Beautiful, summery weather is store for this weekend with high pressure north and east of region in control. Today will have plenty of sunshine with temperatures rising into upper 80s around 90 this afternoon, especially inland. Light easterly winds may keep some areas near the shore a little cooler in the lower to middle 80s. These temperatures, are still several degrees warmer than average for this time year. But humidity will be more comfortable. Skies will remain mostly clear tonight with temperatures dropping into lower 70s over NYC metro and down into 60s in suburbs overnight.
Sunday will be mostly sunny again with high temperatures likely in middle to upper 80s, at least over inland sections. However, with high pressure further shifting northeast of the region, this will cause more southeast winds and sea-breezes to develop during the afternoon, especially over parts of Long Island and other south-facing shore. Which may see high temperatures only in the lower to middle 80s tomorrow. Which is still slightly above average. Some other highlights for the next few days:
- Temperatures may approach 90 degrees on Monday, after a weak cold front with an isolated shower, passes through early in day.
- Invest 99L remains very disorganized this weekend. But a few models still show this system becoming a significant tropical cyclone in the Gulf of Mexico next week.
- Some significant swells from Tropical Storm Gaston staying well out in the Atlantic, could affect NJ and Long Island beaches by next week.
