Long Island Dry Until Friday Night 70s Possible Saturday Rain Later Sunday
What a beautiful day we enjoyed today. This is what happens when you turn the wind around to the northwest and shut off the ocean wind. Sunshine dominated all day long and now we look ahead to a nice night of clear skies. Temperatures today were 10 to 15 degrees warmer than yesterday thanks to sunshine and a northwest breeze. Winds will drop off tonight and temperatures by morning will settle in the 30s to near 40. The satellite loop shows a few high clouds to the north with a heavier overcast to the northeast. Also some high clouds are out to the west. They should have no real impact here.
The ocean wind this time of year doesn’t stay away for too long and it will be back on Thursday especially in the afternoon and evening. The difference is that the wind will be south or south southwest and we should have a decent amount of sunshine with some passing high clouds. Most highs will be in the low to mid 50s but it will just be in the 40s along the shore.
Friday the major storm from the Plains will be sitting in the lower Great Lakes and weakening with a cold front approaching and passing through early Saturday morning. Look for clouds and a gusty southerly wind developing Friday. Showers will hold off until Friday night probably after midnight.
Those showers should be out of here by 7 or 8am Saturday and shortly after that sunshine will break out. West winds should allow temperatures to reach into the 70s especially away from the ocean. Of the two weekend days, Saturday is the pick because the next storm system will be moving out of the Gulf States and heading into the Ohio Valley Sunday into Monday.
Timing the arrival of rain is a bit tricky at this early stage of the game. Rain could hold off until Sunday afternoon but the bulk of the rain will be Sunday night into Monday morning. Some of the rain with this system will be heavy later Sunday night as the front gets closer. The rain should end from west to east Monday afternoon. Sunday’s highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s with a south southeast or south wind in control ahead of a warm front. Next week we should get a break for Tuesday and Wednesday and possibly into Thursday before the parade of storm systems resumes late next week.
