Long Island Weather the Next 7 Days and Watching the Tropics
There may be a few afternoon clouds tomorrow on Long Island for the eclipse, and temperatures may actually drop a few degrees during the eclipse. For the most part though, there will be mainly sunny skies with temperatures in the mid 80's, except cooler along the shore. Tuesday will be a very warm and humid day with increasing clouds ahead of the cold front. The front comes through late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with some showers and thunderstorms.
Skies should begin to clear Wednesday afternoon and evening, and the air mass behind the cold front will be cooler with much lower humidity. Thursday through next Sunday should be mostly sunny with temperatures in the upper 70's and low humidity! Temperatures each night will fall into the low 60's.
The GFS, Euro, UKMET, and Canadian models all show a tropical system developing off the coast of Florida next weekend. I will continue to monitor it, but if it does develop, it should head northeast and out to sea. The Canadian model is the most bullish on the storm, and it shows it southeast of Long Island next Sunday, August 27th:
