NEW YORK (PIX11) — A cold front passed through the area Tuesday night, allowing winds to shift to the Northeast. With the combination of 55 degree ocean waters, temperatures struggled to reach 60 Wednesday afternoon.
High pressure from Canada will continue to dip southeast allowing winds to persist from the northeast. Temperatures Wednesday will dip below 50 degrees in many places throughout the tri-state region. This is around 10-15 degrees below normal for this time of the year. There will be a little improvement for Thursday as the sun begins to break through by lunch time. Although winds will be from the east, highs will climb into the upper 60s by the afternoon.
A system will slide to our north Friday afternoon and the risk for scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop. Temperatures will climb into the lower 70s with the return of southwesterly winds. The weekend looks to be nice and pleasant with temperatures in the mid-70s. High pressure slides in making skies generally partly to mostly sunny for Saturday and Sunday. 80s could return by the middle of next week
