Fantastic weather on tap for Easter weekend

    Abundant sunshine and comfortable temperatures will mark Easter weekend, forecasters say.

    Saturday will be the warmest day, with temperatures in the low to middle 60s, although coastal areas will hover in the upper 50s.

    Easter will feature slightly cooler temperatures due to an onshore flow off the cold ocean, ranging from the low 50s near the coast to around 60 degrees inland.

    Then on Monday, temperatures will rebound, according to John Homenuk, lead forecaster at New York Metro Weather.

    “Building mid level temperatures will allow for highs in the 60s and 70s throughout the area on Monday and Tuesday,” he said. “Unfortunately, it will be somewhat short lived as a cold front approaches in response to an upper level system on Tuesday afternoon.”

    But after near normal temperatures Wednesday and Thursday, above normal readings are expected by next Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

    Other than a chance of showers Tuesday, the stretch through next weekend looks precipitation free, forecasters say.
