  1. You have to remember the resolution of those forecast maps is very coarse. So we post them for approximations of where the warmest and coolest temperatures will be found. That’s why the NWS generates MOS numbers to correct some of those biases. But the MOS can also struggle with extreme events like Saturday. So we use past experience with the similar 850 mb temperatures and wind directions. The 850 mb temperatures will be near the all-time May highs in this area around +21 to +22 C. This would support upper 90s to near 100° In NJ away from the sea breeze. Then we try to figure out how the sea breeze will influence the highs further east. Long Beach may be in the 70s while Commack is getting close to 90°. JFK would probably be in between those readings into the 80s. The Central Park temperatures need to factor in the wind direction and the dense vegetation around the sensor. The models don’t know that the sensor is in the deep shade. So the forecast highs are usually warm biased. It could be one of those situations where the models have low 90s but the high gets stuck in the upper 80s. Especially if the flow stays SSE. But more SSW flow could make it to 90°. NYC has been famous for upper 80s while surrounding areas record 90s.
  2. This is going to be an onshore flow warm up with a sharp temperature gradient between NJ and the Long Island South Shore. May 1996 was and offshore flow event with Newark and Minolta Long Island reaching 99°. So this is the benchmark for extreme May heat across the area. There were a few COOP sites in NJ that hit 100°. But no major sites that I was able to find. Monthly Data for May 1996 for Upton NY NWS CWA Click column heading to sort ascending, click again to sort descending.

  3. People will be able to save money now since they won’t have to pay for weather model subscriptions to access the long range EPS.
  4. The latest EPS continues the warmer SE Ridge pattern right into early June.
  5. It will be interesting to see if somebody in NJ can record their first 100° day in May on Saturday. Models have 850 mb temperatures around +21 C. This is about as high as we ever saw the 850s this early in the season.The temperature differential between low 70s in Long Beach and upper 90s to near 100° in NJ is as extreme as it gets.
  6. The GEM has the most extreme temperature gradient of all. Strong sea breeze and cooler temperatures east of the Hudson. Has highs of 95-100° in NJ.
  7. Why can’t we take it seriously? It reached 102° at the end of June in Corona Queens. So the 103° at Newark reflected it being a degree warmer in NE NJ than Queens.
  8. Last May into June was another famous post 2010 big temperature swing. It was the latest 52° high temperature at the end of May for Newark. Followed up by the earliest 103° high temperature at the end of June. First/Last Summary for NEWARK LIBERTY INTL AP, NJ Each section contains date and year of occurrence, value on that date.

  9. Long Island severe thunderstorms with straight line winds or hail usually peak in July and August. But some years like 2019 the peak is in late June.Tornados have a later peak from August to recently November. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=171&opt=ugc&station=OKX&state=NY&_ugc_state=NY&ugc=NYC103&phenomena=SV&significance=W&cmap=Reds&_r=t&dpi=100&_fmt=png
  10. The EPS first guess for the Memorial Day weekend is much warmer than last year.
  11. We will need for the debris clouds from earlier convection to clear the areas closer to NYC for a better chance of convection later. We’ll have to see if convection can fill in as that clear area over SE PA moves Northeast. The main focus right now is from NE PA up into NY State.
  12. LGA and NYC still haven’t reached 80° yet. So the first 80° day is a month late. This much onshore flow is pretty unusual for our area in May. The purple colors below are near record levels of easterly flow for May. First/Last Summary for LAGUARDIA AIRPORT, NY Each section contains date and year of occurrence, value on that date.

  13. Very persistent easterly flow pattern for the whole month so far.
  14. I wonder if this is the first time that the same cutoff low caused rain on two consecutive Saturdays? May 7th May 14th
  15. This has to be one of the longer duration cutoffs we have seen in recent years.
