Forecast: Another stretch of awesome weather

There hasn’t been much to complain about lately, at least when it comes to the weather. In the last week, we have been fortunate enough to settle into a very pleasant pattern. Last week itself featured 5 straight pleasant days featuring low humidity and plenty of sun. After a brief return to humidity and a cold front with showers on Saturday into Sunday, the comfortable weather has returned again. In fact, this airmass is a bit more chilly — if you haven’t already noticed this morning. Temperatures fell into the 30’s in the interior this morning, and the upper 40’s even in the urban areas. The low of 47 was the coldest so far this season in New York City.

The good news? The pleasant weather looks to stick around through at least Friday. A disturbance in the mid levels of the atmosphere, which is meandering near the area, is washing out and weakening. High pressure settling into the area will control the weather through Saturday, as high temperatures slowly modify to reach the middle 70’s by the end of this week. The next chance for clouds and precipitation may not come until the weekend, when forecast models indicate a chance of a backdoor cold front pushing towards the area.

But looking even beyond that, guidance indicates that the area should stay clear of any major disturbances through the weekend and, yes, even into next week. It may be hard to find such a prolonged stretch of pleasant weather for quite a while after this. So we hope you are all able to enjoy it!
