The cool weather from over the weekend continues for the start of the new work-week...
Today will see a mix of sun and clouds -- with more clouds arriving later today, especially on Long Island... Winds continue to be brisk, with gusts over 30mph at times. Highs will reach the middle and upper 50s. Some light rain is possible by evening in southern NJ and Long Island (a 30% chance).
Tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy, with a slight chance of rain, (30% chance once again), particularly on Long Island. It is expected to remain breezy, with lows dropping into the 40s.
On Tuesday, a storm will be coming up the East coast...
The weather models are in better agreement today, tracking the storm far enough out to sea to keep the day dry, with perhaps a bit of light rain for Long Island (30% probability). Highs will not change much -- topping out in the 50s for one more day.
The warm-up arrives on Wednesday, as the wind direction shifts to the south -- resulting in temperatures reaching the middle and upper 60s for areas away from coast. Skies should be partly sunny.
Some showers and a thunderstorm will move in Wednesday evening or Wednesday night, as readings only drop to around 50 degrees.
Thursday will be cooler -- but Friday will be milder again. Both days should remain dry at this point.
