CBS2's Lonnie Quinn has your weather forecast for February 23 at 6 p.m.
- As far as the weather, sounds like we're going to get a break from the snow and cold temperatures. Let's get right to Lonnie Quinn. Lonnie?
LONNIE QUINN: Yeah, I really don't have snow in the forecast for New York City for the next seven days. So that's a change from what we've had February so far. Here's your picture outside. All right, there you have it.
It's still mainly cloudy skies. It's 44 degrees right now, and that is the warmest temperature of your day. Morning low was 36 degrees. So there's been an eight-degree spread. Take a peek at what the temperatures will rise to tomorrow, because it's all about a warm up.
We will be 50 degrees for the high in New York City, 51 New Brunswick, 50 Toms River. Chilly spot on the map, we've got it right here, Monticello. Typically it's our icebox reading right. Well, even Monticello.
Gang, you guys are going to be doing just fine tomorrow. Breaking the 40s, you'll be 41 for your high temperature. 45 for Brentwood. And I got a positive list here of things that you should be expecting, because primarily those mild temperatures I just showed you, you get a couple of days of them, and really primarily dry weather for the next couple of days as well.
There's a very slight-- let's be really, really, frank here. There's a slight, 10% risk for a raindrop tomorrow. That's about it. Otherwise, kind of a partly sunny sky. It's not as harsh waking up, certainly not as harsh in the afternoon.
High temperatures 50 degrees or above for some of you, and a good amount of some needed sunshine. If you take a look at the radar picture as of right now, couple of little snowflakes still clinging to the northern portions of Ulster County, and a little bit farther south into Litchfield County.
But look at this. You look at some of these snowfall reports. We were not expecting anything big. Remember I gave you my snowfall prediction for this day? I'd say a trace to an inch? Well, right here, Pike County comes in Greeley with 3/4 of an inch of snow.
So not a lot out there. Bigger picture is going to show you, this is the source of our mild air. It's a high pressure system down around Louisiana, Mississippi or so, which will be moving into the area, bringing with it, tugging with it some of that warm air. So we will watch our temperatures rise and high pressure gives us a good looking sky.
So everything looks pretty nice. As far as the wet weather or, snowy weather chances? I don't see any snow. I just don't see it Wednesday, tomorrow, there is a slight 10% risk for a raindrop. All right? Otherwise 0 for Thursday, 0 for Friday.
Saturday is looking like it's likely going to have some rain involved. Now, it's not an all day rain, it's not a whole lot of rain. But there's a likely chance for some rain showers for your day on Saturday. So we will be 50 on Wednesday, 46 on Thursday, a couple of good looking days there. Friday-- Friday's a pretty bright looking day as well.
You can take it down to about 43. 43 is exactly where you should be as an average temperature for this time of the year. 48 Saturday, rain looks to be likely at least some point during your day. Could linger a little bit into Sunday. Sunday's high temperature will be 52. Monday, 48. Tuesday, 41. So we do keep you in the 40s or 50s for the next seven days. Dana, it's all yours.
- Lonnie, thank you.
