.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Early afternoon update: Winds have trended stronger especially along the coast, with LGA gusting up to 38 kt. Think this will be a brief surge of higher wind farther west, but be more prevalent farther east across SE CT and central/eastern Long Island. Bands of rain with the remnant low have been more prevalent across S CT, Westchester/Putnam and parts of central Long Island, with amts of 1/4 to 1/2 inch per MRMS estimate from 12Z-18Z today, and similar amts may be possible in those same areas late this afternoon into this evening. Gusty easterly winds continue through tonight, however the rain will begin to get lighter from north to south as any forcing weakens further. Skies will remain cloudy with a rather small temperature range due to gusty winds and cloud cover. Therefore temperatures will average below normal today by around 10 degrees or so, but average near normal tonight. Any shower activity tonight should be rather light with amounts under a quarter inch, and perhaps closer to a tenth of an inch tonight, mainly across southern portions of the area.
