The severe weather of yesterday caused some damage and power outages around the area. A squall line came through around 5pm with briefly strong wind gusts and heavy rain, some reports of trees coming down and hitting homes and cars. Here I estimated at 35 mph wind gust and I picked up .46″ of rain. Earlier in the day two tornadoes hit New York City, one in Queens and the other in Brooklyn causing some damage but no injuries. There was even a funnel cloud seen in Brick, NJ.
Now the weather turns much more tranquil with cooler and much less humid conditions today and lasting through the week, in fact by Tuesday morning temperatures may fall to the 40s in many areas. A warm up from Wednesday until next weekend with temperatures reaching the 80s but humidity will stay low..
The forecast: Today, mostly sunny, cooler and less humid, high in the upper 70s.
Tonight, partly cloudy, low in the mid-upper 50s.
Monday and Tuesday, sunny with highs in the mid 70s.
Wednesday through Saturday, mostly sunny days with highs mostly in the lower 80s.
Marine Forecast: Today, small craft advisory issued for hazardous seas, north winds up to 10 knots, Seas to 6 feet.
Outlook: high wave heights due to Tropical Storm Leslie should continue small craft advisories through Tuesday, dropping below advisory levels Wednesday through early next weekend.
Enjoy this pleasant and quiet weather!
