Low pressure lingers offshore with a few showers or a thunderstorm pushing back north into the region

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

A cut-off upper level low will remain south of the region today as another coastal system develops off the mid-Atlantic coast and tracks northeast. As this system tracks just offshore into this afternoon, clouds will increase and a few scattered showers or thunderstorms will attempt to move back north into eastern New York, especially from the Capital Region on south and east. It will be warm today with temperatures will into the 70’s, possibly a few lower 80’s in the warm spots.

The coastal low pressure and associated upper low will remain parked just east of the region on Tuesday with more clouds and continued chances for a few scattered showers or thunderstorms in the cyclonic flow. A backdoor cold front will move through the region on Wednesday with a chance of showers or a thunderstorm in the afternoon, but this front will slowly lift back north as a warm front through Friday with a period of showers and thunderstorms, especially late Thursday into Thursday night, before a warmer and more humid air mass with increasing amounts of instability and temperatures well into the 80’s will arrive for the holiday weekend.
