Damp, dreary Thursday ahead

Weather

NEW YORK — The gloomy weather continues for another day.

The low-level clouds stuck around on Wednesday and there was even a bit of misty drizzle. This was all associated with a nearly stationary front that is meandering just to the south of the region while a northeasterly flow brought in the cool and damp conditions. Expect this to continue for at least another day before conditions finally clear out.

While the low-level clouds and fog will stick around on Wednesday night, a wave of low pressure will ride along the frontal boundary and bring the chance of some light rain once again. Unlike the previous night, most of it will track to the south, but the risk of light rain or drizzle cannot be ruled out for the city.  Temperatures will be in the lower 40s.

Expect an encore for Thursday with more clouds, some fog and patchy drizzle. Late in the day, another weak disturbance could bring additional light showers around the region. Temperatures will gradually climb into the upper 40s to around 50.

Once the weak disturbance passes, high pressure will briefly pass through and temporarily clear things out on New Year’s Eve. Clouds will be on the increase once again during the latter part of the day. As for the evening, temperatures will approach 50 degrees as we ring in 2022.

Through the weekend, a potent storm is expected to arrive, and it could bring heavy downpours. It will bring very mild temperatures along with the heavy rain. Highs may hit 60 degrees on Saturday or Sunday as a robust southwesterly flow develops ahead of the storm. 

Once the storm passes, temperatures will take a nosedive heading into Monday. Highs will be in the 30s, but the blustery conditions will make it feel more like the 20s during the afternoon
