Monday weather: Expect rainy, windy conditions - and maybe a little more


We'll have mainly rain on Friday, changing to snow for some areas Friday night into Saturday.

Wind-driven rain that pelted Long Island early Monday was expected to continue through the afternoon, becoming heavy at times before tapering off to showers, forecasters said.

Today the low finally pushes east and allows high pressure to sneak into the Ozarks. The highest wind gust so far has been 52mph, which happened at 4AM. We have a small 20 percent chance of showers in the forecast.

Show us what the weather looks like in your neighborhood. It will be less humid and cool down with lows in the upper 40s. Winds will be from the northwest around 10 miles per hour. Windy, with a west wind 15 to 20 miles per hour increasing to 24 to 29 miles per hour in the afternoon.

We'll have a clear and starry sky overnight, and as the wind dies down, a quick drop in temperatures.

Tomorrow: Expect cloudy skies tomorrow as we will reach our high temperature of 43 degrees by tomorrow evening. Tuesday night increasing cloud cover from an approaching system is expected to keep temperatures warm enough to keep frost out of most areas. A southwest to northeast oriented band of cloud cover will arrive ahead of the cold front between 7 p.m. and midnight Wednesday night.

Thursday through Saturday high pressure builds in to the area with rapidly warming temperatures. Thursday night will be mostly clear.
