Wind Advisory Long Island Sunday Afternoon Evening Gusts to 50 MPH

Long Island had a winner of a day with lots of sun from start to finish. Now we head into a different type of day Sunday as a strong cold front approaches. There are no issues however for tonight as skies are clear on the satellite and there are no echoes on the radar. We should be clear most if not all night with lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s. The winds are going around to the south and that keeps temperatures up tonight.

Wind Advisories are up for Long Island and Gale Warnings are up for the coastal waters. South winds ahead of the cold front will increase to 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph at times. We  are headed for a new moon Sunday which will add to tidal flooding issues at high tide Sunday into Sunday night until the cold front passes for south facing shorelines.


After the front moves offshore, gusty northwest winds take over and as the GFS model shows above, the pressure gradient over the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states remains tight right into Wednesday! Winds will likely be close to advisory criteria so we will wait and see whether the National Weather Service puts the wind advisory up for the entire area Sunday night and/or Monday.

Monday will be a windy and chilly day with sunshine and some instability clouds. Winds will gust to 30 mph or more at times. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Tuesday brings another cold front with a rain or snow shower. Temperatures on Tuesday will top in the low to mid 40s and it will continue to be breezy to windy at times especially along the coast. This takes us to Wednesday morning when lows will likely be in the 20s to near 30.

Wednesday will be a very cold day indeed with ineffective sunshine and temperatures that will barely make it back to 40 in some places. Most highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s and the wind will still be cranking for at least part of the day but it may finally start to drop off Wednesday night.

We will take another trip down into the 20s to near 30 for lows Thursday morning under a clear sky and if winds completely drop off some teens in cold spots are not out of the question. Thursday sees plenty of sunshine with highs in the low to mid 40s.
