Following on the heels of Monday's first appearance of 90 degrees this summer, yesterday's high and low temperatures were both above normal. That's only the second time that both the max and min have been above normal on the same day since early June. How's that for obscure weather trivia!
Little chance of today's high being above normal. The high pressure system that was expected to clear out this humidity has yet to arrive. It's leading edge, a slow-moving cold front, looks as if it will pass through the city today before stalling somewhere in southern New Jersey. The maritime breeze ahead of the front will bring a cloudy day with a good chance of showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon. Look for highs in the lower 80s in Midtown, falling off to the 70s in the southern reaches of Brooklyn and Queens.
The front looks like it will stall to our south for a couple of days. While parked we can expect more easterly winds, clouds and the occasional shower or thunderstorm for tomorrow and possibly through Friday. Tomorrow's temperatures don't look like they will escape the 70s, but Friday should be a couple of degrees warmer. Saturday should be a transition day to what looks to be a very pleasant Sunday.
