Monday Morning Weekly Weather Summary: More Ups and Downs

Good morning everyone. Yesterday ended up being very interesting weather wise. We had an unusually strong cold air mass move in over the area which made for some interesting weather. I witnessed ice pellets in some of the heavier showers that moved through during the afternoon. Up north and over in PA at the higher elevations snow ended up falling. Check out the web cam from Killington Mountain last night..

Pretty neat stuff and rare for May.

Anyway as we head to this week we will have a few bumps in the road. Today ends up nice with sunny skies and temperatures in the low to mid 60s.

As we head into Tuesday our next round of unsettled weather works its way in by the afternoon as a disturbance causes low pressure to form along a stalled front working its way towards our area..

Expect showers to develop especially by Tuesday afternoon. These showers can linger into Wednesday before we might see some clearing Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday and Friday then look to be the best days of the week with sunny skies and temps in the high 60's to low 70's by Friday.

Heading into the weekend is a toss up right now. We might see another upper air disturbance spawn a coastal low on Saturday. This is still up in the air however so do not write off the weekend yet. The worst case scenario would be what the GFS is showing for Saturday afternoon into Sunday below..

Stay tuned for updates on this.

I mentioned last week and I said again the end of May we should finally see this volatile weather pattern break. That means more consistently warm weather by the time we head towards memorial day.

Thanks for reading more later this week.

  1. Nobody seems to notice how dry the air has been for this region, especially over the past year. If you check historical weather data for Central Park, NYC has not reached a relative humidity of 100% for a few years. Before that, multiple days a month reached 100%. Over the past few months there haven't been any extreme precipitation events. The most extreme event was the snowstorm that we had (over 2 inches).
