Discussion

Our taste of autumn that began on Sunday following a cold frontal passage will continue right into mid-week. High temperatures for the next couple of days will hold in the mid 70’s, but will come close to the 80 degree mark by Wednesday afternoon. The normal high temperature on this date at Central Park Airport is 78 degrees so we’ll be below normal until mid-week. As far as precipitation is concerned, it looks rain-free for quite awhile - a good week to stain the deck or resurface the driveway. Finally, there were some Mid-Atlantic severe weather reports with the weekend frontal passage including a couple of tornadoes reported in and around the New York City metro region (Breezy Point, Queens and Canarsie, Brooklyn), winds gusts of 58 mph in northern Virginia (Arlington, Chantilly), a funnel cloud observed in Lancaster County, PA, and a scattering of downed trees.
