  • High Fire Danger

    The lack of rain, very dry air today with gusty winds 30 mph and sunshine all day are the ingredients necessary for today’s Red Flag Warning. As the rainfall deficit now approaches 4 inches, there is no rain forecast until Saturday (even that will be light). Today’s high is about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, not reaching the 70s. Tonight cools down into the 40s with less wind. The clear sky tomorrow will help highs warm into the low 70s. Friday begins with veiled sunshine as thin clouds work into our skies throughout the day. Highs reach the mid 70s, but clouds thicken up through the afternoon. Light, spotty showers should begin overnight into Saturday morning with clouds remaining on Saturday morning. Sunny breaks should appear Saturday afternoon. Sunday is the sunnier and warmer half of the weekend.

  • Drop 10…Do it Again

    Once the early morning fog lifts along the coast, hazy and humid weather dominates the forecast today. Beyond a midday shower, rain will be minimal today as sunshine returns this afternoon. Less humid air moves in the evening, sending overnight lows into the 50s; that’s a 10 degree drop from this morning’s low. Dry and sunny weather with low humidity begins tomorrow and lasts through Friday. Thursday morning’s low will be another 10 degrees cooler at 48. Highs struggle to reach 70 despite all the sun. Blue skies become veiled by thin clouds on Friday afternoon due to Saturday morning’s rain. The light and spotty showers will create a damp and cool morning Saturday, with fog along the coast due to a light south wind. Saturday afternoon sees some breaks of sun. Sunday is the sunnier day this weekend.

    mike
  • Hazy, Hot and Humid

    Today’s temperature is about 2 degrees warmer than yesterday. All the haze and humidity lingers into tomorrow, where highs near 90 across some parts of the city. A late day shower or quick storm both days can’t be ruled out. Tomorrow evening begins a dramatic cool down that will make mornings feel chilly this week. Beginning Wednesday, mornings will begin around 45 with dry weather. Afternoon highs midweek only reach the upper 60s under mostly sunny skies. That cool pattern lasts through Friday. Late Friday night, light rain moves in, causing the Brooklyn Half Marathon to begin on a wet note. Sunshine gradually wins the afternoon sky, and highs return to 78 Saturday afternoon. Sunday and Monday are sunny and seasonably warm.
  • Marine Layer

    This morning’s fog is a similar scenario to LA or San Francisco’s daily weather: light breeze blowing off 52 degree ocean water. Since tropical storms typically don’t form this early, the ocean hasn’t warmed up enough yet to prevent the fog from occurring. (The Pacific always stays in the 50s) This afternoon, however, is warm and sunny with a touch of humidity. Ana will continue to spin to our South, delayed from becoming fully tropical since ocean temperatures are too cool. While she looks legit on satellite and radar, Ana is still getting some of her energy from the atmosphere, not all from the ocean, so she’s not entirely a true tropical storm yet. (it’s like what happened to Sandy, but in reverse). Each weekend morning will be even more foggy and cloudy due to the east wind (again, thanks to Ana), but afternoon clearing should help bring sunny and warm weather by Sunday, later in the day. I think tomorrow’s clouds will be too thick to offer much afternoon sun at all. Brooklyn even sees a light morning mist tomorrow. Mother’s Day clears out in the afternoon with sunshine and a high of 82.

    Monday and Tuesday should wet with some showers nearby, but not washouts. Wednesday and Thursday turn windy and cooler with dry and chilly mornings ahead beginning Thursday and lasting into next weekend.

    mike
  • Add 10 degrees

    This afternoon brings back the upper 70s with sunshine, about 10 degrees warmer than yesterday’s highs. Tomorrow’s highs flirt with 80 until late clouds arrive tomorrow night, possibly with a light shower. Saturday and Sunday’s high clouds will be a result of Ana’s strengthening in the Atlantic. With a southwest wind all weekend, however, highs should be in the low 80s regardless. Monday and Tuesday begins to cool down, with showers and storms Tuesday. Wednesday brings back some drier and cooler winds with a long stretch of clear sky through the end of next weekend. After some chilly starts in the 40s late next week, afternoon highs should finally settle around average in the low 70s. While our rainfall deficit continues to grow, (approaching 3 inches below average) the reservoirs are at normal capacity of 98.5%. Lawn and garden watering required.

    mike
  • Muggy with Showers

    Spotty light rain today gives way to just clouds later this afternoon. Cooler weather offers temperatures in the 60s today thanks to a wind shift. Tomorrow is clear and dry, with sunshine taking highs all the way to the mid 80s this weekend. Expect fog on Friday morning. Saturday and Sunday’s weather will likely have extra high thin clouds due to Ana forming off the Carolinas. Her moisture supercharges our rain and thunderstorms for Tuesday, giving us much needed downpours. Cooler weather returns to finish next week. Clear and sunny weather arrives to start next weekend.

    mike
  • Warm and Muggy

    As if yesterday’s highs in the mid 80s weren’t warm enough for early May, the very dry air made the weather feel comfortable. Today’s humidity adds a muggy feel while highs still climb into the upper 70s under partial sunshine. Clouds thicken up later this morning and bring in some spotty showers, of the hit-or-miss variety this afternoon. The best chance of 20 minute shower is after 5 or 6 pm. Rain chances go up tonight and tomorrow morning with umbrellas recommended for Wednesday morning’s commute. Cooler weather tomorrow in the 60s promotes thick fog Wednesday night and Thursday morning. The fog lifts by Thursday afternoon with sunny weather through the weekend. Highs will be in the 80s on Saturday and Sunday. Monday and Tuesday’s rain is dependent on how much Ana develops, and where she decides to go.

    mike
  • High Fire Danger

    Our lack of precip this Spring has finally caught up to us. At nearly a 2.5 inch rainfall deficit for the season and growing, our greenery (measured by satellite) is 20-30% below normal to date. Today’s warm weather and dry winds prompted a Fire Weather Warning from the Weather Service. Since flowers don’t spontaneously combust, smokers are urged to dispose of lit cigarettes responsibly and construction workers use caution with open flames or sparking equipment as fire could spread rapidly and easily. After a brief round of rain tomorrow, the lack of rain situation worsens as dry, warm weather returns with high temperatures above average for the next two weeks. That last sentence is pending the formation of the season’s first tropical storm, about one month before hurricane season begins. “Ana” could be named by the weekend. Her movement should be stationary, off the South Carolina coast, but a tropical system’s future movement is difficult to pin down, especially when the storm hasn’t formed yet.

    mike
  • Cooler than Average

    This afternoon’s highs will be about 10 degrees below average. Tomorrow brings back mostly sunny skies with temperatures climbing through the 70s on Sunday. Highs should near 80 by Monday, and that May-like feel brings back afternoon showers and storms to start cooling things down by Tuesday. Dry air returns with a seasonably mild feel through the end of next week. There is no frost in the future. It’s safe to plant in-ground.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.
    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Summerlike

    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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Stormy Finish

    Early rumbles of thunder this morning is the sound of warmer air arriving for today as it clashes with the cold. This morning started chilly, again in the 30s. By noon, temperatures will be in the 50s. The mild weather keeps pushing highs into the 60s today, under mostly cloudy skies with fog. By 5:30pm, tonight’s storms arrive with more thunder, lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds. They won’t be severe. All storms clear by 9pm tonight. Tomorrow starts sunny, but some afternoon clouds return. Sunday and Monday are milder with sunshine: highs near 70 by Monday. Next week is much warmer and much drier with the week’s only rain forecast to fall on Tuesday.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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).

    mike
  • 4 Days of Rain

    While April and rain go hand in hand, the weekend looks just as beautiful as yesterday. Today through Friday has light rain and cool weather. None of the rain through Friday is heavy. The coolest days are tomorrow and Thursday, while Friday brings mild weather (but still rain). Highs make a run for the upper 60s by the weekend under mostly sunny skies.

    mike
  • 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.
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Rainy

    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.

    mike
  • March Madness

    Big temperature swings arrive tomorrow evening. After another start in the upper 20s this morning, the afternoon gradually warms into the low 40s—just a touch milder than yesterday. Lows dip to freezing tonight, but warm to near 50 tomorrow afternoon with light showers arriving in the late afternoon/evening. Thursday morning begins muggy and mild, in the 50s, with highs reaching the 60s Thursday afternoon. A line of spring thunderstorms returns Thursday night, cooling the weather down back below average through Friday. There’s no way around it: the weekend is COLD. Windy conditions make Saturday feel like the teens and 20s. Sunday starts colder. Numbers eventually rise by the middle of next week.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Got Spring?

    Despite the 3-4” of snow on the roads at 6:45pm tonight, the Vernal Equinox still occurs. While the radar will show snow over the borough by 8am this morning, the air is far too dry for that snow to reach the ground until later in the morning. Yesterday’s prolonged afternoon sunshine is also affecting today’s forecast for the better: the first inch or two melts on pavement contact. Grass and car-tops should still have their 4-5 inches by tonight. The worst of the snow is still between 2-7pm as snow will rapidly accumulate during that time. Freezing temperatures tonight and clouds tomorrow morning keep the snow around until tomorrow afternoon when sunshine returns. A quick, light round of rain will likely fall tomorrow evening. The rest of the forecast is sunny, dry and warmer by the middle of next week.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.
    mike
  • Frozen Leprechauns

    While rainbows won’t follow today’s rain, the sunshine this afternoon brings back a Winter chill. Showers end by 11am today, with sunny breaks in the clouds by noon. Full clearing takes over after 2pm, as gusty winds drop the temperature down to 28 tonight. It will feel like the teens at daybreak tomorrow. Sunny, and cold weather persists through Thursday with clouds returning Friday morning. Snow arrives after midday Friday and likely accumulates through the Friday evening commute. It’s a coastal storm, so final totals will be track dependent (I’ve seen as little as 1 inch to as much as 9 with the most likely scenario being 2-3”). We’ll have a better idea on snowfall amounts tomorrow morning. Yes, it should be snowing as Spring begins at 6:45pm Friday evening.

    Looking for a Spring warm up? Try April…the rest of this month is about 10 below average.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Spring Tease

    Beyond this morning’s curtain of dense fog, this afternoon’s weather is a welcome sign of Spring. As highs near 60 (they’re already in the mid-40s this morning) sunshine abounds all afternoon, helping it feel warm. Tomorrow and Friday are cooler with cloud-free skies. In advance of Friday night’s rain, thin clouds veil the sunset on Friday evening. Rain lasts all day Saturday. This time, it will be too warm to snow or even ice. Sunday starts with light showers, tapering to a drizzle, but temperatures drop throughout the day. Sunday morning will be warmer than Sunday afternoon. Expect mostly cloudy skies for most of the day. Monday is chilly once more. We’ll wrap up the last few days of Winter exactly how we began: with a clipper and light snow on Tuesday. The rest of next week is cooler than average (48).

    mike
  • Spring Rain

    There are just 10 days until Spring begins, and highs are already climbing well above average. Today starts mostly cloudy with rain arriving by the afternoon. About a half inch of rain falls before midnight. Tomorrow is much like yesterday in that it starts cloudy, but adds about 6 or 7 degrees of warmth to the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Some places could reach 60 on Wednesday. Our Spring Fling doesn’t last long; however, Thursday and Friday are clear and cooler. The rain begins early on Saturday, lasting all day. At times, it might mix with wet snowflakes. Little or no accumulation. Sunday clears by midday turning windy and colder. Next week may feel like Winter all over again. Highs will be below average starting Monday, and successive shots of abnormally cold air punch down from Canada through the end of March.
    mike
  • Sunny, then Snow

    Today’s high of near 40 with mostly sunny skies will aid in a big thaw. While pleasant, that’s still about 6 degrees below average. Refreezing occurs tonight as lows dip into the teens. Tomorrow begins cloudy with snow beginning in the afternoon. About an inch of snow accumulates from 4p to 10p, with ice, before changing to rain early Wednesday morning. Rain all day Wednesday and Wednesday night amounts to nearly 2 inches. Temperatures stay in the mid 40s. Early Thursday morning gets cold enough to change back to snow. The next round of cold air comes in hard. Friday morning’s wind chill is below 0. Friday through Sunday remains clear and slightly below average (40).

    mike
  • 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.

    mike
  • Above Freezing!

    As of this morning, the average temperature of February fell to 23.8. That makes it tied with Jan 1875 for the 8th coldest month on record (up from 10th yesterday), and the third coldest February (up from 4th yesterday). These numbers still have time to climb the ranks thanks to much colder air arriving for the last few days of the month. Today, however, will feel closer to average, thanks to highs that climb to 35. The normal high is 44. Tomorrow morning brings back clouds with daytime snow staying just off to the South. The worst case scenario is 1 inch by tomorrow afternoon if the system takes the last-minute 50 mile jog to the north. It’s highly unlikely. The harsh cold’s return tonight nudges that system out to sea. The weekend looks clear; with another round of record cold for Saturday morning. Monday could be icy with a slow moving system that drags in moisture Sunday night.

    mike
  • Dry and Cold

    With another round of records set this morning, the cold isn’t over just yet. Despite highs climbing above freezing briefly tomorrow, another shot of Arctic air comes in for Friday/Saturday. The Saturday, Feb 28th low is also in jeopardy. With all these new daily records being set, monthly records are in sight, too. This February is on track to be in the Top 5 coldest Februaries on record, and in the Top 10 coldest months of all time with an average temperature of 24.2F, more than 10 below average. Dry weather persists this week, with all systems deflected to the South and East. Next chance for precip (probably frozen/mix) is Sunday Night/Monday.

    mike
  • Cold yet Quiet

    The 4th record low in the last 7 days will break tonight. After a relatively mild start this morning, temperatures are in free-fall mode and will drop significantly throughout the day, with wind. Tomorrow morning’s wind chill will be minus 14. The only positive result from this cold air is that several storms are deflected to our South this week, creating a quiet 7 day. The next mild day is Sunday, March 1st. with sunshine and highs in the 40s (similar to yesterday).

  • Mildest Day Yet!

    It’s sad when the 19 degree start is considered “mild” by comparison. Today will be an extension of yesterday afternoon’s weather: mild and sunny with calm winds, 28. Expect lots of puddles, and sun glare. Tonight brings back more snow. Shocker. After midnight, light snow begins, but wraps up by daybreak, only leaving a dusting on cars. It melts on even side streets. Throughout tomorrow winds gust early to 35mph, making the am rush quite cold with temperatures feeling like -5. Air temperatures fall throughout all day Thursday, bottoming out at 3 degrees on Friday morning (2nd record low broken in one week). Friday morning’s wind chill is -20. Friday night gets even colder with an overnight low of 1. That would set a third record low this week.

    Saturday likely ends with snow, with the system changing to ice and sleet on Sunday. That’s how it looks today. This is an ever-evolving system, and the forecast will change for the weekend. The weather is obviously moody.
