Long Island Warm Humid Monday Ida Rains Later Wednesday Into Thursday Morning

We wait for Ida’s rains which will arrive later Wednesday and last into Thursday morning. Until then we deal with the weekend stalled front which has weakened and moved northward putting us back into some sunshine and warm humid conditions. Temperatures this afternoon will top in the low to mid 80s though it should be a little cooler at the shore. Another cold front will approach late today into tonight and that could trigger a shower or thunderstorm. Severe weather risk today is to our north and east in Coastal New England.

Once the front passes it will do what weather fronts have done all summer long. It stalls just offshore. This will leave us in some clouds with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Tuesday will be a partly sunny day with most highs in the lower 80s.

Early Ida rainfall estimates are for a couple of inches of rain into Thursday morning when the rains will end from west to east but these amounts could go higher and we feel more comfortable with idea of a 2 to 4 inch rainfall for Long Island assuming that the remnant low passes by to our south.

The low on the NAM model today rides right on top of us which would put the heaviest rain just to our north but barely. A shift a little more to the south could put us in higher rainfall amounts. We anticipate the National Weather Service local office in Upton NY to put Long Island under a flash flood watch for later Wednesday into Thursday. They could do that as early as this evening. Once the rains end we are going to see a nice dry air mass behind it. Friday and Saturday are looking to be great days of sunshine and very low humidity. The second half of the weekend looks warmer and more humid with some scattered thunderstorm risk but overall the weekend is looking good.
