|Old and new sit side by side in Manhattan.|
This afternoon looks nice, with small swell in the water, and slight northerly winds developing. Crisper day, as it started with cooler air, and clouds, and it will take more work to warm things up. Tonight we will see some lingering clouds, but the marine layer is not likely to develop, with the low pressure still in charge. So, based on that, I suspect Thursday will have a very nice morning. Cool and crisp, with some moderate warming. A bit warmer than today. By Friday the next system up stream should be starting to effect our weather. This one does not currently seem to be packing the south winds we had yesterday afternoon, which leads me to believe we could stay dry this run. Still, greatest chance of showers will be Friday afternoon, into evening. Still planning on clearing out mostly on Sunday, with some sunshine and warming. Along with a chance for light winds. And yeah, there is more surf on the way, with a possible large long period west swell for late in the weekend. Monday could be a good one.
Anyway, more systems still upstream. Current model runs suggest still a brushing by the first system early in the week, but with a change to strong high pressure filling in behind it. A few days ago, several days of off and on rain was in the charts. That too was followed by a decent strength high, but not until Friday or so. Anyway, after this series of passing storms, we could see a return to the warmer, sunnier, more offshore weather that gets me excited to go hang out on the beach.
