From the First Alert Forecast Team

  • What goes up, must come down; tracking storms and colder air

The typical high temperature this time of year is 57 degrees, Pollina said, lower than Saturday's high of 71 degrees in Islip - which missed breaking the 2002 record there by 2 degrees. Highs both days will be in the 70s.

Expectations for occasional strong and severe storms Sunday morning have not drastically changed.

A powerful weekend cold front will bring lots of rain, the risk of a few severe storms, and an abrupt end to our current warming trend! Severe thunderstorms will be possible in advance of the cold front this afternoon through this evening and overnight.

Any storms that develop will likely produce heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning. Meanwhile the forecast surface map at 8 pm (right panel) shows the cold front with its associated low pressure centers barging eastward across the Appalachian mountains. Some of the storms can become severe. However an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. "The threat of heavier rains of up to 3-5", with possible flooding, should occur east of Acadiana, into Eastern Louisiana.

However, sunshine returns Tuesday and temperatures will climb back into the low 60s! Lows will be in the lower 40s north and upper 40s south!


After a warm and attractive Saturday in the low 80s, we have made it to our First Alert Day.

Boating conditions will be hazardous all day Sunday into Monday.

In addition to the severe weather alerts we provide, you can also view our interactive radar, get hourly forecasts, and watch video updates on the go, when you want it, at your convenience, all in the palm of your hand.

Temperatures will warm again Wednesday, before another windy storm impacts the state Thursday and slightly drops temperatures through Friday. We stay dry Friday.
