Good evening! After a chilly late-morning and early-afternoon filled with clouds, clouds quickly eroded and gave way to mostly sunny skies. This clearing of the clouds allowed high temperatures to reach the mid 60s. However, this clearing of the clouds was provided by an area of high pressure that moved into the area, which will help set the stage for a very chilly night tonight for NYC suburbs.
We already had a chilly airmass behind two cold fronts that have moved through over the past couple of days, and each cold front also provided drier air. 850mb temperatures fell to around 0C and dewpoints are generally in the 20s to the low 30s, and this area of high pressure will also assure that skies will remain clear as well as provide a large subsidence inversion.
