Saint Patricks Day Sunshine Cold Rocky Point Parade
We all know that Long Island in the springtime is not the most ideal place to be weather wise. Warm air tries to get here and it always gets cut off by the very cold ocean. Temperatures today across New Jersey made into the 60s to around 70 away from the coast. No such luck here thanks to that south wind. Highs only just made it into the 50s before the south wind picked up to 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts and that knocked most temperatures back down into the 40s. We can see the high clouds on the satellite loop but there are breaks in between. We will likely have patchy high clouds tonight. The south wind will likely pick up and get rather gusty later tonight as a cold front approaches. Most lows will be in the 40s.
The south wind will become more southwest during Friday which will allow temperatures to get a little higher but we will still be about 10 degrees lower than places to the west. Highs could reach the 60s in Northern Nassau & Northwest Suffolk County briefly before easing back. Some showers will probably come through late in the afternoon and evening but we don’t expect anything other than a few showers with perhaps a brief heavy downpour.
Saturday brings sunshine and some clouds along with a gusty northwest breeze. Highs will be just into the 50s. Colder air will bring temperatures down into the upper 20s and lower 30s Sunday morning under clear skies. Sunday Saint Patrick’s Day will be sunny but cold. Highs will just be in the lower 40s at best so dress warm if you are head out for the Rocky Point Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. It might be on the breezy side for awhile Sunday but winds should ease a bit later in the day.
Sunday night into Monday a weak low from the Great Lakes will be dropping southeastward. This is going to be a weak system as there is no support aloft for anything substantial to develop. Temperatures are going to be borderline so some rain or wet snow is possible late Sunday night into Monday morning. At worst there would be enough to whiten the ground but that should be about it.
This system moves away Monday morning and weather conditions improve as the day wears on. Some sunshine should develop later in the day with highs into the 40s. Tuesday and Wednesday look nice and dry. We could push it further into Thursday and Friday depending on the track of the next system that will arrive for end of the week. Winter is ending and spring is arriving without the noise of noreasters like last year.
