Temperatures are continuing to be on the chilly side as a persistent northerly breeze continues. Additional frost advisories have been posted for Long Island as well as coastal Connecticut for Thursday night. Temperatures in these areas will drop into the mid 30s.
Looking down the road, it is looking promising for Marathon Sunday. The forecast models are building a consensus on a storm system that will now likely track well offshore leaving us with a dry day for the runners and spectators.
A storm system passing well off the coast has brought in a cloud cover for Thursday night. Some clearing will be possible toward daybreak as the storm heads further out to sea. It will be a cold night as temperatures drop into the upper 30s in the city. Areas well inland will likely end up in the mid 20s.
Friday should be a sunny day and winds should be on the light side. Temperatures will top out in the lower 50s.
Saturday will feel like a rinse and repeat of Friday. It will be sunny with highs approaching the mid 50s.
Marathon Sunday will start out with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the lower 40s in the morning. During the day, skies will cloud up as the storm passes well offshore. Highs in the afternoon will be upper 50s.
Sunday will also be the end of Daylight Saving Time and we will gain an extra hour of sleep. Sunrise will be around 6:30am and the sun will set around 4:45pm.
The dry stretch continues into early next week, and it will be slightly warmer. Temperatures will return to the low to mid 60s through the early part of next week. The chance of showers may return during the latter part of the week as a frontal boundary approaches.
