Good Morning,

The "official high" of 62 degrees in Central Park occurred shortly after 4 a.m. yesterday. In the wake of yesterday's frontal passage, the Tri-State Area has been drying out overnight, and most temperatures this morning are starting out in the 30s...

This is definitely a big change within the past 24 hours, because even though most folks stepped out of their doors between 6 and 8 a.m. needing rain gear and having to dress for temperatures which were in the upper 40s or lower 50s, we must not forget that several places were actually in the lower 60s in many places up until shortly after 4 a.m. — and daytime temperatures peaked in the 60s on both Sunday and Monday...

Even though temperatures today are expected to struggle mightily to get out of the 40s, and it probably won't in several places, we won't be lacking for sunshine.

There should be plenty of sun over the next few days, compliments of a large area of high pressure that will be building into the Eastern Region... Actually, taking a "step back" and looking at the weather across the entire nation, we don't see too many problem areas over the next few days...

Although a nearly stationary front is going to cause a few showers in Florida, most places from the Rockies and Plains all the way to the East Coast will be dry... That makes temperature forecasting our biggest challenge; most temperatures tomorrow will return to the upper 40s and lower 50s again after a chilly night tonight, and then Friday and Saturday will offer a fairly modest warming trend...

There will be a mix of clouds and sunshine by the time we reach the weekend, with most temperatures either reaching the lower or middle 50s.

The surface weather charts on Sunday will be featuring a relatively strong ridge of high pressure, which will be located over eastern Canada (about 1035 millibars, or 30.56 inches of mercury)... And, while this will tend to 'anchor itself' over the northern latitudes, this means that the focus of our attention will be turning to the western Atlantic Ocean...

Yes, there has been talk about the development of yet another coastal storm, and both the G.F.S. and European do show a wave of low pressure Sunday night and Monday that will be gaining strength between the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Bermuda... There does become a point where the solutions of these models diverge, though the G.F.S. shows this low pressure system sliding harmlessly out to sea on Tuesday, but last night's 00z run of the European isn't as 'progressive' as the domestic models.

This is not meant to imply that any coastal storm will be getting "reeled into" the East Coast early next week, like "Sandy" was, for example... But, we should at least be talking about how some of the 'fringe effects' of an ocean storm could be felt around here early next week — it may just be lots of clouds, a little rain and some gusty winds and rough surf/large swells along the coast, but it may not just "turn out being sunny" next Monday and Tuesday, either...

We'll continue to monitor this situation very closely.

Have a good day!!!
