This week's weather forecast needs a radical mid-week adjustment. On Monday it seemed like the high pressure system covering the eastern half of the country would shunt a coastal storm out to sea, limiting the storm's impact on New York. That dance is no longer on the schedule. Instead the high is further east and weaker than expected and that should result in an unpleasantly windy and rainy Thursday.

Before the storm hits we should have an increasingly cloudy afternoon and a high in the lower 70s, which is just about normal for this time of year. Rain is expected to begin after midnight as the low gradually moves up the coast.

There is no getting around it, Thursday looks to be a rainy, windy mess. Easterly winds at 15-20 mph and 1-3 inches of rain are expected before this storm passes out of the region. The heaviest rain is expected before noon, so there's a chance that Derek Jeter's final home game will take place as scheduled. Tomorrow's high will stay in the 60s.

Fear not, rain-o-phobes, absolutely gorgeous weather is in store for the weekend. Another high pressure system arrives on the heels of the storm means Friday will warm to the upper 70s under mostly sunny skies. Clear skies are expected to continue through the weekend with highs on Saturday and Sunday reaching the upper 70s or lower 80s.
