Weather with Bill Evans

Good Day On This Thursday 30, 2024 Weak low pressure over southeast New England will move slowly away from the area today, with a weak low pressure trough remaining in its wake through this evening. High pressure over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley will then build toward the Mid Atlantic coast from late tonight into Friday night Saturday, and move off the coast on Saturday. Mid level shortwave moving through the area attm, with the attendant sfc low over southern MA. A few moderate to locally showers have redeveloped underneath a mid level cold pool associated with the low, and there could be isolated thunder mainly before daybreak across the NYC metro area and Long Island as it swings east. The rain should be mainly across Long Island and S CT after 8 AM, and tapering off from west to east. As the mean longer wave trough approaches later this afternoon into this evening, isolated to sct showers should develop, and a few rumbles of thunder may even be possible in spots, especially over SE CT. This activity should end by late evening. High temps today should reach the upper 60s across SE CT and the fork of Long Island, lower 70s most elsewhere, and the mid 70s across NYC and NE NJ, which is near normal. Low temps tonight will range from the mid/upper 50s invof NYC, to 45-50 across the interior and in the Long Island Pine Barrens. Fair wx expected during this time frame along with a gradual warmup as sfc high pressure builds toward the Mid Atlantic coast and vis rising heights aloft as an upper ridge builds toward the East Coast. High temps in the 70s on Friday will reach the upper 70s/lower 80s in most places on Sat, with lower/mid 70s confined to the immediate south shores of Long Island and SE CT. Low temps Fri night should be similar to those of tonight. Sunday begins with a surface high pressure ridge not too far offshore and an upper ridge overhead. The ridge aloft flattens in the afternoon and evening with the approach and passage of a shortwave. This may trigger a shower in spots Sunday afternoon and night for western and far southern portions of the forecast area. Heights recover somewhat on Monday into Tuesday with surface high pressure in control. Dry for Monday. Probably dry for Tuesday as well with deep ridging, however don`t want to remove slight chance/chance PoPs Tuesday afternoon and night just yet as there`s a chance of a surface trough and shortwave aloft triggering a shower. The pattern doesn`t change all that much for Wednesday, but models seem to agree that the ridging shifts more offshore. Slight chance/chance PoPs therefore for Wednesday as well. Sub-advisory conditions expected for the most part. There could be some wind gusts approaching 25 kt during mid to late afternoon on the ern ocean waters in offshore flow in the wake of departing low pressure, as well as seas building to 4 ft. Although southerly winds increase on Sunday, they will likely remain below advisory thresholds with seas building up to 3-4 ft by late in the day into Sunday night. Sub-advisory conditions continue on Monday. Today's rip current risk is moderate for the Suffolk beaches, where combo of SE-S long period swells and offshore flow 15 kt should build surf to 3-4 ft. Rip current risk remains low for today for the Nassau and NYC ocean beaches, and low for Friday for all the ocean beaches.
