Coastal Flooding Possibilities Full Moon Strong South Wind
Watching the satellite loop this afternoon we are seeing a warm front pushing northward through New Jersey where sunshine has broken out over much of the southern half of that state. With the front to our south we are locked in clouds for this afternoon or at least until that warm front passes through sometime late this afternoon or this evening. In the mean time it is clouds and some passing showers and then we will transition into a warmer more humid air mass. The problem is that the south wind is kicking in and that is going to limit temperatures this afternoon keeping them mostly in the 50s.
Being on the edge of the warm front we are also on the edge of showers which you can see on the regional and local radar. The local radar is showing some light rain showers developing along parts of the North shore northward into Long Island Sound moving northeastward. This will continue until the warm front pushes to the north this evening.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Not much is going to happen tonight or on Friday though we will start to see some isolated to scattered downpours developing on Friday and they could occasional pass through. Much of the day will just be cloudy warm and humid. South winds will continue to pick up especially during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be in the 60s though some areas in Northern Nassau & Northwest Suffolk could push the envelope here and temperatures might push up to the upper 60s to near 70. The bulk of the rain comes later Friday night into Saturday afternoon.
Rainfall amounts should be on the order of an inch to an inch and a half with some variability due to the showery nature of the rains. Weather conditions could start to improve later in the afternoon and evening from west to east. Temperatures will be in the 60s to near 70. We also have a full moon tonight and there have been some pockets of coastal flooding at high tide already. Add to that gusty south winds to 30 mph or more along the coast and you run the risk of minor to moderate coastal flooding at the times of high tide.
EASTER SUNDAY OUTLOOK
Easter Sunday we should see improvement with breaks of sunshine with clouds. The atmosphere will still be rather unstable as an upper trough passes overhead so few passing showers are possible especially in the afternoon and evening but more often than not Sunday it will be dry with temperatures in the 60s. Dry weather kicks off next week with some sunshine on Monday and highs reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s.
