News 12 Bronx/Brooklyn Weather Extra

    Another in a series of weak cold fronts will bring a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms early Saturday as it meets a very warm and humid air mass. After overnight lows from the low to mid-60s, the mercury rebounds to the upper 70s and mid-80s (warmer inland) on south to west winds. By Sunday, an easterly flow will bring cooler temperatures and a partly to mostly cloudy sky with highs falling back to the low and mid-60s.

    Cool Season Fog.
    There’s more fog around this morning thanks to a cool breeze off the water. Warmer air returns for this afternoon. Temperatures today reach the mid to upper 70s with sunshine back for the afternoon hours. Storms move in tonight, but should clear before daybreak tomorrow. Tuesday is warm and sunny, but the weather cools for the rest of the week. Rain and wind with chilly air are back for Friday. The crummy Friday weather likely lasts through the weekend, perhaps into early next week.
    The week began under areas of fog and cool temperatures. Overall temperatures were as much as four degrees above average for the first of May. I hope you enjoyed the mid-80s that took us into the weekend as it is doubtful that we will feel that type of warmth anytime soon.

    As a cold front advances east, there is a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms for the borough during the late night and overnight hours. The front should move off-shore by Tuesday morning. Fair weather returns for Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure moves in from the west. Rain returns to the borough as low pressure moves northeast, bringing periods of rain that may be steady and heavy at times late Thursday through Friday. Allergy sufferers will have a rough week as tree pollen remain at high severity levels for the week. Grass pollen is forecasted to remain at moderate severity levels through Thursday.

    Early Storms, then Sun
    The early morning rain pushed out by 8:30-9am and is followed by sunshine for the remainder of the day. Breezy conditions last all afternoon long with gusts up to 30mph from the southwest. Highs will reach the mid-70s. Tonight and tomorrow’s weather will be clear and breezy; however, much cooler air returns for tomorrow. Wednesday’s highs only reach the low 60s despite full sunshine. Rainy, windy and chilly weather returns for Friday and lasts through Saturday.  There’s a chance of getting a few breaks of clear sky this weekend, but like yesterday, those opportunities will be limited. Tree and grass pollen will be high for the next several days.
    Turning cooler and wet!

    After some early morning clouds and patchy fog, temperature climbed from the upper 50s and mid-60s to highs of 75 at Central park, 77 at JFK and 78 at La Guardia. Overall, we were twelve degrees above average for May 2nd under a mix of sun and clouds during the afternoon hours. I hope you had a chance to enjoy the nice weather as a weakening cold front brings a cooler air mass and gusty northwesterly winds through Wednesday. A fair sky will be overhead as Canadian high pressure follows the cold front. Clouds will increase as low pressure from the southwest brings our next opportunity for wet weather as early as Thursday night. Periods of rain may be heavy at times through Friday with potential rainfall of around an inch by Saturday.

    Wind Chill in May
    Cooler breezes today will keep tree pollen levels high. Grasses will remain at the moderate level today and tomorrow until Friday’s rain rinses those allergens from the atmosphere. The weather is cool, sunny and dry until Thursday afternoon. Overcast skies return tomorrow, before rain moves in for Friday. Chilly air off the ocean mixed with wind and rain will make Friday’s weather feel extra raw. Saturday and Sunday aren’t washouts, but it won’t clear out until Monday. In fact, even colder air arrives for the weekend, bringing Monday morning’s wind chills down into the 30s. It’s too soon to tell if a cold record will be set, but 37° is the number to beat—that record is 126 years old.
    The two week trend is cooler than average until the second half of May.
    Super Soaker.
    1-2 inches of rain will fall during the midday today. Combined with gusty winds to 50mph off the water, flooding will be likely for the evening commute.  Most of the heavy rainfall is done by 5pm, with lingering light showers this evening and a chilly feel. Temperatures remain in the 50s today, warming into the low 60s tonight. The weekend will be unsettled thanks to the large weather system spinning nearby, throwing clouds and showers our way until Sunday night.  The winds switch direction just in time for next week, allowing for a chilly northwest wind for Monday morning. The next 7 days will feel like March with highs no warmer than the mid 60s this weekend, and dropping to the mid 50s early next week.
    Unseasonably Chilly.
    Cooler than average weather remains all week. Temperatures will struggle to reach the low 60s today and tomorrow. Morning sunshine warms us into the upper 50s by midday, but also helps create mostly cloudy skies this afternoon. Passing sprinkles are likely this evening, but not every neighborhood sees rain. Tomorrow will bring more clouds with another March-like forecast: highs in the upper 50s. Chilly air (about 10-12 degrees below average) lingers into this weekend with increasing chances for rain on Saturday and Sunday. The chilly pattern becomes “unstuck” next Wednesday allowing for warmer sunshine to return with typical May warmth in about 10 days.
    Cooler with Sun
    Today’s weather is another repeat of yesterday’s cool, March-like feel. In fact, the rest of this week will remain in the low to mid 60s for highs, with every morning beginning in the 40s. Dry weather should last through Friday, with an opportunity for some showers this weekend. The Mother’s Day forecast is too close to call, given the unknown position of a wind and rain event later this weekend. There should be some more clarity on the timing and track by tomorrow. Regardless, warmer, May-like weather returns in about 7-8 days with full sunshine and a touch of humidity.
    Very High UV.


    Today’s sunshine will allow the first day of a “Very High” ultraviolet index this year.  It corresponds to 8 of 11 on the UV scale. The scale goes beyond 11 in the tropics, but our area only reaches 11 (extreme) for a few days around the summer solstice. Burn time is less than 15 minutes. Despite today being the warmest day this week, all of the afternoon sun still can’t make up for the lack of seasonal warmth.  Highs remain in the low 60s today and tomorrow, with increasing clouds tomorrow afternoon. Rain begins very light late Friday afternoon with wind increasing off the water--that will keep weekend temperatures in the 50s.  The heaviest of the rain will fall on Saturday afternoon and night, with flooding very likely thanks to 2-3 inches of rainfall likely. Winds could be sustained of 45mph Saturday into Sunday, with higher gusts. A drier, but still gusty breeze, should push out some clouds by Monday, but the chill remains until Tuesday. Wednesday will bring back seasonable weather in the 70s with sunshine.  After a late week shower chance, the weather clears out perfectly for a seasonably warm, sunny and calm next weekend.



    Not much of a change until the weekend

    If you are looking for mild to warm temperatures you’ll have a bit of a wait. Temperatures for Wednesday were 3 to 5 degrees below average for May 10th with readings of 63/49 for Central Park, 64/52 at LaGuardia and 60/50 for JFK. Cooler than average and dry weather continues through Friday as a weak area of high pressure remains in control. Low pressure moves east and crosses the Ohio Valley late Thursday and off the coast by Friday, bringing wind and rain to the borough through Mother’s Day weekend. Seasonal temperatures return by the middle of next week.

    Another Cool and Dry One for the Books

    Thursday was a day under a partly to mostly cloudy sky with temperatures three to six degrees below average for the 11th of May. Changes are on the way as weak high pressure moves out Friday. Low pressure will approach from the southwest and strengthen as it moves east and off the coast Friday night into Saturday. Gusty winds and periods of heavy rain are in the forecast as a Nor’easter for just in time for Mother’s Day weekend. Rainfall amounts will approach two inches with potential wind gust from 30 to 40 mph with the worst of weather taking place Saturday.

    Soaking rains on the way!

    The work and school week ends with dry and cool weather that ends tonight as high pressure lifts north and low pressure moves off the Carolina coast then north beginning tonight. This coastal low will bring periods of rain that will be heavy at times, a gusty easterly wind from 25 to 35 mph. This easterly flow will bring a risk of flooding along the coast especially during times of high tide on Saturday (Coney Island: 10:14am / 10:23PM, Jamaica Bay / Canarsie: 10:45am / 10:54PM and City Island: 12:53PM / 10:23PM) as well as possible minor inland flood. Rainfall estimated from two to three inches by Sunday afternoon. Mother’s Day will be a mostly cloudy day with a chance of showers and winds remaining gusty.

    Our weather begins to improve as the new work and school begins. Our coastal low weakens as it moves towards the Canadian Maritimes. High pressure builds to our south bringing a west to southwest flow of increasingly warmer. Look for a summer feel to our weather as temperatures climb from the mid-60s on Monday to the low and mid-80s by Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

    Get ready for July Weather in May!

    We’ll have a clearing sky and diminishing winds as our nor’easter weakens and crosses Nova Scotia over the next 24 hours. A fair sky and increasingly warm temperatures take over the region through Friday as high pressure sets up off the mid-Atlantic coast. This “Bermuda high” is a summer pattern that will bring a southwesterly flow of very warm and humid air sending daytime highs into the mid and upper 80s while overnight lows will only fall to the upper 50s and upper 60s Wednesday through Friday. This is great news for those of us that love warm weather, but this also means a return to sneezing, nasal congestion, watery noses and itchy eyes for those who suffer when the pollen count is high. Overall air quality will be less than great with no rain in the forecast for the next 3 to 5 days.

    A Brief Taste of Summer is on the Way!

    High pressure moves off the mid-Atlantic coast bringing a southwesterly flow of very warm and humid air to the region through Thursday. Highs are forecasted for the mid-80s to low 90s with dew points in the low and mid-60s. This is the time to slow-down and to be properly hydrated, especially if you will be working outside. A cold front will approach from the west on Friday bringing a chance of showers, possible thunderstorms and a northerly flow of cooler and drier air just in time for the weekend.

    Stagnant, Hot Air
    Sunny weather today, combined with a light, but muggy, southwest wind, will make this afternoon’s temperatures soar to near 90°. Air quality will be poor this afternoon with high levels of ground ozone. (Vehicle emissions in a stagnant air mass chemically react with the sun’s photons, creating O₃. Since we breath O₂, an Air Quality Alert (or Air Quality Action Day) is effective 10am to 10pm today.) Those with respiratory issues are urged not to exert themselves today and tomorrow.
    An afternoon sea breeze will cool down the city’s beach neighborhoods into the upper 50s by 3pm.  It will feel about 30 degrees warmer, just 10 miles inland in Williamsburg, as compared to Coney Island this afternoon. Feels like temperatures remain in the upper 80s through this evening, well after sunset, thanks to the increased humidity. Full sunshine all-day today, will transition to mostly cloudy skies tonight, trapping in the day’s heat, letting tomorrow start in the 70s.  That’s one of the reasons why tomorrow’s heat will set new record highs—tomorrow morning’s low will already be our normal afternoon high for the date. Any chance of a quick t-storm tomorrow will primarily be to our North; regardless, the humidity will still reach uncomfortable levels Thursday. Clouds increase Friday afternoon beginning the cool-down to average May weather. Friday night’s light shower activity should stay too far South to be of any concern. Saturday will start cool with a few clouds, then transition to mostly sunny skies mid-morning with light winds all day, high around 70. Sunday is mostly cloudy and cooler, with highs in the mid 60s only.
    Summer in May!

    Well above average temperatures were recorded on this 17th day of May. Central Park: 89/65, LaGuardia: 93 (Record High) /66 and Kennedy 77/57. Overall 6 to 17 degrees above average for the date and we do it all over again on Thursday.

    A southwesterly flow very warm and humid air continues as high pressure is anchored off the Carolina coast. Temperatures will approach record breaking levels through Thursday as a cold front approach from the west. This front will bring a slight chance of showers and possible thunderstorm and winds shifting from southwest to northwest. This cooler and less humid air mass will take over as we end the work and school week and begin the weekend. In the meantime, anyone with respiratory concerns will want to slow down and spend as little time outdoors as possible as a stagnant air mass will remain over much of the Tri-state area through Friday. As a result, The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an AIR QUALITY ALERT from 10AM - 10PM Thursday. Allergy sufferers can also expect high levels of tree and grass pollen through the weekend.

    Record / Forecast Highs for Thursday
    Central Park: 90 set in 1936 – Forecast High: 91
    LaGuardia: 86 set in 1989 – Forecast High: 88
    JFK: 88 set in 1977 – Forecast High: 82

    Do what you can to stay cool!
    Another Day of Record Temperatures

    It’s day two of heat and humidity for the borough as our Bermuda high begins to pull away from the coast. As it does, our winds will shift from southwest to west tonight into Friday which means less of a tropical feel to our weather to close out the work and school week. We still run the risk of record breaking temperatures for Thursday, not so for Friday.

    Central Park: Forecast High: 91, Record High: 90 set in 1936
    LaGuardia: Forecast High: 94, Record High: 86 set in 1989
    Kennedy: Forecast High: 82, Record High: 88 set in 1977

    Central Park: Forecast High: 86, Record High: 99 set in 1962
    LaGuardia: Forecast High: 86, Record High: 95 set in 1962
    Kennedy: Forecast High: 83, Record High: 91 set in 1962

    A cold front will advance from the northwest bringing a cooler and less humid air mass to the borough just in time for the weekend. There is only a slight chance of showers and a possible thunderstorm associated with this front. As a result, pollen levels will remain high through the weekend and we under an AIR QUALITY ALERT until 10PM tonight. The front should clear the coast by Friday evening setting us up for pleasant weather for most of the weekend under the influence of Canadian high pressure. I do have increasing clouds in the forecast for Sunday as another cold front brings a chance of rain to the borough as early as Sunday night and taking us through the day on Monday.

    The First Heat Wave of 2017!

    Temperatures were 17 to 25 degrees above average for the 19th of May with highs 91 at Central Park, 96 at LaGuardia and 90 at Kennedy. Today makes the 3rd straight day of 90 degrees or higher at LaGuardia Airport making this the first heat wave of 2017! Potential record temperatures come to an end as a cold front moves off shore tonight. We go into the weekend under the influence of Canadian high pressure. This high will bring a cool north to east flow that will keep daytime highs in the mid-60s and low 70s while overnight lows fall to the 50s through the weekend. A sunny to partly sunny sky is in the forecast for Saturday with increasing clouds for Sunday as a warm front advance from the west. This front will bring our next round of wet weather as early as Sunday night and taking us through Monday.

    Rainy and Cool.
    More rain will fall this afternoon, putting another inch in the bucket for this month. Winds remain light, but air stays cool, about 12 degrees below average for the day. Including today’s rain, May 2017 has received double the normal rainfall—with more rain to come later this week. By tonight, we will be one inch shy of entering the Top 10 wettest Mays on record. Tomorrow’s weather warms significantly, but just back to average. The rest of the day will be cloudy with slivers of sunshine. Wednesday turns milder with sun. Rain is back with gusty northwest winds on Thursday and Friday.  The weather clears nicely for Saturday with warm sunshine and calm breezes. The rest of the weekend is up in the air: right now, the thinking is cloudy skies returning by Sunday night. Memorial Day’s weather is too uncertain as of today.
    Unsettled Weather for most of the week

    A series of low pressure systems will bring clouds and periods of rain to the borough for much of this week. Temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s for daytime highs and will fall to the 50s and low 60s for overnight lows through Friday.




    This weekend’s forecast is very tricky.  In a nutshell, the holiday weekend weather changes every 6 hours, going back and forth from sunny and warm to rainy and cool. Here’s a breakdown of the next few days: sunny and warm weather today, will lead to pleasantly comfortable conditions. Afternoon clouds will be the only effect from rain showers that pass us by just offshore.  Seasonable sunny weather continues tomorrow with highs returning to the mid 70s. Clouds are back late tomorrow evening before a whole day of rain and thunderstorms moves in for Thursday. Anticipate another 1-2 inches of rain throughout the day Thursday.  The soggy weather lasts into Friday morning as light drizzle, but gradually clears out by the late afternoon allowing for a pleasantly dry Friday evening. Saturday is the pick of the weekend, with full sunshine all day and comfortably warm weather in the upper 70s. Sunday is decent to start, but gradually becomes overcast into the afternoon. I think Sunday afternoon is dry, but showers return by the late evening. Monday looks pretty wet and cool. Not ideal, but there’s still some uncertainty in the forecast regarding Monday’s specific details, so there’s hope!



    Wet weather mid-week through Friday

    Our pattern of unsettled weather continues as waves of low pressure crosses the region bringing periods of rain and possible thunderstorms to the borough late Wednesday night through Thursday Night. A few remaining showers are possible Friday as low pressure moves northeast. Weak high pressure moves in Friday night into Saturday bring a pleasant start to the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Unfortunately, another round of clouds and showers are in the forecast for Sunday and Monday that could drive holiday activities indoors.

    Today’s weather is the perfect corollary for this weekend: fickle conditions. Light rain ended earlier today and will be followed by sunny and warm weather this afternoon. Tonight turns cool with an easterly breeze with rain moving in quickly for the overnight.  Tomorrow has rain and chilly weather all day, briefly heavy at times. Friday is split: wet weather begins the day, with partly cloudy skies by the afternoon, and possibly even a late-day sun shower. Saturday is still the best day of the 3-day weekend. Sunday should remain clear in the morning, with clouds in the afternoon and rain starting up again that evening. Some of that rain lingers into Monday morning; however, clearing around midday on Memorial Day should allow the outdoor plans to go off without a problem.  Rain is back later Monday evening, lasting into Tuesday.
    Another Round of Wet Weather

    Clouds, periods of rain with possible thunderstorms begin overnight and take us through Friday as low pressure over the Ohio Valley moves east and off-shore just in for the start of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. At this point, Saturday looks like the best day of the weekend as high pressures crosses the Tri-state area. The high quickly exits as low pressure and the associated warm front brings another round of clouds and rain for Sunday and Memorial Day.

    Another Rainy Day.
    Light rain started around 4am, and lingers with varying intensities all morning. We’ll get a break this afternoon with just cloudy skies, but another round of downpours with thunderstorms return this evening. All this of this rainfall could add up in the bucket, marking the May 2017 as the 10th wettest May on record.  Even if that milestone isn’t reached today, it’s a near guarantee that it occurs before the end of the month next week thanks to rain in the forecast during the late-part of the holiday weekend. Tomorrow remains mostly cloudy with breaks of sun—very similar to yesterday’s partial sunshine. Despite the clouds, tomorrow will be much warmer, in the 70s, due to the warm front that arrives tonight.  Full blue sky finally returns on Saturday with highs remaining in the mid 70s. Clouds may return early Sunday, lasting through the afternoon. Light rain is back on Sunday afternoon, lingering into Sunday night.  Dry weather begins Memorial Day, but cloudy skies will bring rain back for Monday afternoon. The remainder of next week looks dry and seasonably warm with sun.
    Not perfect, but not a washout!

    Our weather has improved as the low that brought showers and thunderstorms to the borough last night moves off the New England coast. A weak area of high pressure will cross the region over the next 24 to 36-hours, bringing us fair weather to start the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Clouds and a chance of showers return to the borough Sunday and Memorial Day as a weak area of low pressure approaches from the west and slips off shore south of the Tri-State area. Once again, have alternative plans in mind for Sunday and Monday.

    Have a safe and pleasant holiday weekend,
    Cloudy and cooler than average through Tuesday

    Clouds, drizzle and patchy areas of fog are in the forecast for tonight as a low pressure pulls away from us. Additional clouds, showers and slight chance of thunderstorms are in the forecast for Tuesday, as a cold front approaches from the west. Fair weather returns for Wednesday and Thursday as Canadian high pressure takes over.

    Our weather remains cloudy and cool due to a persistent easterly wind generated by high pressure off the Nova Scotia coast and low pressure off the Virginia / North Carolina coast. This pattern will remain in place with a chance of showers through Wednesday as a cold front approached from the northwest. Once the front clears, high pressure will bring a period of sun and seasonal temperatures for Thursday and most of Friday before clouds and a chance of showers return for the weekend.

    Sunshine Returns.
    After all the May Gray, a welcomed return to sunny and warm weather begins this afternoon and lasts through Saturday. Once this morning fog lifts, highs return to the mid 70s with comfortable humidity. A quick, passing storm moves in this afternoon and drops the temperature for this evening. The air remains comfortably dry and seasonably warm in the upper 70s into Saturday evening with sunshine every morning and afternoon. The next round of wet weather occurs Sunday, and likely lasts through next Wednesday with varying intensities of rain (similar to what happened most of May). Some days during that time frame have steady showers, others with just drizzle. Temperatures remain slightly below average in the upper 60s, as opposed to the upper 50s. The end of next week begins to clear out with a pattern change that should bring warm weather back mid-June.
    Tree pollen season is wrapping up with only moderate levels reported. Grass pollen remains high as the peak usually occurs in June.
    We have a slight chance of showers and possible thunderstorms tonight as a cold front moves off-shore. High pressure returns giving us fair weather for Thursday and most of Friday. A second cold front moves through Friday night and stalls south of the area keeping us under a mix of sun and clouds for Saturday. Clouds and showers return to the borough Sunday through Tuesday as low pressure is anchored to our west.

    The National Weather Service has issued a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 4AM for Kings Brooklyn, all of Long Island as well as coast Westchester County and coastal Connecticut as visibility is expected to fall to a quarter-miles or less. We have a slight chance of showers and possible thunderstorms tonight as a cold front moves off-shore. High pressure returns giving us fair weather for Thursday and most of Friday. A second cold front moves through Friday night and stalls south of the area keeping us under a mix of sun and clouds for Saturday. Clouds and showers return to the borough Sunday through Tuesday as low pressure is anchored to our west.

    The pleasant weather of Thursday continues through most of Friday as high pressure drifts east across the Ohio Valley. An area of low pressure extends south from southeast Canada and crosses the northeast through Friday night bringing a slight chance of showers and possible thunderstorms. Weakened high pressure will continue to drift east through Saturday night giving us a mix of sun and clouds for the first half of the weekend along with seasonal temperatures. Our weather turns wet and eventually cooler from Sunday through mid-week as a slow-moving area of low pressure drifts east from the Midwest and doesn’t clear the east coast until midweek.

    Today is June 1st, this marks the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. NOAA’s forecast projects 11 to 17 named storms, 5 to 9 of which become hurricanes and 2 to 4 of those becoming major hurricanes (Category 3 or greater). Remember: It only takes one storm to lives and property in danger. The time to plan is Now!

    Nice weather through Saturday and maybe the first half of Sunday

    A weak cold front will bring a slight chance of a shower or two and maybe even an isolated thunderstorm during the late afternoon / early evening hours followed by a partly cloudy and cool temperatures for Friday night. The first weekend in June starts out nice as a weak area of high pressure over the Ohio Valley moves southeast and off shore Saturday night. Increasing clouds are in the forecast for Sunday with showers beginning during the late afternoon / early evening as low pressure over the Great Lakes region slowly moves east and off the New England coast by midweek. Clouds, cooler temperatures and periods of rain are in the forecast through Wednesday. At least the pollen count will be low for several days!

    A Few Days of Clouds, Showers, Fog and Cooler Temperatures

    An upper low pressure system will sit and spin, moving little over the next few days as a surface cold front slowly drifts south with waves of low pressure rides along the front. As a result, clouds, areas of potentially dense fog, showers and a persistent easterly wind will keep us under an unsettled weather pattern through most of this week. Late in the week Canadian high pressure will begin to build south across New England bringing a drier and eventually warmer air mass to the region as we approach the weekend.

    Still grey and damp with cooler than average temperatures

    The cloudy and cool weather continues with periods of light showers and or drizzle through early Wednesday. Our weather gradually improves as high pressure from the northwest nudges out the clouds and showers. This high will generate a west to southwest flow as early as Friday, returning temperatures to the 70s and 80s under a mostly fair sky through the weekend and early next week. The one potential issue is a developing area of low pressure off the Florida coast. This low is forecasted to track up the east coast, but far enough away from the coast that my only concern at this time is an active surf and possible risk of rip currents for Friday and Saturday.

    Improving Weather!

    Pleasant weather returns as high pressure across the region through Thursday. A coastal low is forecasted to move up the coast, but will be far enough east that we will only see some clouds and a very slight chance of showers late Thursday and Friday thanks to THE high. As the low moves away, the same area of high pressure will move off the mid-Atlantic coast, generating a south to southwest flow of very warm and humid air that will give us highs in the mid-80s to possibly the low 90s from Saturday through Tuesday of next week.

    Summer weather on the way!

    Our weather will be driven by high pressure for the next 5 to 6 days. Though low pressure is riding up the coast, it will be far enough away from the coast that it should only bring an increase in clouds with a slight chance of a shower or thundershower and a moderate risk of rip currents for ocean facing beaches on Friday (waves 4 to 6 feet). The start of the weekend looks great under a partly sunny sky with highs from the low to mid-80s and only a slight chance of showers and thundershowers. It turns hot and humid from Sunday through Tuesday of next week with daytime highs from the upper 80s to the low 90s and dew point temperatures in the mid-60s. We could be looking at the second heat wave for 2017.

    Increasing heat and humidity for the next 5 days.

    A clearing sky and west to southwest winds will bring a summer-like pattern to the borough through Tuesday as high pressure to our southwest moves eastward. Daytime highs will reach the mid-80s under a mix of sun and clouds for Saturday. By Sunday, it will begin to feel uncomfortable as daytime highs reach the upper 80s and low 90s while overnight lows fall to the 60s and 70s. These conditions will continue through Tuesday, giving us the second heat wave for 2017. With dew points reaching the mid-60s, keeping cool will be a little bit of a challenge. Cooler weather returns to the borough late Tuesday into Wednesday as cold front brings a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms followed by a cooler northeast to east wind.

    It was a hot Monday with low humidity

    This was the second day of a potential heat wave for the city. Daytime highs reached 95 at LaGuardia, 93 at Central Park and 92 at JFK. These are all record breaking temperatures for June 12th. High pressure sits off the mid-Atlantic coast as a cold front crosses the Great Lakes region. This front will bring a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms late Tuesday. Behind the front is Canadian high pressure. This high will bring a cooler air mass to the region with highs falling to the upper 70s and low 80s with overnight lows from the upper 50s to the low 60s. The chance of rain increases late in the week as a warm front approaches from the west. Due to the hot and stagnant air mass an AIR QUALITY ALERT has been issued for Tuesday from 10AM – 10PM.

    This is the second heat wave of 2017!

    90+ weather comes to an end as a cold front moves through tonight. Unlike Monday, only one location recorded record breaking temperatures. LaGuardia recorded a high of 98 degrees. This broke the old record of 97 set in 1961. Central Park and JFK both recorded highs of 94degrees. So for the day, we were 13 to 17 degrees above average. A cold front will bring scattered showers and possible thunderstorms to the city tonight. Some storms could be strong with gusty winds, small hail, vivid lightning and heavy rain. With the passage of the cold front, our winds will become northeasterly as high pressure over southeastern Canada moves southeast and off the New England coast Wednesday. Pleasant weather is in the forecast through Thursday under a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the 70s and 80s while overnight lows fall to the 50s and 60s. Late in the week, a warm front will advance from the west bringing clouds, scattered showers and possible thunderstorms from Friday through the last weekend of spring 2017.

    Nice weather through Thursday!

    Pleasant weather is in the forecast through Thursday as high pressure slowly moves off the northeast coast. Unsettled weather returns Friday as a warm front approaches the region from the west. This front will bring clouds, areas of patchy fog and a chance of showers Friday and Friday night. The front will begin to break-down by Saturday as it crosses the region. A south to southwest flow of warm and humid air takes over late Saturday through Monday in advance of a cold front. This will keep a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms in the forecast until the front passes on Tuesday. We’re a week away from the Summer Solstice which begins on Wednesday, June 21st at 12:24AM.

    Unsettled weather through the weekend

    An approaching warm front will bring unsettled weather to the region through the Father’s Day weekend. Scattered showers and areas of fog are in the forecast for Friday followed by scattered showers and possible thunderstorms for Saturday and Sunday. By Monday, a cold front will cross the region and stall off-shore bringing periods of rain that may be moderate to heavy at times and may generate a few thunderstorms. Drier weather returns to the region by Tuesday.

    Unsettled weather through Monday

    We’re going in to the Father’s Day weekend under a mostly cloudy sky and a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms into early next week. This is due to an approaching warm front moving in from the west and forecasted to lift north Saturday. Behind the warm front is a warm and humid air mass enhanced by a Bermuda high. A cold front will cross the Ohio valley late Sunday through Monday bringing a chance of moderate rain with a few embedded thunderstorms to start the new work week.
