A mix of sun and clouds is expected across the tristate area today as temperatures this afternoon warm into the 50s for highs. Fortunately, we will not have to deal with the breezy conditions that we dealt with on Wednesday.
Warmer temperatures and the chance for rain showers will return to the area on Friday as a cold front moves in from the west. The best chance for showers will come late tomorrow night and could potentially linger into the day on Saturday as the frontal boundary is likely to weaken and slow as it moves across the region.
Temperatures on Friday will reach highs in the middle to upper 60s with highs potentially into the lower to mid 70s on Saturday. Total rainfall amounts of a quarter of an inch or so are expected with localized heavier amounts possible.
Clouds and the chance for showers and thunderstorms will continue through Sunday and into the day in Monday as a second cold front moves through. This frontal boundary will have the potential to bring more rainfall to the area with many of us seeing over half of an inch.
We will have to monitor the potential for slow-moving storms late Sunday night and early Monday. I’ll have more information on that rain threat and what to expect next week in tomorrow morning’s post.
