Tomorrow a cold front will slowly approach there area. Ahead of it, a few showers could develop during the morning commute but I would expect much of the action to be during the afternoon and into the evening. In terms of the amounts of rainfall, we’re not expecting too much. Generally around a .10-.25″ of rainfall which tends to suggest that these showers will be quick movers and possibly widely scattered. A gusty t-storm is also a possibility but it is expected to be isolated rather than widespread. It’ll feel very humid with temperatures in the mid 80s.

There could be a lingering shower Friday morning as the front finally sweeps across the area. Skies will brighten by midday leaving us with decent afternoon. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s. Also, it’ll be more comfortable as the humidity lowers as the day progresses.

High pressure from Canada will move in during the weekend giving us a nice weekend with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be cooler with highs around 80.


New York City reached 90 degrees which is the warmest it has been since July 20th, when we reached 93 degrees. On average, New York gets four 90 degree days during August.
