NEW YORK (PIX11) — It is looking all good for the first weekend of June. A weak area of high pressure will keep us dry for the next few days. No extreme heat is expected in the near future but temperatures will be on the warm side. Looking to the south, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance that could become for the first tropical storm of the hurricane season.
As far as Friday night goes around here, skies will feature a few patchy clouds. Overnight temperatures will end up dropping into the lower 60s overnight.
For Saturday, expect mostly sunny skies with temperatures will ending up at around 80 degrees. A weak cold front may pass through bringing nothing more than a few clouds around.
Sunday looks to feature wall-to-wall sunshine. A light wind from the north will bring daytime highs back down into the mid 70s
The sunny conditions will continue into Monday with highs in the upper 70s.
Things start to get iffy heading into Tuesday and Wednesday as a frontal boundary brings the threat of an isolated shower or thunderstorm around. Temperatures will hover in the upper 70s to around 80.
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring what could be the first tropical storm of the season. While the storm is centered in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, the storm is very unorganized with most of the clouds and heavy rain associated with well east of the center. Regardless of whether it becomes a named storm or not, it is already pounding Southern Florida with heavy rain that could cause considerable flash flooding.
The brunt of the storm looks to affect the region from the overnight hours of Friday night through Saturday afternoon with tropical storm force winds and rainfall amounts exceeding 8 inches in some cases. From there, the storm looks to track out into the Atlantic, but it may create rough surf for our coastline later next week.
