Discussion

The overall weather pattern is undergoing a significant transition this week which will likely produce colder-than-normal weather conditions in the eastern two-thirds of the nation from around mid-week to the end of the month. Today’s rain event in the NYC metro region is a two-parter with steady, soaking rains today associated with a warm front and then cold frontal showers and possible thunderstorms likely tonight. A secondary cold front could spark some shower activity on Wednesday and then the rest of the week (and perhaps the rest of the month of April) will be colder-than-normal.
