Probably not the headline you were looking for, eh?
But this upcoming week isn't like the weekend. We're not bogged down in a north/northeast wind with rain and raw temps. This time around, we're right on the edge of warm, humid air. I'm here to tell you that it won't be swinging into New England this week, but just being near that airmass means our temps won't stray too far from 70 either.
Warm front tries to push through tomorrow. This time of year, it rarely makes it, and I'm not seeing a whole lot of evidence that it will this time around either. So we're looking at lots of clouds tomorrow with very little in the way of wet weather. Best chance of a shower is tomorrow afternoon and evening. Still in the clouds (and showers) Wednesday as the warm front sits virtually motionless across Long Island.
So where's the good news this week? See the first paragraph. About 70 tomorrow, mid/upper 60s Wed/Thu/Fri. I'm hopefull that we might see some clearing by Thursday afternoon, but I'm not making any promises. Seems that every time I think I have the timing of the sun/rain down, the next set of weather maps comes out with a totally new timetable for their arrival/departure.
Long range there's something all the maps can agree on. After this weekend, it'll start to feel more like October around here. I have my money on a good frost/freeze the second week of October too.
We'll get them 'skeeters!!
