Saturday Discussion: Grey Start to May

Low clouds and patchy drizzle will likely hold on through the afternoon hours, as a stalled out boundary lingers over the northeast.  It’s a pattern that has been stubborn over the past two weeks, and should begin to change next week.  However for today, any breaks of sunshine will be limited and hard to come by.  We even have a few rain showers around the NYC area, as seen on the latest radar image below.

Those should stay mainly to our south, but we can’t rule out a shower or area of drizzle this afternoon.  Temperatures should not move very much, holding in the upper 50s to low 60s for afternoon highs.

The “good news”, is that the heavy rains we originally saw impacting our Sunday, appear likely to be focused a bit further south, and not as heavy as first projected.  So instead of a total washout on Sunday… it looks like rain showers will develop after midnight, and continue into the morning on Sunday.  Showers should taper off in the afternoon, leaving us with mostly cloudy skies late Sunday afternoon.  Temps are likely to be chilly, holding in the 50s all day on Sunday.

Conditions should improve heading into the work week, but our first weekend of May, is looking gray and damp.  Hope everyone makes the most of it, and has a great weekend!
