Forecast: Clouds and rain hang around for one more day

Aside from a few outlier days which featured sun and warmth, the first ten days of October have been rough. Assuming you’re not a fan of prolonged clouds and cold rain, things have been bleak over the past week and a half. With very little periods of sun and warmth, your sweatshirts, jeans, and hoodies are probably worn out by now. Wednesday will provide much of the same — no real buck in the trend as far as sensible weather goes. Showers, cool air, and clouds will be around for most of the day. But the good news is that the weather pattern is changing, and a front passing the area Wednesday Night will sweep the bleak airmass away (for now). Lots of sun is expected from Thursday through Sunday, and we’re probably just as excited as you are. Your complete forecast, including the ALDS Game 3 forecast details are below — hopefully the Yankees can take care of this series in the Bronx this weekend.

Wednesday: Morning drizzle and showers are likely with a southeast flow off the water. Cool temperatures once again with some higher humidity.  Some clearing is possible by afternoon — but still more clouds than sun. There is another increased chance of showers in the mid afternoon with the possibility of a very isolated stronger shower capable of producing pea sized hail. Winds will shift to the southwest and be primarily light.

Wednesday Night/ALDS Game 3 Yanks vs Os Forecast: There could be some showers around very early in the game and especially an hour or two before the game with the front moving through. Expect skies to gradually clear as the game goes on. It will be brisk, with game-time temperatures starting around 60 degrees but quickly falling to the low 50s and perhaps even upper 40s at game’s end. It will be breezy as well, with west winds around 15mph, but those winds should diminish as the game progresses.

Thursday and Friday: Both look to be sunny with highs in the low 60s. Thursday night should see lows in the mid 40s and a few degrees cooler in the suburbs.  Friday night will be a couple of degrees colder, and may feature lows cold enough for frost in the suburbs. Looking ahead, Friday Night could provide the first potential freeze in some areas. The airmass moving in looks to bring a serious shot of cool air — and temperatures could fall into the 30’s throughout the area by early Saturday morning.
