Wow, this is the dullest forecast we've seen in quite some time. The threat of a Thanksgiving nor'easter has largely dissipated. Instead it looks like New York is in for a week or more of fair weather. The clouds this morning are about the only sign that the high pressure system that's been around all week is being replaced by another high pressure system. The radar is showing light rain to the west of the city and off the South Jersey coast. We're not seeing any rain outside, and given how dry the atmosphere is, there's just no support for anything other than a few sprinkles.
The clouds will dissipate as the day goes on. Even so, this afternoon's high is only going be around 50 degrees. Slightly warmer weather, highs in the lower 50s, are expected tomorrow and Sunday as Mr. Sun will be out all day.
Daily highs will gradually approach the mid 50s next week, which is normal for this time of year. Surface High pressure is expected be centered to the north and west all next week. Combine that with a ridge of high pressure above and you've got the formula for shunting potential coastal storms way out to sea, leaving us with seasonable temperatures and partly to mostly sunny skies every day through Thanksgiving.
