Forecast: Sunday brings pleasant end to weekend

NAM forecast model, showing low temperatures in the 40’s throughout most of the area Sunday Night through Monday morning. Notice the slightly warmer temperatures in NYC and on Long Island.

Another cool and pleasant autumn weekend is coming to a close — but first we have a pleasant Sunday on tap with beautiful mostly clear skies, cool temperatures, low humidity, and of course…football! Temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s are expected today with light west winds that could feel a bit breezy at times. Low humidity will be the main player in keeping things feeling fresh and comfortable, if not a bit chilly. Much of the same is expected through tonight. If you haven’t had a chance to catch the Orionid meteor shower yet, which peaked last night, get out tonight and check a few out before the shower dwindles by tomorrow.

Rest of Sunday: Gorgeous fall day will continue. Sunny, with high temperatures in the low to middle 60’s. Several degrees cooler than Saturday which featured warmer temperatures ahead of a front. But the sun will still be warm — with a light west wind. Get out and enjoy it!

Tonight: Mostly clear with low temperatures falling into the middle 40’s inland and around 50 in the city and metro areas (maybe a few degrees warmer in the usual warm spots). West winds around 10 mph will continue. Definitely bring a sweatshirt if you’re headed out.

Monday: Another gem — not much more to say. High temperatures again the middle 60’s with west winds continuing, mostly light with the occasional breeze.  Winds will shift northwest by the afternoon, but not much change in sensible weather.
