Warmer Next Few Days Showers Monday Into Tuesday
JOE AND JOE WEATHER SHOW PODCAST THURSDAY 9/24/2020
The remnants of Tropical Storm Beta have spread clouds our way today and it has masked most of the sunshine we should have had. It didn’t stop temperatures from rising as we topped out today in the middle to upper 70s. With all the clouds that are around tonight it will help hold the temperatures up and keep them basically in the mid 50s to lower 60s. Skies could partially clear overnight at times but we don’t expect any of the rain on the radar to the south to come anywhere close to Long Island.
The rain from former Tropical Storm Beta is sliding out off the Southern Virginia coast and over the Southernmost Delmarva Peninsula. There is very little northward component of motion here. This will continue overnight and also in Friday keeping some of the high clouds around the area.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
As far as Friday if we get some breaks of sunshine in the mix and I think we will. Temperatures will make it into the mid 70s to around 80 degrees. It will likely be a little bit cooler along the shore. In fact that continues over the weekend with clouds and some sun both Saturday and Sunday with no rain. Highs both weekend days will be in the mid 70s to around 80 degrees.
This is the first of two weather fronts we will see next week that will take us on stair step decline in temperatures. As dry and rain free as this week is we will to an extent be on the other side of that equation next week. Showery rains moving in on Monday and then there should be be more showers Monday night into Tuesday. Monday will still be warm with most highs in the 70s.
Front number 1 will have cooler air behind it but we will have to wait until front number two moves through sometime on Wednesday to bring in a shot of autumn air in from Canada. So the risk for showers continues. There actually should be a decent amount of rain from these systems to alleviate the dry conditions that have developed across parts of the Northeast US in the last several weeks.
This is going to take us into a stretch of below normal temperatures that will last at least a week. This begin next Tuesday and takes us right through the first 7 days of October.
For the first time in several or more years we are actually seeing autumn weather arriving with the calendar and not getting delayed. Last year we reached 90 degrees in many areas in early October before the summer pattern finally broke down. This year you will be grabbing for sweat shirts and jackets rather than short sleeves and shorts. Happy Autumn!
