Good Morning,

The latest warm front to push up the Eastern Seaboard is still located near the Tri-State Area early this morning...

As of 3 a.m.— surface winds at many of the hourly reporting stations was still out of the east and northeast... This will be changing as we go through the course of this morning, and temperatures that are starting off mostly in the 40s will probably be within a couple of degrees of 50 during the morning rush...

But, in addition to a touch of rain and some drizzle early today, there will also be some patchy dense fog — the visibility at J.F.K. Airport, for example, was as low as a quarter of a mile very early this morning... So, after a mild and murky start, there will be plenty of leftover clouds, but temperatures should manage to climb into the lower and middle 60s this afternoon, except near some of the south-facing shores... Parts of coastal Connecticut, the South Shore of Long Island and some of the barrier islands at the Jersey Shore will fail to get out of the 50s, but even these locations will have temperatures averaging more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year...

Obviously, we will be in a so-called "warm sector" for several hours today as this morning's warm front pushes into southern and central New England, and then the focus of our attention later this afternoon and this evening will be on a cold front that will be approaching the I-95 corridor from the west...

This front should be the culprit that will lead to a couple of hours of rain later this afternoon and this evening, which may very well impact the afternoon and evening commute... Then, the rain will taper off some time around midnight, and some drier and chillier air will start to filter into the Tri-State Area early tomorrow morning... Most temperatures at daybreak tomorrow will be no lower than the 40s, except in some places located well to the north and west of the big cities — but there won't be very much recovery occurring later tomorrow... Most high temperatures will be in the mid and upper 40s tomorrow, or around 15 degrees LOWER than what we're expecting today...

While the global models are showing a wave of low pressure emerging during midweek in the Southeast, which will "hug the Carolina Coast" for about a day or two before it heads out to sea, the Northeast and most of the mid Atlantic states will be dominated by a ridge of high pressure that will be spreading eastward across the northern latitudes... Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday, for the most part, should be no higher than the 40s — even though there will be a good deal of sunshine both days... The dry weather should persist through the start of the upcoming weekend...

Have a good day!!!
