A complicated, but weak, old storm passing to the north of the Great Lakes gave us light rain this morning and will possibly a passing shower this afternoon. The overcast skies and northeasterly wind will keep the temperature to the upper 50s near the city and lower 50s on Long Island today.
The cold front dragging behind this storm will clear out some of the humidity tonight. Saturday looks like it will start out cloudy but become mostly sunny by the afternoon. Tomorrow's high will be in the lower to mid 60s, just about average for this time of year and about perfect for science marching and Earth Day festivities. Sunday will be a bit cooler, with a high in the upper 50s, but otherwise pleasant.
Temperatures are expected to remain a couple of degrees below normal for the early part of next week as the jet stream takes on a very west-to-east pattern. Zonal flow like that keeps cold air to the north and warm air to the south and makes for unsettled weather with a decent chance for rain starting on Monday.
