NEW YORK — After a gorgeous day with temperatures climbing up into the mid 60s, changes are on the way.
Expect some clouds and a chilly wind to develop on Wednesday. On Thursday, a cold front will bring some showers and it could be heavy Thursday night into Friday with concerns of flooding on the table.
Skies will remain clear for the first part of Tuesday night. During the overnight period clouds will filter into the region as a weak wave of low pressure passes to the south. Temperatures will be in the lower 40s.
Wednesday could briefly feature some breaks of sun early, but clouds will quickly thicken as an easterly wind develops. There could even be a stray shower or sprinkle at one point during the day.The winds coming off the cooler ocean waters will keep highs in thelower 50s.
The risk of showers does not really ramp up until Wednesday night into early Thursday. A few showers will be possible from time to time as a warm front approaches the region and settles just to the south of the city. Temperatures will climb to around 60, but it will also be rather breezy with gusts to 30 mph at times.
The trailing cold front will bring heavier downpours Thursday night and Friday morning. There is a risk that flooding will be a possibility as rainfall amounts could easily exceed an inch by the time it starts to wind down by Friday midday.
Even then, an upper level low will stick around keeping it rather cloudy and unsettled with some leftover showers into Friday afternoon. Ifthe sun is able to break out of the clouds during the day, temperatures will be able to go into the lower 60s.
Saturday features improving conditions. The upper level low will slowly depart allowing for the more sunshine especially during the afternoon hours. Winds will be more westerly bringing temperatures up into the mid 60s.
High pressure to the south will bring a more southwesterly wind for Sunday. That should help bring temperatures up briefly toward 70 degrees.
