Last night was a good example of what weather forecasters mean when they say "higher amounts of rain possible in thunderstorms". An inch of rain was measured in Central Park but only more than a tenth of an inch fell at both LaGuardia and JFK. Too bad there's not an official reporting station in the Bronx, as our borough on the mainland got socked with a couple of rounds of thunderstorms. More of the same spotty precipitation is expected through this evening as a cold front slowly makes its way across the region. It's going to be much cooler today than in recent days with a high only in the upper 70s.
Once the front moves through this evening, the wind is going to start blowing out of the northwest, bringing with it a cool, dry air mass. Unlike today, Tuesday and Wednesday are shaping up to be sunny and dry with highs in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s. Tomorrow looks to be kind of windy though.
A few clouds will likely keep the high temperature to the low 70s on Thursday. Beyond Thursday the forecast gets kind of muddled. A low moving up the coast will bring back clouds and a chance of showers beginning Thursday night and lasting through Saturday-ish.
