Forecast Discussion

While it will be partly cloudy and dry, a Wind Advisory will be in effect until tonight, as steady winds of 20-35 mph and gusts up to 40-45 mph will be possible. Be sure to tie down any loose outdoor items if you possibly can for the time being.

Winds will slowly start calming down on Wednesday, though it will still be breezy with the coastal low still near Long Island. Outside of the wind and an occasional shower or sprinkle, Wednesday will provide a very brief quiet stretch with high pressure moving in. Mostly clear skies will continue into Thursday, but clouds will start to return with another very amplified and strong storm system pushing out of the center of the country. This is the same storm that produced very heavy rainfall across the Pacific Northwest this past weekend, and its rain will start arriving here Thursday night.

The combination of this low at the surface, as well as a massive upper-level low aloft, is what’s going to help produce a very steady rain on Friday. Along with those two ingredients, a very steady onshore flow will funnel even more moisture from the Atlantic Ocean. Flooding issues are not out of the question Friday into Saturday, especially over the higher elevations if heavier rain bands get going. Thankfully, this storm will be moving on by the end of the weekend, with scattered showers on Saturday but then partly cloudy skies and much drier conditions just in time for Halloween. Temperature-wise, it’s going to be seasonably cool but not cold by any means just yet.

Hold onto your hats and have a great Tuesday!
