Not much happening with the weather right now. High pressure is slowly moving offshore today so we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the upper 40s. What excitement exists, and it's not much, is a Midwestern storm that will push first a warm front and then a cold front through the city tomorrow. There's a good chance we'll see some drizzle or light rain tomorrow, especially in the afternoon. Thursday's high will be in the lower to mid 50s.
It will take a while for the cool air to arrive behind tomorrow night's cold front. Friday's high will be around 50 degrees but the temperature is probably going to drop as the day progresses. Clear skies are on the way for the weekend. Look for highs in the lower 40s and lows around 30 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday. That's within a couple degrees of normal for the last few days of autumn.
The extended forecast is also lacking in excitement. A slight warming for Monday, followed by a chance of rain on Tuesday when a storm out of the Southwest might reach us. That rainfall won't amount to much, either, which is a darn shame as Central Park is less than ten inches from having its wettest year ever. To break that record we're going to need more than a couple of nor'easters in the next two weeks, however, and that's not about to happen.
