Happy St. Patrick's Day! Update on everything - L.I., showers, thunder, warmth, maps, and snow?
- This just in... some possible good news amongst the horrors of war: "It’s a miracle - civilians that were hiding in a basement at the Drama Theater in Mariupol survived the air strike. Now they are getting evacuated from underneath the ruins. We’re waiting for more info on how many have survived." - @IAPonomarenko Defense reporter with The Kyiv Independent.
- Happy St. Patrick's Day! Sorry about the showers today.
- Tomorrow will be great after some possible early morning clouds/fog as highs will mostly be in the mid to upper 60's on Long Island, but cooler for the south shore and east end. I've included the projected highs for tomorrow from the HRRR in the 3rd image.
- More rain for Saturday with a chance of a thunderstorm. I've included the SPC Severe Weather map in the 4th image.
- Mostly sunny skies then for Sunday to Tuesday, and then showers move in on Wednesday. The GFS and Canadian are both showing some sleet/snow possible for Long Island and southern New England next Wednesday night, so it's something to keep an eye on, but it will likely be north of Long Island.
- The GFS is also showing colder weather at the end of the month with some snow possible.
