5:20 PM WED 5.19.2010 Hello to our New York metro area readers welcome to the Tri-State Region. This zone will focus on the three-state intersection of northeast New Jersey, the NYC metro area, southeast New York State, western Long Island and southwest Connecticut. Nicholas Scirico, a student meteorologist at North Carolina State who hails from Albany with a heart for the Big Apple is the lead forecaster for this region.
INTO THE WEEKEND The area should see nice weather for the next few days as the storm system which dropped considerable rain recently has finally departed. By the weekend, another batch of wet conditions could pave their way into this area, making for a not-so-perfect mid-May weekend. The temperatures for the next few days will include upper 70's in the area tomorrow, with temperatures throughout the area near 80 on Friday.
