning. Clouds and high humidity linger for the rest of Friday afternoon and evening. There's a chance of sunshine returning late Saturday afternoon, but the dry and sunny weather should prevail on Sunday. Monday is the beginning of the best days of Summer. 80s return for a solid stretch next week bringing sunshine and a summerlike feel to each and every day.


    The next few days are rather blegh. Clouds, showers, high humidity and a damp, grey feel will last through Saturday. Rain could be briefly heavy at times, but for the most part this is just a drizzly, spotty type of rain. Will this wet weather bring enough rain to quench our rainfall deficit? No. There will be less than half an inch total. Saturday night should begin to dry out. Sunday looks gorgeous with sunny, warm weather. Monday through Thursday of next week is sunny, warm and will feel like August! Cristobal will likely form in the coming days, bringing heavy rains to Puerto Rico and DR this weekend. Serious development may not occur until Monday when she is near the Bahamas.
    We are on track for seeing the hottest temperatures so far this year. As of 3PM this afternoon highs reached 92.This is the 3rd day so far this week that highs surpassed the 85 degree mark. More hot temps lie ahead, as highs will likely reach the mid to upper 80s through the remainder of the work week. There is still a good chance of temps hitting 90 degrees in the next few days.

    Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Winds will be SW-NW 5-10 MPH. The temperature will be 71 degrees.
    Mostly sunny skies. Winds will be NW 5-15 MPH. The temperature will be 86 degrees.
    Clear skies. Winds will be NW-W 5-10 MPH. The temperature will be 66 degrees.
    Mostly sunny skies. Highs near 85. Lows near 69.
    Hazy sunshine. Highs near 86. Lows near 71.
    Mostly cloudy. Chance of late-day thunderstorms. Highs near 84. Lows near 68.
    Morning showers giving way to increasing sunshine. Highs near 80. Lows near 65.
    Super Humid

    Today's weather turns hazy, hot and humid. Though air temperatures only reach 86, the steamy humidity will make it feel like the low 90s. All of that midday sunshine promotes instability, and that means passing storms later today. Once a quick hit or miss t-storm moves through by 6pm, the evening will feel even muggier, with clearing skies tonight. Tomorrow begins by feeling very damp, with breaks of sunshine throughout the morning and midday. The front that is forecast to pass through around 6pm tomorrow will enhance the threat of stronger storms with gusty winds being the primary concern. As the storms clear late tomorrow night, Sunday begins clear and stays dry with a September-like chill into Wednesday.

    I'm waiting to see whether some tropical moisure east of the Carolina's wants to develop into something significant. If so, that could bring back rain here as early as Monday night/Tuesday. TBD

    Expect another warm and muggy night as temps bottom out in the 70s. But, you can say goodbye to warm and humid air over the weekend. A cold front is slated to sweep across our boroughs - bringing along showers and storms on Saturday. In its wake, anticipate cooler air for the start of the week.
    Partly cloudy. Winds will be SSW 5-10 MPH. The temperature will be 73 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy. Chance of late-day thunderstorms. Winds will be SW 5-15 MPH. The temperature will be 88 degrees.
    Scattered thundershowers. Winds will be W-N 5-10 MPH. The temperature will be 67 degrees.
    Morning clouds giving way to more sun. Highs near 79. Lows near 62.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 77. Lows near 61.
    Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs near 76. Lows near 63.
    Mostly cloudy with a few light showers or sprinkles. Highs near 76. Lows near 66.
    Cloudy with periods of light rain. Highs near 79. Lows near 63.
    Autumn Feeling

    Fall begins two weeks from tomorrow. This morning already feels like fall thanks to a cooler, east wind. The winds pick up today, keeping the afternoon high in the mid-70s, but that will also increase the cloud cover. Mist and sprinkles might even be around tonight. Tomorrow will have some extra clouds and still gusty winds. Highs stay in the 70s with a damp breeze until midweek. Tides are higher than normal around high tide tonight (9pm Brooklyn, 11pm Bronx) due to the full moon and wind direction. This high water occurs around every high tide cycle through Wednesday. We should finally clear out Thursday and warm up to 80. Friday could be stormy, and the weekend may be unsettled. I'll have more certainty on the weekend weather by Wednesday.
    Too Soon

    Sooner or later it was bound to happen. In fact, a morning low of 60 is quite average during the second week of September. But 50s? Come on. After a warmer day Thursday, with highs in the low 80s, we'll wake up to mid 50 degree weather this weekend. Still worse is that highs struggle to reach 70 both days this weekend thanks to mostly cloudy skies. This trend lasts for at least the next 10 days.
    Welcome Fall!
    Weekend Answers

    The forecast looks much better today in more ways than one! Today, those stubborn clouds from yesterday begin to clear by late morning. Sunny breaks of blue by midday, leads to a brighter and warmer afternoon with continued improving skies. Tomorrow starts partly sunny and clouds hang somewhat low during the morning as rays of sunshine break through. Tomorrow morning will be muggy and warm, with highs reaching the low 80s by the end of the day. After 3pm, rain arrives, lasting into the evening commute. Skies clear with a drier, seasonal chill that brings back the sun for Friday. I finally have some answers for the weekend weather as opposed to the uncertainty I expressed yesterday and the day before: Saturday starts chilly, with clouds building into the afternoon. Rain returns for the second half of the day, even making Saturday night plans wet and chilly. Sunday looks great, but even colder. Wake up weather will be in the 50s on Sunday!

    Summer Throwback

    After 8am, today will turn sunny, hazy, humid and warm. Highs reach 82. Storms arrive today after 3pm, with spotty t-storms until 7pm. A drier overnight brings back the fall chill. Tomorrow morning starts chilly and dry with less humidity and sunshine lasting all day. Saturday is crummy and raw, while Sunday is gorgeous. Monday into next week is seasonably cool.

    Last Week of Summer

    There are 7 days until Fall and 100 days until Christmas. Many fear that the weather will begin to feel like December before it even feels like October. As the cool weather seemed to arrive early this year, following an average summer, you may wonder if this winter will be terrible. Probably not. Climatologically, a pattern of horrible winter, followed by an average summer, and then a cool fall typically means an upcoming normal or mild winter. Since we'll try to enjoy this last week of summer, forecast lows will be around 10 degrees below average. This morning features clouds and spotty showers, followed by sunshine. Does that sun warm us up? Not really. By Thursday and Friday, Highs won't pass 68 degrees. The weekend is warmer, in the 70s, with sunny skies.
    The last day of summer on Monday, could bring back some wet weather.
    Seesaw Temperatures

    Today goes up, tomorrow goes down. The weekend goes way up, and next week goes way down. Without much humidity, there isn't enough moisture in the atmosphere to stabilize temperatures between day and night. In addition, the cold front arriving tonight brings back a much cooler than normal start on Friday, even for late September. With Summer's final bow this weekend, the beaches are actually a great option! Water temperatures remain in the low 70s--warmer than they were in mid-July. While Saturday will be cloud-free and 76, Sunday's highs will be in the low 80s with thin clouds arriving midday. A chilly and wet start to next week provides an appropriate arrival of Fall. The seasons change at 10:28pm Monday night. Next week turns drier with very chilly mornings.


    As we enter the statistical peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, there is a calm, quiet, storm-free week (and weekend!) ahead. Satellites don't even show a suspicious gathering of clouds for a hurricane hunter to investigate. Nada. The weather in the borough is quiet and cool as well with three highlights: chilly mornings followed by afternoon sun through Wednesday. Thursday brings overcast conditions with muggy and mild air, likely no rain. Warm, summerlike sunshine returns for the weekend.

    Windy Drizzle

    Today's chilly wind will be more of an annoyance than anything else. Gusts will be near 30 mph. Spotty morning showers keep the air feeling damp, and chilly weather adds to the raw feel. Dry and warmer weather returns tomorrow after some early fog. The weekend gets HOT!
    Summerlike Weekend!

    Today's sunrise is 6:47am, and the sunset is 6:47p. A warmup this weekend almost makes you wish the sun would set later in the evening; however, until December 21st, the night hours will become longer than daylight hours. Today is a weekend preview: mostly sunny skies and a dry north wind creates a beautiful warm up to near 80. Both Saturday and Sunday soar beyond 80 degrees. A seasonal chill returns Tuesday with showers.

    Today's skies turn grey after a mostly sunny morning. Some overnight clouds acted like a blanket, trapping in the heat from the weekend's warm weather. Highs today warm to the upper 70s with sensible humidity. The earliest rain should hold off until tomorrow. Even still, it won't be much rain at all--likely just sprinkles tomorrow and Wednesday. The rain threats ends by Thursday with mostly sunny skies and a cooler feel. Saturday looks wet. The really chilly stuff comes next week.


    Humid and cloudy weather continues today. Spotty light showers return later this morning. It will rain on and off with intermittent drizzle throughout the afternoon; however, the air won't feel chilly. Slightly cooler weather moves in tonight, with another round of clouds and shower tomorrow. Thursday begins to clear out for good with an abundance of sunshine that afternoon. Friday is gorgeous (almost like this past weekend). Saturday bring back much need rainfall, up to an inch. Sunday is dry and cool.

    The Sun!

    Dust off those sunglasses! The sunshine returns today. After 3 days of persistent cloud cover, the brighter shades of blue will FINALLY be back across the sky. It doesn't last long, though. Around midnight tonight, rain returns, and the wet weather lasts through most of the day tomorrow. Even some thunderstorms might pour down on your Saturday afternoon plans. The rain ends tomorrow evening with a bitter chill for Sunday morning: it will feel like the upper 40s with the wind chill. Monday morning is also quite chilly, despite highs reaching the low 70s Monday afternoon. Rain next week is on Wednesday.

    An Early Chill

    Dry air can do some wacky things with temperatures, creating big swings between hot and cold. Case in point: yesterday's highs only reached 60. While this morning is actually colder (at 45) than yesterday's wake up temperature, highs today climb to 70. That's a 25 degree difference between day and night, with no change in the weather pattern. Tonight sees more clouds and a possible sprinkle, but most of the light rain fall tomorrow night. Since Tuesday is in between weather systems, tomorrow is mostly cloudy and mild with a touch of humidity. Wednesday and Thursday are dry and clear. Friday brings back some light showers. The weekend is sunny and beautiful; however, some clouds return late Sunday afternoon.
    Breezy Sunshine

    This morning started warm, but windy. Those gusts could reach 30 mph today, with mostly sunny skies. As the winds relax tonight, temps cool off to the low 50s. Tomorrow is cool and clear, warming to the upper 60s. Friday starts grey, with rain arriving before the lunch hour, and rain lasting into your Friday night plans. Saturday may start with an early shower, but anticipate clearing by the afternoon. The remainder of the weekend is sunny.
    21 Degrees

    The typical morning low for Oct 15th is 50 degrees. This morning: 71. While the humidity goes higher today, temperatures climb into the upper 70s under mostly cloudy skies. After some midday drizzle, about an inch of wind-driven rain begins falling tonight, peaking in intensity just before tomorrow morning's commute. Rain is over before noon tomorrow, with no more than 2 inches expected. There might even be some sunny breaks Thursday afternoon. Friday morning turns much cooler despite the sunshine. Weekend is breezy and chilly. That frost line dips further South down the Hudson Valley on Monday morning, coming pretty close to the boroughs.
    Cool Down Begins

    After the 1-2 inches of rain that fell early this morning and created some flooding enhanced by leaf-clogged sewer grates, the sunshine returns in patchy breaks by 10am. First, we'll get rid of the humidity. The several days of muggy air becomes drier this afternoon, making today's 71 feel closer to September, versus August. Tomorrow morning starts cool in the upper 50s, still about 10 degrees above average. The weekend gets chilly and finally brings back the October air with low 40s in the morning, and low 60s in the afternoon.

    Wind Chill

    Our coldest start yet, some neighborhoods are waking up to 38 degrees this morning! In addition, the light breeze makes the wind chill feel like 36. The boroughs escaped the frost/freeze warnings that were posted to our North and West so pollen is still an issue this week, especially mold. Beyond the morning sunshine, thin clouds return this afternoon veiling skies in a shade of milky white. Temperatures remain in the 50s today because of this. Light sprinkles tonight follow the early, and cloudy sunset. Tomorrow begins milder than this morning, but damp, with spot showers most of tomorrow. The forecast for the rest of the week: mostly cloudy with spotty showers, highs around 60. Clearing occurs this weekend, and temperatures warm up once more (early next week), before taking a plunge into Halloween, marathon weekend.


    Wind chills this morning made it feel like 31 degrees. Sunshine all day warms the temperature 8 degrees higher than yesterday. Winds will be gusty, but not as windy as yesterday. Tomorrow brings back the 60s. Wednesday will be the mildest day, with clouds. Rain returns for Wednesday night/Thursday morning. There's another shower chance on Friday. Weekend is sunny!
