Long Island Week Ahead Looks Mostly Dry Hurricane Sam Passes Well to the East

We certainly enjoyed another beautiful day of weather on Long Island with plenty of sunshine, temperatures in the 70s and low humidity. Autumn is probably the best time of year on Long Island at least through the first half of the season with lots of dry days, cooling temperatures, and reasonable humidity. After a minor interruption Tuesday as a cold front passes we will see dry and cool weather Wednesday through Saturday. Temperatures this afternoon topped in the 70s. The radars are nice and quiet and we should see mainly clear skies through most of the night with lows mostly in the 50s.

The humidity comes up a bit Tuesday ahead of a cold front that will likely pass through Tuesday afternoon. Ahead of that we could see some showers and possibly a thunderstorm. The main threat will be during the afternoon and early evening until the front moves offshore. Temperatures Tuesday will be in the 70s. The Storm Prediction Center is not indicating any severe weather risk for Long Island and we think any stronger storms will be to the south of Long Island.

A trough will be strengthening off the East Coast creating a northerly flow aloft for the remainder of the week. It will also keep Hurricane Sam from threatening the East Coast. Rather, Sam will turn northward and pass east of Bermuda late week and then head northeastward toward Newfoundland over the weekend. Meanwhile high pressure builds in from the north and gets a re-enforcement from another high late in the week.

About the only issue I see is perhaps some instability clouds that could be around Wednesday and Thursday as weak upper troughs go by but skies should be no worse than partly sunny on those two days and mostly sunny skies are forecast for Friday. Highs will be just in the 60s each day and nighttime lows will likely be down in the lower 50s and perhaps even the seasons first 40s will pop up in some of the colder spots. Right now Saturday looks like a good day with sunshine and highs will reach 65 to 70. Sunday is a little tricky as low pressure comes out of the Southern Plains and will likely track to our south. Some clouds are likely for now but we will leave any mention of rain out of the forecast for the time being.
