High pressure responsible for the delightful weather over the weekend is currently moving offshore. Return flow around the backside of the high will bring more warmth and moisture into the area bringing temperatures 5-10 degrees above normal. An onshore flow and a weakening disturbance will approach from the west Monday night and Tuesday spilling clouds into the area along with a chance for showers lasting into Wednesday.
A ridge will build back into the region by Thursday at upper levels. This upper ridge in combination with the surface high offshore nosing its way into the Northeast will make for temperatures more reminicent of late August rather than early October. Next trough will move into the region by Sunday providing the region with the chance for much needed rainfall.
A cloudy start to Wednesday with some areas of drizzle along coastal areas thanks to an onshore flow. With low clouds around and fall foliage season in full gear there's a fall look to the landscape today. As the day progresses clouds should begin to break, especially in northern areas and for the extreme southern areas. Despite the cloud cover temperatures will run about 5-8 degrees above seasonal norms for early October. Expect highs ranging from the 60's across northern New York into central and northern New England. 70's will be widespead elsewhere across the Northeast.
Clouds could hang tough tonight over the southern half of the region. Temperatures here will hold in the 50's with 60's closer to the coast and in the cities. Across the northern half of the region under clearing skies temperatures will drop into the 40's.
Current SST's off the Northeast Coast. SST's have returned to near to above normal levels for late September from southern New England south, with continued near normal SST's from Cape Cod northward along the coast of Maine.
Great Lakes SST's as of 9/29.
