A Great String of Weather Days Into the Weekend for the Greenwich Area!

Sunny, Dry, Nice, and Warm for the Next 5 Days Into Sunday!

The sky overnight has been, on average, partly cloudy across the Northeast and in the mid-

 

Atlantic states... And, our forecast thoughts really haven't changed over the next few days... Early

today, there's a low pressure system on the surface weather map which is located near the

Carolina Coast... And, the upper-level wind pattern is still showing a trough that is carved out over

southeastern Canada and the Northeast's interior... Therefore, as an impulse of energy rotates

around the base of the trough before it starts to lift out to the north and east tonight and tomorrow,

there will probably be just enough of a 'trigger' to cause a few widely separated showers and

thunderstorms this afternoon.... While we cannot rule one out anywhere, it appears that those

areas located farther inland have a somewhat better chance than those which are located near the

immediate coast... Highs will be mostly in the 80s, and there will be no less than partial sunshine...

Tonight will bring a few clouds... Then tomorrow and on Friday, as a ridge of high pressure

strengthens over the region (and that upper-level trough dampens out), there will be a good deal

of sunshine, along with warm afternoons... And, while some places may encounter some fog for a

while early, temperatures during the afternoons will be in the mid and upper-80s... The orientation

of this high pressure ridge axis, generally from northeast-to-southwest, will remain unchanged on

Friday night and during the upcoming weekend... Even though we aren't expecting much in the

way of rain over the next five days, a shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out around here on

Sunday...

So, we'll probably spend most of our time talking about "Issac" over the next five to seven days...

This tropical storm is still closing in on the Leeward Islands, and it is going to continue its trek to

the west-northwest over the next few days... "Issac" will be in the eastern Caribbean tomorrow and

Friday, bringing the potential for strong winds and torrential rain in Puerto Rico and eventually the

Dominican Republic and Haiti... Beyond that, Cuba will be in its path this weekend, followed by the

Florida Straits... Because it is more than five days away, the solutions of the various global models

and those which have been designed specifically to handle tropical weather systems diverge in

their tracks... If "Issac" were to move directly over Hispanola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), it

would interact with very high, mountainous terrain... This would lead to it becoming 'more

disorganized' for a while before it emerges over the water again... Nonetheless, a consensus

amongst these models would imply that "Issac" will probably reach the Florida Straits next

Sunday night or on Monday, and a turn more towards the north would mean that Florida's

Peninsula would be impacted by it early next week... Have a good day!!!
