One more nice fall day today before our first significant storm of the fall season impacts us Wed – Thu.
Today: Lots of sunshine with some clouds increasing late/overnight. A nice mild afternoon again. If you can, get out and enjoy some of it. A light breeze will be present at times.
Wed -Thu: Big fall storm hits. The secondary storm along the coast becomes a major storm for upstate NY/Long Island and New England. Heavy rain, coastal flooding, strong damaging winds, and even some high elevation snow is possible in northern Mtns of NY, VT, NH, and ME. Personally, I am not expecting much, but surprises can happen. For us: heavy rain and gusty winds. That is all.
The rain should begin late morning Wed, and end before 8 pm Wed. Since the flow is out of the deep south, I expect 1-2” rain, but would not be surprised if we got closer to the 2” or even higher. This is a set-up where we get our greatest rains locally.
Fri Night – Sat Morning: a chilly football evening Fri, but beautiful with clear skies and light winds. Frost is likely for most, and a freeze is possible for some in colder locales. Mid 30’s ought to be widespread, with some to 30. (What could prevent this is either the winds don’t go calm until very late or some high clouds move in late as warmer air begins to return in the upper levels of the atmosphere).
A warm-up (temps ~ 65+) begins for Sun and will last into Monday before another significant fall storm with heavy rain impacts us Tue – Wed.
