    Foggy & Soggy

    This morning feels tropical for mid November. Wake up temperatures are hovering around 60 with zero visibility in many locations. This afternoon brings back sunshine and our last mild day above 60 degrees, for at least the next 10 days. (We won't even climb above 50 for the forseeable future). This afternoon will feel wonderful! The fact about this cold shot of air isn't the intensity, rather the duration. Most nights will be below freezing, nearing record lows. Flurries are likely on Friday afternoon, but cold air could cause issues on Monday depending on where the rain goes. Ice might be an issue with temperatures around freezing on Monday, puddles forming and a hard freeze to follow into Tuesday.
    A series of a cold fronts will arrive and knock temps down 20-30 degrees from where they’ve been the past few days. As we head into Thursday highs will struggle to get out of the 40s. The a big concern will be overnight lows eventually falling below the freezing mark. These bone chilling conditions will likely last into next week, so be sure to bundle up.

    Partly cloudy. Winds will be NNW 10-15 MPH. The temperature will be 41 degrees.
    Sunshine followed by increasing clouds. Winds will be NNW 5-10 MPH. The temperature will be 50 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Winds will be NNW 10-15 MPH. The temperature will be 38 degrees.
    Morning clouds giving way to more sun. Highs near 45. Lows near 31.
    A mix of sun and clouds. Highs near 46. Lows near 33.
    Cloudy skies. Highs near 48. Lows near 38.
    Cloudy with periods of light rain. Highs near 45. Lows near 35.
    Mostly cloudy and windy. Highs near 41. Lows near 29.

    If you're up after midnight, you MIGHT see a few flakes mixed in with tonight's light rain. While raindrops typically cool the air on the way down to the ground from the clouds (thus making surprise snow), there's not enough moisture or cold air to make tonight's few flakes stick around. The timing is off: the rain is gone before the cold air arrives. Actually, tonight's rain moves out so fast, that tomorrow will start sunny at 6:41am! Back to today--after the sunny start, the rest of today is cloudy and chilly. Highs won't crack 50. Tomorrow is sunny all day with highs in the mid 40s, while Saturday is just as pretty, but cold. Cloudy skies return on Sunday with rain on Monday. Then, the second round of even COLDER air moves in for Tuesday and the rest of next week.

    Broken and Tied

    Record lows were set yesterday morning, but more impressively, record low maximums were tied last night as well. When the daily high temperature doesn’t climb to a certain threshold, that creates a new record low maximum. For instance, yesterday the temperature never warmed above 37 at JFK and 35 at LGA. The 132 year old record was nearly tied at Central Park; however, due to the warmer air moving in just before midnight, yesterday’s high officially reached 36. The old record was 34 set in 1882.

    This morning’s weather doesn’t feel that cold as compared to yesterday. The air temperature is 37, while the light wind only brings the wind chill down to 30. We’ll reach low 40s today with a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon. Another round of bitterly cold air brings back the harsh feel tomorrow morning. Forget about the 40s again until the weekend. Highs on Sunday and Monday warm to 52 and 62 respectively. Granted, there will be showers most of Monday. Chilly air returns for Wednesday into the holiday weekend.

    Weekend Warm-up!

    While this morning’s wind chills make it feel nearly as cold as two days ago, this afternoon’s abundant sunshine will help highs climb just above freezing. Tomorrow isn’t THAT warm, just a few ticks warmer than today; however, the real heat comes on Sunday and especially Monday, where highs will be 5 degrees away from record highs. Talk about a wild swing in just a few days. Even though we’ll be looking forward to a relief from the biting wind and cold, next week starts rainy. Tuesday and Wednesday lose about 10 degrees each day, respectively. This will bring Thanksgiving’s temperature down to average with lots of sun and little wind, perfect flying weather for the balloons.

    Warm and Windy

    After the half inch of rain that fell early this morning, sunshine returns this afternoon and highs will climb into the low 70s. Gusty winds howl up to 50mph today with a muggy, humid feel. Tonight is mild, with a cool down to only 53 tomorrow morning. Temperatures keep dropping Tuesday, under partly sunny skies. Wednesday morning starts wet with light rain at daybreak, mixing with snow and sleet throughout the late morning. Accumulations should be noticeable by the early afternoon. Likely an inch or two of slushy wet snow/sleet is on the ground by Wednesday evening. If snow changeover occurs earlier Wednesday morning, then the borough sees 2-4 inches of wet snow by Wednesday night—but as of now, even that’s worst case scenario. Travel on Thanksgiving day will be unaffected with chilly sunshine all day.

    We are still on track for a messy travel day on Wednesday. A winter storm advisory will be in effect for the Bronx and Brooklyn through 1am Thursday. There are warnings in place for points north and west of the city.

    Rain is set to begin by daybreak with a transition to snow between 10am and noon. Surface temps are pretty warm so don’t expect much snow to stick at first. As temps cool, snow is expect to cover the roads. It will be a very slippery commute, so be careful. With overnight lows dropping to near freezing, anticipate icing. If you want to avoid the mess, you’re better off traveling Tuesday night or waiting until Thanksgiving. Expect a mixture of sun and clouds on Thursday with a high around 41 and a low near 27.

    Potential Snowfall totals:
    1-3 Inches BK
    2-4 Inches BX
    1-3 inches South of I-95 in CT,3-6 north of 95
    Coating – an inch LI
    1-3 Lower HV
    3-4 Upper HV (The further north = more accumulations)
    3-6 Northern NJ, 2-5 Central
    Coating – an inches South NJ

    Mostly cloudy. Winds will be LIGHT AND VARIABLE. The temperature will be 38 degrees.
    Rain changing to sleet and then to snow. Winds will be NNE 10-20 MPH. The temperature will be 40 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers. Winds will be NNW 5-15 MPH . The temperature will be 33 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy. Highs near 41. Lows near 27.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 36. Lows near 24.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 41. Lows near 37.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 49. Lows near 37.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 47. Lows near 35.
    Rain is expected to continue across the borough with another transition to wet snow after 6pm, as temps drop. Don’t count on the light and fluffy kind. It will be more like a wet slushy slop. The heaviest is expected until 10pm, with pockets of snow showers lasting until around midnight. As far as totals, up to a few inches is possible. Keep in mind that there will likely be fewer amounts near the shore. Brooklyn, as mentioned, will get mostly rain. There may be areas with a coating to an inch. The further north you go, the higher the totals. For instance, Riverdale could get around three inches as opposed to Throgs neck, which could get ¼ of an inch.

    Also, keep in mind that with lows dipping at or below freezing could mean an icy commute. In the wake of the storm, expect a chilly Thanksgiving. Wind chills will make it feel much colder. Highs will struggle to get out of the 30s on Black Friday.
    Mostly cloudy with rain or snow showers. Winds will be NNW 15-35 MPH. The temperature will be 33 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy with a few light showers or sprinkles. Winds will be NW 10-15 MPH. The temperature will be 40 degrees.
    Partly cloudy. Winds will be NW 10-15 MPH. The temperature will be 28 degrees.
    Mostly sunny skies. Highs near 37. Lows near 26.
    A mix of sun and clouds. Highs near 43. Lows near 35.
    A mix of sun and clouds. Highs near 48. Lows near 37.
    Partly sunny. Highs near 50. Lows near 35.
    Mostly sunny skies. Highs near 43. Lows near 30.
    Mild Monday

    With such a gorgeous start to the day, you’ll wonder if it’s December 1st or October 1st. The mild weather from yesterday lasts a few more hours today, with the bonus of morning sunshine. Clouds return midday today, and light rain starts around 2pm. Even though this afternoon begins mild, near 60, temperatures drop sharply this evening, bottoming out around 33 degrees overnight. Tomorrow is a different story. Cold, breezy weather begins your Tuesday, with clouds lasting into the afternoon. The air will be cold enough tomorrow at 2pm to support light snow and freezing rain mixed with ice pellets (sleet). The frozen precip lasts until around 7pm tomorrow night, when it changes back to plain rain. While not a full-fledged storm, however, overpasses, bridges and secondary roads will become slick for tomorrow evening’s rush.

    Sunshine returns on Thursday, and there’s another cool period with light rain of Friday. The weekend? Extra clouds and some showers with temperatures just above freezing.

    It looks like this Nor’easter will last through Wednesday. To reiterate, rain is set to begin after midnight. Expect heavy rain throughout the day, particularly between 6am and 3pm. With a coastal flood warning and wind advisory in place, expect treacherous traveling conditions. In addition to pooling on roads, anticipate wind gusts to clock in between 40 and 50moh. There could be down trees, power lines, and outages as well.

    By Tuesday night this system will stall, allowing pockets of showers to move across the area through Wednesday. Some areas may even see some wet flakes. Expect 2-3 inches of rain when this is all over.

    Cloudy with periods of rain. Winds will be ENE 15-30 MPH. The temperature will be 37 degrees.
    Windy with periods of rain. Winds will be NNE 20-40 MPH G50. The temperature will be 46 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy with very light showers or sprinkles. Winds will be NNW 10-20 MPH. The temperature will be 39 degrees.
    Mostly cloudy with scattered rain or snow showers. Highs near 43. Lows near 35.
    Mostly cloudy with scattered rain or snow showers. Highs near 41. Lows near 35.
    Partly sunny and breezy. Highs near 44. Lows near 32.
    Mostly sunny skies. Highs near 47. Lows near 33.
    Mostly sunny skies. Highs near 49. Lows near 34.
    Still Cloudy

    Think we’re the only ones putting up with cold and snow? It’s Warmer in Alberta, Canada this morning than West Palm Beach, FL. As temperatures stay chilly today due to a light snow cover from last night, and clouds hanging low all afternoon; however, this will be our last grey day. Sunshine is back tomorrow with highs reaching 40. Mostly sunny skies and warmer weather persists through the weekend. Tuesday brings back some clouds. The next weather event won’t be for at least the next 5-7 days.

    Windy Thursday

    Today’s weather is somewhat windy. Cool air and sunshine remains, just like yesterday. Highs climb into the mid 40s. Tonight is clear with less wind. Tomorrow is pretty much the same, minus the wind. The weekend starts clear, before extra clouds take over by Sunday. Fall ends at 6:03pm Sunday evening with some spotty, light showers. After a somewhat cloudy Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be wet and windy. Colder winds arrive on Christmas Day.

    Quiet Week Ahead

    What goes up, must come down. After a beautiful stretch of weather this past weekend, including NYC’s third warmest Christmas at 62, temperatures begin falling today. Once the morning clouds depart, sunshine returns and highs climb into the mid 40s. The rest of the week is quiet and sunny, but colder. Highs will hover around freezing each day. Milder weather arrives for the weekend at a price: rain brings back wet conditions on Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 50s.
    Ringing in the Chill

    While tonight’s Ball Drop Temperature is cold at 22 with the wind chill, that’s still warmer than the coldest wind chill in Times Square in 1997 of -21. The chilly weather is a product of the clear skies that keeps our weather quiet through Saturday morning. Clouds return mid-morning Saturday with average highs, around 40. Rain arrives later Saturday night and lasts through Sunday. Brutal cold and wind starts off Monday, and the cold lasts into the end of next week. Tuesday-Wednesday could bring our first snow of 2015.

    Damp Weekend

    Some wacky and dramatic weather swings can be found on the 7 day. The first occurs this weekend as tomorrow begins cold and cloudy. Rain arrives by noon Saturday, mixing with snow in the Bronx. No accumulation. After a chilly and raw afternoon, the rain becomes heavy for Saturday night plans and temperatures warm up significantly. Sunday will feature spotty light rain, clouds and some fog all day, but it will feel VERY mild with highs near 60. Temperatures come crashing down again for Monday morning with the wind chill at the bus stop and train platform in the 20s. Expect puddles and walkways that typically stay wet to freeze over for the AM rush. Roads will be dry. Sunshine will try to ease the chill, but highs Monday only reach their average of 38. Light snow arrives Tuesday to create a pretty sugarcoating of white on the usual surfaces. No accumulation—just snow snakes blowing around on the roads. Weak Alberta clippers never give us more an inch—I’d be surprised if we even get that. Wednesday and Thursday become insanely cold with wind chills in the single digits. After all. it’s Winter!

    Just a Sugarcoating

    Since most of the energy stays South from today’s clipper, there isn’t much to worry about regarding today’s flurries. Light snow begins falling this morning around 9am, and lasts intermittently into the afternoon. By this evening, expect a sugarcoating on cars. The atmosphere is so cold, that much of today’s snow gets gobbled up by the dry air. Tomorrow, the tease of cold air makes it feel just like this morning, 19 as the low. Winds begin to whip again by Thursday morning, dragging the wind chill into the single digits, close to zero, while the actual air temperature will be 11. Friday morning provides a brief break, with highs that reach above freezing by Sunday. Monday is a whopping whole 34 degrees—the warmest on the 7 day.

    Where’s the Snow?

    Another miss by tomorrow’s system means that we only accumulate around an inch, maybe two inches of snow beginning Wednesday evening. Most of the energy stays South. Our quiet snowy season thus far is not uncommon: statistically, blockbuster, Top 10 snowfall years (last year was 7th snowiest), are followed by less-than-average snowy years. A similar low-snowfall scenario occurred 3 years ago after the big snowfall 2010-11 Winter season. This, however, doesn’t mean that the rest of this Winter will be quiet. For about two weeks now, all signs have been pointing to a more active pattern beginning at the end of January. That is now coming to light—every few days, a coastal storm tries to form offshore and threaten us with accumulating snow beginning Saturday. Let the fun begin!

    Messy Saturday

    Thin clouds arrive tomorrow afternoon as Saturday’s storm approaches. While not apocalyptic, if the system delivers more than 2 inches (which it should), then it should still be our biggest snowfall event to date. There is more confusion rather than consensus on the weather charts this morning; however, the majority of solutions point to slightly less snow than yesterday. Still, anticipate snow to arrive before dawn Saturday, changeover to a mix during Saturday morning and midday, and ending as snow. It seems as though most of the snow accumulation should happen on the back end of this system, after 4pm. Today, the storm looks like a 3-6 inch event. That amount would be nudged higher/lower depending on cold air, system speed and storm position. There should still be slick conditions as sleet and freezing rain fall during the midday. Winds will gust to 40mph during the day. Sunday is sunny and cold with another big deep freeze ahead for next week.

    Icy Start

    The freezing rain that began at 4am has left an icy coating on cars, handrails and untreated roads. Temperatures have remained in the mid-20s since midnight. The freezing rain changes to ice pellets as the morning commute gets underway, lasting until around 9am. This morning’s gusty winds makes it feel like 15. The sleet will sound like a gravely crunch underfoot as it accumulates—it’s also much harder to melt than snow. As the atmosphere fully cools by noon, intermittent light snow falls throughout the rest of the day. Another coating of snow falls tonight. All the wintry precip will be so light, an average ruler won’t be able to measure it—leave that to the Weather Service’s specialized instrumentation next to Belvidere Castle in Central Park.

    Tomorrow gets colder, with another Arctic front moving in later this week. This will create light snow Thursday. Single digit morning lows follow on Friday. The core of Arctic air moves in for Monday, when it will feel well below zero.

    Chances for Snow

    Today and tomorrow are quiet. Sunshine breaks through beginning this morning, with full-on slush/melting/reflective sun glare this afternoon. Highs reach 34. Tonight re-freezes at 20 degrees. Despite sunshine all day, tomorrow begins our prolonged deep freeze, and won’t rebound into the 30s for a while. The arctic air arrives after some light snow during the day Thursday. Only expect 1-2 inches of a light fluff, that easily dusts off, beginning after the morning rush, and winding down during the evening rush. Temperatures may be too cold for road salt to be 100% effective (upper teens to low 20s during Thursday’s event). Sunshine is back Friday with wind chills below zero—actual air temps climb only to the upper teens. St. Valentine’s Day is too cold, as we wait for a storm to develop. If snow falls, it would occur on Sunday with wind lasting into President’s Day, Monday. That’s 6 days away—plenty of time to watch.

    Winter’s Not Over

    Despite the sunny and milder (37 degrees) weather yesterday, today brings another round of Winter. Flurries begin around noon, last an hour or two, and exit before the evening rush. Otherwise, expect clouds and 20s all day. There could be a dusting on cars in South Brooklyn. Tomorrow and Saturday are a pair of sunny but cold days—so cold, that Saturday morning sets new record lows in places (the 5th time this month). Sunday brings trouble. After a quiet morning, a system enters the picture Sunday evening. It follows a track where other storms on that path historically have brought 3-6” of snow. With the colder trend that has been playing out recently, this is certainly possible. Rain is looking like less and less of an element in Monday’s weather. Whether sleet, snow or ice, all of this will be frozen.

    A brief warm up arrives for Wednesday (40!), but another round of cold finishes next week. The weather still doesn’t look tame until the middle of March.

    Cooler Trend

    If you liked yesterday’s Spring Fling, here’s a dose of reality: it won’t return until April. Today will be 14 degrees cooler than yesterday, but feeling even colder with the early wind. Highs reached 61 in parts of the boroughs Wednesday. Despite the sunshine today, highs won’t even pass 50. The clear skies tonight, mean that we’ll drop to 30 by tomorrow morning; however there will be much less wind. Winds this morning gusted to 33mph, but will relax by this afternoon. The cooler trend that takes us into the weekend with rain, also lasts into next week with sun Monday and snow showers Tuesday. The first day of Spring on Friday, March 20th, will be cooler than average, with a cold rain nearby.

    Wet Weekend

    Early sunshine fades to clouds today. The afternoon doesn’t warm up that much, either. Rain begins after midnight tonight and lasts all day tomorrow, tapering after dark. Sunday morning will be cloudy and cool in the low 40 with mist and drizzle, especially in the afternoon. Winds increase to near 25mph Sunday. Monday will be just like yesterday: sunny and 50. Light showers return Monday night and last through early Tuesday, ending by the start of the parade. Colder and windy weather returns for Tuesday afternoon, and sunshine breaks out by midday. Wednesday will feel like an average February day, as the last few days of Winter will be calm, but chilly.

    Sn’over it

    It will feel like Winter for the next 5 days. Wind and cold today (with early morning flurries), calm and colder tomorrow. Figure on 1-3 inches of snow beginning noon Friday, lasting until 11pm Friday night. That 5” is absolute worst case—very low chance of happening. Historically, snow that travels along this Friday’s path, tends to play tricks. Cold weather returns for the weekend. It won’t warm up until Thursday. Even then, the rest of the month, on average, is still cooler than normal.
    Spring Sledding

    Take out the boots and grab the shovels—Winter isn’t going out without a fight. Snow begins as early as 11am tomorrow, turning heavy after 2pm. Due to today’s sunshine and long daylight hours, there won’t be any accumulation before 2pm; however, that accumulation ramps up quickly starting at 2pm. By the end of the snow at 9pm, a solid 3 inches will be on the ground. A small, but growing chance of 6 inches is still possible in Eastern neighborhoods. (Remember, once these storms hit open ocean, they go loco). The rest of the weekend is cold, but sunny by Sunday.

    The Chill is On

    Spring didn’t have a chance. This morning’s wind chills are in the low teens. Highs today climb just 5 degrees above freezing. Tomorrow is cold again, but the weather becomes noticeably milder by Wednesday afternoon. Thursday is muggy and mild with showers as highs should sit in the 60s most of the day. Colder weather returns with sunshine for the weekend. Could it snow again? Sure! But like Friday, it takes a long time to stick, and doesn’t last very long. On the contrary, April 3rd will be the 100th anniversary of a 10-inch snowstorm. Accumulations of as much as 3 inches have occurred as late as April 25th. The latest snowfall of any season occurred on May 9th, 1977 with a dusting. There is no snow on the 7 day.


    Don’t let the sunshine this morning fool you. This afternoon turns wet in a hurry. Clouds arrive by midday, and everything is wet by 3pm. Tomorrow is very mild and damp, with highs that climb into the 60s and spotty showers most of the day. If we get a late day break of sun tomorrow, that will not only add to the mugginess, but also enhance the storms that roll through the borough tomorrow evening. Plan on a brief gust of wind, thunder and lightning after 6pm. Friday is cooler, with clouds. Saturday is cold and somewhat windy with wind chills in the teens all day. There’s a good chance for flurries on Monday. The weather finally warms by Tuesday to 50.

    Stormy Afternoon and Evening

    Most of this morning is just cool, foggy and damp with spotty drizzle. Steady showers arrive by 11am, with some intermittent downpours. Any late day breaks of sunshine (after 3p) would help warm temperatures into the 60s, and enhance the line of storms that arrives after 6pm. The storm’s primary threat is wind, with gusts up to 40mph. Up to 1 inch of rain falls by 11pm. Tomorrow starts cloudy and much cooler with clearing later in the day. It will be cold enough on Saturday morning to support flurries. Sunday is the sunny half of the weekend (both days are cold.) The warming trend begins April 1st.

    Winter Weekend

    The weather will be far from Spring-like tomorrow and Sunday. Morning showers today taper to afternoon clouds and a chill settles in for the night. Highs today stay in the 40 with a raw, damp wind from the North. Expect brief breaks of sun by this evening. Tonight hovers just above freezing. Tomorrow begins with limited sun, but quickly turns cloudy as snow flurries are back by the afternoon. Zero accumulation. The weather gets colder tomorrow night with lows in the 20s. Sunday is sunny, but 10 degrees below the average high of 55. Next week gradually warm to 60 by Friday, with some nice days.

    Just Stop.

    Spring tried to be funny when it dropped an hour of light snow this morning before dawn, dusting the grass in Van Cortlandt. While the sun returns this afternoon, the snow isn’t quite over just yet. Tomorrow afternoon starts rainy mixed with snow, likely changing to all snow during Tuesday evening’s rush. The roads just stay wet, but the snow likely leaves an icy coating on cars by midnight. Wednesday brings back the sun, with milder weather on Thursday: the warmest day with sunshine this week near 60. Friday is also mild; however, rain returns Friday afternoon (before Passover begins) and lasts through Saturday. This system also has a chance to end with light snow. Sunday rebounds to 55 with sunshine: seasonally average Easter weather.

    More Snow

    There ARE warm, sunny days in this week’s forecast. Today isn’t one of them. Sunshine starts the morning today, with temperatures quickly approaching their daily high as soon as 11am. After that, it’s pretty much all downhill. Clouds arrive late morning, leading to a chilly rain by 2pm. Snow won’t mix in until after 3pm at the earliest in the Bronx, to as late as 7pm in Brooklyn. Roads simply stay wet through the duration of this evening’s snow, but cars could accumulate up to a half inch of icy, wet snow by midnight, when the clipper is done.
    Tomorrow is sunny all day, with highs approaching 50. Thursday is the best day yet, 60 and sunny by the afternoon! Even Thursday morning starts mild at 48, but a gusty, mild wind lasts all day. Friday starts mild with clouds, as rain arrives by the afternoon, before Passover begins at 7:21p. That system, too, could change to snow late Friday night, and we’ll likely wakeup to snow falling early Saturday morning. Again, nothing sticks.

    Easter Sunday sunny and mild at 50, but Easter egg hunts will be muddy in the grass from all of Friday/Saturday’s rain/snow.

    Finally Spring

    After last night’s official “trace” of snow, sunshine today warms us to 50. Tomorrow hits 60 under mostly sunny skies. This Winter, 50.3 inches, nearly double the average. We’re 7 inches of snow shy of last season’s winter total snowfall. Although some flakes could mix in with Saturday morning’s rain, there’s no more accumulating snow in the forecast. Easter Sunday is sunny and mild at 50, but lawns will be muddy from all the rain. We’ll keep warming, right through next week to our average high of 56.

    Windy Day

    While the sunshine will make today feel warm, today’s pleasantly high temperature is due to a southwest wind. Highs reach 60 today, just 2 degrees shy of the warmest day this Spring (that happened one week ago today, March 26th). A wind advisory is up for Brooklyn until 8pm for gusts up to 40mph. Tomorrow is even milder, but it’s cloudy all morning, and heavy rain falls tomorrow evening. Expect a thunderstorm before midnight. Saturday clears early, with sun most of the afternoon. Easter Sunday is cool and sunny at 50. Finally, if you saw Facebook, Twitter or Instagram last night, I’m not launching into space in 2018.

    Happy Easter

    This afternoon and tonight’s rain clears out early tomorrow, so we’ll begin Easter weekend dry, sunny and cool. Today began with temperatures around 60, and we’ll easily climb into the mid-60s this afternoon away from the shoreline. Beach neighborhoods are much colder due to the air being cooled by 40 degree sound and ocean water temperature. Clouds this morning turn to rain this afternoon and storms by midnight tonight. Tomorrow through Monday are sunny, mild and clear; however, Saturday is very windy. Tuesday afternoon brings back April showers lasting through Thursday. The next two weeks are VERY wet with one rain system lined up after the next. We’re on target with rainfall for the year, but will likely exceed April’s average 4.5 inches of rainfall this month.
    Just Cloudy

    There won’t be much significant rain today. Expect just clouds all day and a sprinkle at around 2pm. The temperatures have dropped; however, making this morning’s wind chill feel like freezing. Rain returns tonight and especially tomorrow afternoon. Storms bring back the heavy rain late tomorrow night and again Friday afternoon. We’ll get windy gusts with a milder breeze Friday afternoon. The weekend remains perfect: sunny and mild. (Just like Monday was).

    The Rain Ends Tomorrow

    This morning was even colder than yesterday. Wind chills reached 28 degrees thanks to a gusty and damp east wind. Like yesterday, however, most of today is just cloudy. Tonight won’t be as cold, with more showers returning. Tomorrow is much milder, especially in the afternoon. Storms arrive around 5-6pm Friday with gusty winds, thunder, lightning and heavy rain. The storms clear out by 9pm, leaving a clear and warm weekend. Even though mornings will be chilly through Tuesday, the afternoon highs will be in the upper 60, nearing 70 by Tuesday. Next week is much milder (by 20 degrees) and much drier.

    May Weather

    While today won’t have the rich blue sunny skies all day like yesterday did, most of this afternoon will be clear. Highs struggle to reach 70 due to the delayed warming with the thin clouds this morning. Tomorrow is cool, but wet. Steady rain arrives before dawn Tuesday, and lasts throughout the afternoon. The heaviest of the rain should be over by 2pm but some sprinkles could be around until after sunset. Sunny weather returns Wednesday, lasting through the weekend. Friday is the exception with clouds and sprinkles. Those April showers means business starting next Tuesday, with cooler than average weather.

    Another Rainy Day

    The difference with today’s wet weather will be just how mild the day is. Most of the rain falls during the first half of the day, with spotty light drizzle around this afternoon. Clouds tonight keep a mild feel around for tomorrow morning, with sunshine warming highs on Wednesday to near 70—a repeat of yesterday. Thursday is still sunny, but much cooler. Friday has clouds with limited sunshine and times of sprinkles, but not a steady rain. Saturday and Sunday clear out with highs in the mid 60s. Next week’s cool down is still on schedule.


    Highs should hit 70 today, but feel even warmer under the mostly sunny skies. As typical for late April, the air will be very dry today as warm breezes blow from the Northwest, enhancing the warming effect. Brush fires could spread easily if started. Tomorrow begins dry and comfortable with thin clouds arriving for the afternoon. Since winds blow off of a chilly 44 degree ocean on Thursday, expect a 10 degree drop in temperatures compared to today’s highs. Friday starts with a passing sprinkles, but like yesterday, most of Friday is just cloudy. Showers return Friday night, with clearing and warming for the weekend.

    Cooler, yet Sunny

    Today’s highs will be at least 10 degrees cooler than yesterday’s 72 degree high. This afternoon will see thin clouds thicken up to bring on overcast conditions by the end of the day. With the wind off of the water all day, coastal communities won’t leave the 50s today. Tomorrow starts wet with light, spotty showers, and it remains cloudy most of the day. Another round of light showers returns late in the afternoon, Friday. With sunshine, temperatures return to 72 on Saturday and continued sunshine on Sunday. Monday and Tuesday are SOAKERS with seasonably cooler weather (in the low 60s) for the rest of next week.

    Windswept Rain

    The early risers got to work dry, with a new hairdo thanks to this morning’s wind. The rest of the Monday commuters got soaked as a windswept heavy rain began around 7am this morning. Temperatures are chilly in the 50s today. 1-2 inches of rain falls in 8 hours, with the heavy rain wrapping up before 5pm. Winds gust to 40 mph, while sustained winds blow at 30mph. (Sideways rain) From 11am-2pm, the rain is so heavy that flooding will be likely for the evening rush. The rain is needed since we’ve been parched this month—April’s rainfall deficit is about 2.5 inches. Tonight has drizzle with clouds. Tomorrow begins cool with sunshine breaking through the clouds at dawn. Dry and mild weather last until Wednesday evening when a line of thunderstorm approaches in the afternoon. Chilly and dry weather is on tap for the end of this week as highs hover at or below 60 through the end of the month.
    More Rain

    We’ll make up our entire April rainfall deficit by tomorrow. About 1.5 inches fell across the boroughs in total including last night additional storms. We’ll get another round of rain tomorrow with morning showers and midday non-severe rain. About the same amount fell Upstate yesterday, adding to the city’s reservoir system, which has dipped to 94% of capacity as of yesterday morning. Normal reservoir capacity for late April is 98%. Once this morning’s showers wrap up by 8am today, the sun shines all day and light breezes help us reach 64. Clouds and showers return late tonight and last into tomorrow morning. The next round of briefly heavy rain comes in around noon tomorrow with clearing and cooler weather arriving by the evening.

    The rest of the week is cooler and dry with the northern Bronx neighborhoods dipping into the upper 30s on some mornings. Unseasonably cool highs through Saturday will not reach 60.

    Cooler Days Ahead

    While highs this afternoon will be almost 10 degrees above average (even 5 degrees warmer than yesterday) under mostly sunny skies, temperatures take a big dip before the weekend. Today’s high of 74 will be followed by a chilly night of 50 degrees. Tomorrow stays in the 60s with clouds increasing throughout the afternoon, and Friday is totally overcast in the 50s only. Any rain should stay to our south, and the weekend is dry, too. Skies clear for Saturday and especially Sunday with highs in the 70s. Next week will easily feel like May: temperatures sit in the upper 70s under mostly sunny skies.

    Upper 70s!

    Yesterday’s highs neared 80 in many locations across the borough. Today will be far from that. Already chilly at dawn, clouds are moving in and will thicken up through tomorrow. The wind off the water all day will keep temperatures in the 50s this morning. This afternoon will be about 15 degrees cooler than yesterday. Tomorrow is also dry, but cooler in the 40s and 50s all day. Sunshine is back for the weekend. Highs should near 80 on Tuesday when our next chance of rain is close by.
