Cold start to the week followed by mild temps

Weather

It was a seasonable finish to the weekend with temperatures returning to the upper 40s Sunday afternoon. However, the official high at Central Park was 56 degrees, which was recorded just after midnight. The severe weather outbreak that produced tornadoes in the Midwest brought showers and strong winds to the tri-state area followed by colder air.

Even though the storm wasn’t as severe here, there were parts of the region, including Dutchess County and some counties in New Jersey, that were under a severe thunderstorm warning. As the quick-moving squall line moved across the northeast, winds threatened to knock down trees and power lines. There were reports of power outages in the Hudson Valley as well as a tree down in East Massapequa.

Now that the storm is long gone, it leaves behind gusty winds in its wake. For Sunday night, lows will likely bottom in the 30s out under a mostly clear sky. Keep in mind that winds will make it feel colder.

However, temperatures are slated to rebound into the 50s with diminishing winds in the coming days. Additionally, highs on Thursday could come close to beating the 1971 record of 63 degrees.

As far as precipitation is concerned, there is only a chance of showers north of the city on Wednesday. The next chance of rain will be Saturday. As always, stay tuned for updates
