Here we go again - another weekend with the threat of rain showers on either one or both days.
After a beautiful stretch of warm temps and sunny skies, a cold front arrives Friday afternoon.
This front will increase the rain chances through the day on Friday and make Saturday a damp and dreary one. The showers will be lighter in intensity for the morning hours, but the region will go from scattered showers to more widespread downpours through the afternoon and into the evening. A tropical system passing well to the east of the region will aid in supplying the area with additional moisture, which will allow for a higher chance of torrential downpours. As Tropical Storm Philippe passes by to the east, it will not only allow for more rain for our region, but also kick up some wave activity for the South Shore of Long Island, Queens, Staten Island and New Jersey. The Long Island Sound will also see some additional wave activity but not as high as off the Atlantic Ocean.
Once the storm cold front fully passes by Saturday night into Sunday morning, the breezy winds of Saturday will start to turn gusty. The area of low pressure attached to the cold front will merge with the weakening Philippe, and this will create a stronger area of low pressure. This deepening storm will drive down air from the north and west, and send it toward the tri-state at a gusty pace. The winds will be backing down by Monday, as well as the wave activity, as the storm system pulls away and high pressure moves in.
