Yesterday's rainfall has pushed this year's total to 66.6 inches of precipitation. That devilish total is less than half an inch away from making 2011 surpass 1972 as the second wettest year on record in Central Park. There's no chance of second place being reached this weekend as the high pressure system that's followed the storm is bone dry. And chilly! Well, at least today it will be chilly with a high only in the mid 40s and a brisk westerly breeze.
Breezy conditions will still be around tomorrow but the wind will be coming out of the southwest, warming the city up to the low 50s. We may see some inconsequential clouds later in the day on Saturday. More clouds and warmer weather are expected on Sunday as the axis of the high pressure system moves to our east. Look for a high in the lower 60s.
Sunday's clouds are ahead of a weak cold front that should arrive at the end of the weekend. Monday's weather should be uneventful and Tuesday should start out that way, but rain could return either Tuesday night or Wednesday. There's still considerable uncertainty but as it looks now Thanksgiving Day will be much like today, cool and dry with a high in the 40s.
