Weather Update: Tri-State Area to Experience Cooler and Cloudy Weekend
In the latest weather update for the Tri-State Area, John Elliott provides the First Alert Forecast on CBS2 News This Morning.
The weekend weather is expected to be slightly cooler and muggy compared to previous days.
Currently, the temperature stands at 73 degrees with a gentle westward breeze of three miles per hour.
While there is a chance of showers, they are more likely in the southern regions, making it a favorable forecast for Mother’s Day celebrations.
Looking ahead, the upcoming week is anticipated to be relatively dry with only a slight possibility of showers today.
After that, a prolonged dry spell is expected.
However, it is important to note that tree and grass pollen levels are high, as is typical for this time of year.
Additionally, mold is also becoming more prevalent.
Despite the cooler temperatures, the trend of improving weather conditions continues into Mother’s Day, with a mix of sun and clouds.
Compared to last year’s raw and chilly weather, this year’s Mother’s Day will feel much more pleasant for all-day activities.
For early risers attending church with their mothers, the morning will be a bit chilly, with temperatures reaching 67 degrees by midday—perfect for a delightful brunch.
If planning a late-day barbecue, the afternoon weather promises to be lovely.
Currently, Connecticut and Dutchess County are already experiencing brighter conditions, while Staten Island may encounter some passing showers.
However, these showers should not significantly disrupt any plans.
South of the city, there is a better chance of more organized rain coverage, but the overall forecast for the Japan Day Parade remains favorable.
While some central states are facing severe weather conditions, the Tri-State Area is expected to remain mostly unaffected, with the south being the only region experiencing any significant weather activity.
Looking ahead to the first part of the following week, the weather remains pleasant and promising.
There might be some breeziness on Tuesday, followed by cooler temperatures on Wednesday.
Additionally, Wednesday is designated as Stamp Out Hunger Day, the largest food collection drive, facilitated by postal carriers.
Residents are encouraged to leave non-perishable food items outside for collection, contributing to this noble cause.
In conclusion, the Tri-State Area can anticipate a slightly cooler and cloudier weekend, particularly in the southern regions, but overall favorable weather conditions for Mother’s Day and the upcoming week.
