7:00 AM | An extended stretch of chilly weather begins on Sunday after a couple of nice days; next important rain threat comes by mid-week

Discussion

High pressure will push in today and generate nice weather around here as we end the work week and begin the weekend. Another strong cold front, however, will whip through the region tomorrow night and it’ll turn much cooler for an extended period of time beginning Sunday. High temperatures today and Saturday will not be far from the 70 degree mark, but should generally be confined to the 50’s on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The cold front will primarily pass through on the dry side tomorrow evening; however, a shower or two cannot be ruled out; especially, in the western suburbs and the breeze will kick up noticeably late tomorrow and it'll stay quite windy tomorrow night and Sunday. Low pressure will drop southeastward from the Great Lakes region into the Mid-Atlantic by Tuesday and it could then strengthen along the east coast at mid-week giving us the chance for some rain on both Tuesday and Wednesday along with continued cool conditions. Elsewhere, Gonzalo weakened a bit overnight, but it remains a major hurricane (category 3) this morning with sustained winds at 130 mph and it makes its closest approach to Bermuda today bringing with it hurricane-force winds for several hours and a strong storm surge.

7:00 AM | Rain threat hangs on early today…big improvement waits until tomorrow and Saturday

6-Day Forecast

Tonight

Mostly cloudy, turning cooler late, maybe an evening shower, upper 50’s towards morning

Friday

Mostly sunny, rather nice, low 70’s

Friday Night

Partly cloudy, cool, near 55 degrees for lows

Saturday

Mostly sunny, seasonably cool, becoming breezy, maybe a shower late, upper 60’s

Sunday

Mostly sunny, breezy, quite cool, upper 50’s

Mostly sunny, still quite cool, upper 50's

Tuesday

Partly sunny, quite cool, chance for showers late, upper 50’s

Discussion

The powerful cold front that generated heavy rain around here late yesterday and again last night will slowly pull away from the region to the northeast this morning, but it’ll stay somewhat unsettled through the afternoon as the upper-level low associated with the surface front passes nearby. Big improvement comes for tomorrow and Friday as high pressure returns to the region, but it turns quite cool beginning Sunday for an extended period of time following the passage of another cold front. High temperatures from Sunday through Tuesday of next week will likely be confined to the 50's in much of the I-95 corridor.

Elsewhere, on the tropical front, Gonzalo has reached major hurricane status (category 4) with sustained winds at 140 mph and is bearing down on Bermuda with a serious hit expected there on Friday. It is the first Atlantic hurricane to reach category 4 status since 2011 (Ophelia). Fortunately, the US mainland has not been hit by a major hurricane since the crazy year of 2005 - the longest stretch without a major hurricane in the US since at least the year 1900. In the Pacific Ocean, Tropical Storm Ana is likely to miss Hawaii to the south later this week.

1:00 PM | **Heavy rain and embedded strong thunderstorms**

Discussion

An active cold frontal system supported by vigorous upper-level energy will generate heavy showers and potential strong thunderstorms in the I-95 corridor into early Thursday. Heavy rain on the order of 1-3 inches has the potential to create some localized flooding problems during the next 18 hours or so. The heaviest and steadiest rain will end by early tomorrow, but residual showers are possible later Thursday as the powerful upper-level low associated with this dynamic system passes nearby. High pressure will bring improvement to the Mid-Atlantic region as we close out the work week and begin the weekend with the return of some sunshine, but it'll turn noticeably cooler for Sunday and Monday.

Discussion

An active cold frontal system supported by vigorous upper-level energy will generate heavy showers and potential strong thunderstorms in the NYC metro region from late today into early Thursday. Heavy rain on the order 1-3 inches has the potential to create some localized flooding problems and scattered strong thunderstorms are possible during this upcoming heavy rain event. The heaviest and steadiest rain will end early tomorrow, but residual showers are possible Thursday afternoon as the upper-level low associated with this dynamic system passes nearby. High pressure will bring improvement to the Mid-Atlantic region as we close out the work week and begin the weekend with the return of some sunshine, but it'll turn noticeably cooler for Sunday and Monday.
